Oh Christmas Tree Oh Christmas Tree …

Today was the day … Yes, That day …

We pulled the boxes from the hall closet, they are getting all tattered and old. We’ve used the same boxes for tree, ornaments and lights since we first bought them more than 10 years ago.

Early today I set up the tree and un-bunched the branches. Because in order to store it, the branches must be bunched.

After a short nap, or what seemed like minutes, I got up and started untangling the lights.

Hubby got up and we loaded the DVD player with Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer on the tube and decorated the tree.

Santa Claus is Coming to Town is on now. And the tree is sparkling.

The tree above, is the old tree that stood in Place Montreal Trust a number of years ago. They have a new tree that I haven’t photographed yet.

Something to do this year.

Bring on the Holidays.

One online source tell us that we are in store for 20 cm of snow in the coming days. That is one site. The other two and the tv don’t concur.

We’ll see who gets it right.


More to come, stay tuned…


Thanksgiving from Canada

It is the eve of our Thanksgiving celebration here at home.

We will serve food with guests and it will be grand.

After the meal we will head to Sunday Niters for a meeting.

Halloween will be but a blip on the radar, as the push for Christmas begins.

There are 74 shopping days until Christmas 2013.

We wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving here in Canada and a healthy Columbus Day Weekend for you all south of the border.
