What's on Your Work Desk?...WOYWW #186

Good morning to you all...
Well as it's Wednesday and I have just checked (although I'm now 5 hours behind the UK where normally I'm 11 hours ahead) and the WOYWW gang are up and running, thanks to our host Julia over at Stamping Ground. The WOYWW linky is in place so that we can check out what everyone else around the globe is up to on this Boxing Day.
So here's my entry which if you've visited my blog previously you'll realise isn't the usual view 
(normally I'm in Australia ~ I don't think you could get any further extremes at the moment ~ an Australian summer to a Canadian winter).
The photo taken below was the view from my bedroom window this morning as the sun was just rising. Thankfully it rose a little later than I'm used to, which was very kind as I had trouble with my back...
...it just wouldn't get out of bed! 
Although that's not surprising after yesterday's busy day with skiing, cooking, laughing til my sides ached, dancing, socialising and hot tub dipping to name but a few activities, I felt like I woke with a hangover this morning (which I suppose could be a possibility????) but I think it was due to just sleeping so heavily. 

But this is supposed to be what's on your work desk post, so I better move on...
One of my presents from my daughter was beautiful wrapped brown paper packages tied up with string!

And guess what was inside....?

 Art supplies!!! Whoopdeedoo....!
It's reported that we are to have another big snow fall tonight and over the next 24 hours 
(Hopefully not taking the power away for another 36 hours again)
So I'll be using tomorrow to get to know my new art supplies.
I'm home alone at the moment for the first time of the holiday, so I want to use the time to hop about blog land and visit as many people as I can and I've also got to reply to so many kind comments I've received over the last week or so. If I don't manage to get to you today please forgive me.

Before I go I thought I'd let you take a peek at me in the tub...hey it's not that kind of blog!!!
Just me doing what I do best...NATTERING! 

 Have a wonderful day whatever you have planned...hopefully not returning to work just yet.
I'll be back soon Wink as long as we keep the power. Fingers crossed
(but I'm not taking any chances I'm off to charge everything up just in case...
phones, laptops and torches just in case)

Be kind and keep smiling! 
Happy Boxing Day to you all
