Another day down, and another day closer to Christmas! Well everyday I drive to work I get to drive by a Christmas tree farm on the way, its amazing how beautiful they look, and its a shame that Im the only one who notices them around here this time of year out here.
Have a good rest of the weekend and take some time out to relax!
Time to decorate is getting so close. Bought lots of Hallmark ornaments at their Ornament Premiere on July 14th and yesterday I was in a Hallmark buying cards and they had some Halloween stuff already out. I love it.
Hey Crown.. glad you followed the coffee trail! maybe tomorrow afternoon after you wake up you can tell everyone how we meet here in real time once a year to count down the last few minutes. Make plans now!
Kalamazoo: Where are you?
DARLENE LOVE ON LETTERMEN, DECEMBER 23, 2014!
Auntie your nightshirt and Christmas corner sound great! What's in the corner, if I may be so bold as to enquire?
Okay so picture it . . . On a round table next to the long dresser there is a festive tablecloth resembling a Christmas quilt with reindeer prancing, snowflakes and pine trees with clumps of snow and yes, cardinals and holly too. Leaning on one wall (record enthusiasts skip this line) is the story and soundtrack album from the movie (Rankin and Bass) T'was the Night Before Christmas. Leaning against another wall is my Charles Dicken's book (consisting of four popular stories including of course A Christmas Carol) and in front of it is the smaller book the Christmas Box and there are two tiny snowmen figurines with deer nestled around them, there's a fabric Angel and a Fabric Santa and a wooden Elf holding a tiny puppet in his wooden hand. There's Chrsitmas scented potpourri in a heart-shaped holder (made for a candle) and hanging from a post on the long mirror is a Santa pouch containing more potpourri and on the other post my Whoville hat. There's a festive cookie tin in red with gold snowflakes and resting on top are two candy cane tea light holders (made from molded iron) and the Globe of the world so I can remember all the places Santa likes to visit. There's also a small plate with artificial snow scattered about with a little glitter and in the centre is an apple and cinnamon scented candle (ummm -smells like apple pie) and last, but not least - hanging from the ceiling (where a plant should be), there's a painted flat sleigh with a caricature of Father Christmas (my dad made it). A wee bit of Christmas still present and accounted for at Auntie's place.

Well that didn't happen. I guess I'll go shopping next weekend instead.

Oh, well, I'm sure he will come around again at some point and get to know the nice people new people here. (And maybe do some visiting!)
I sure hope Carl the camel cheers up soon. It's terribly depressing when he can't be his old "gettin' into trouble" self. Tell him that many of his friends are here and he doesn't have to be shy. I don't think anyone here will even mention the that he's an imaginary camel who travels to visit jolly members all year.
I forgot about the final countdown that folks did both on the eve before "The Season" (November 13) and then again on Christmas Eve...I've never been able to take part in them but I've always enjoyed reading them...There is talk of us hosting Christmas Eve this year...Maybe I can sneak away!!1
Nothing is more important than the soundtrack!!!
