We have reached the snowy loch milestone of winter, with snow sitting atop a layer of ice over the water. Today is windy, and there may be more snow, but it’s a balmy 1 degree. Will the loch be even snowier tomorrow? I suspect so.
Here endeth the weather report.
The Wee Writing Lassie (of the cheeky questions and assumptions) has been blogging some Christmas folklore. It’s nice, if not quite enough to make me feel festive yet.
I still just want to sit and write. And today I shall.
Book of the Day: Fireflies and Chocolate
Ailish Sinclair has turned her attention from the terrible subject of witch hunting in sixteenth century Aberdeen, to the equally disturbing events that surrounded child kidnapping and the slave trade in the mid 1700s.
Using the experiences of real characters, she tells the story of Elizabeth Manteith, captured on the docks of Aberdeen and transported on a slave ship to the Colonies, where a fearful and uncertain future awaits.
Friendships forged on the journey are soon shattered, leaving Elizabeth alone and desolate. However, she retains her passionate desire to find the young man who befriended her on board the ship… and to get back home to her beloved Scotland.

Ailish, thanks for sharing magic picture, in Czech is -7 outside now, little snow ,so definitely end of the watersports 🙂
Nice winter to Scotland….and whats about next book of Yours ? About some Loch near You will be ? Some lake with legend ? 🙂
Yes, the same pool, with attached legend, features in the new series. It’s partly set in the same castle, but in the modern day.
That scene is frozen magic…
What luxury you provide, waking warm and far away, first thing to see is the beauty of the Scottish sunrise, then reminders of your beautiful writing. Stay strong, be well.
Thank you 🙂 I’m glad you like the photos. This daily blogging wasn’t planned, but I’m enjoying it this week.
Great shot, Ailish, with the sun captured just right. Winter IS beautiful, even though I’m a warm weather guy.
It is. That sun set so early!
The snow is beautiful but I imagine you are even colder. If we have even one snowfall here in a winter, that’s a lot. So I do enjoy it.
Yes, we have to make the most of what weather we get 🙂
Oh wow, one degree! I hope you didn’t sweat too much?
Sarcasm aside, it’s surprising how good even a slight warm-up can feel after several days of below-freezing temperatures.
It does feel like a bit of a relief 🙂
Some of your pictures (like today’s) remind me of Saskatchewan, Canada where I lived on a farm as a kid.
Wonderful name, Saskatchewan.
