Peanut and I went walking and cut some pine from one of the trees in the grove – we stopped to see Meggie’s grave and say hello to her (and to thank her for Peanut’s arrival here). Then stopped at the dogwood bush and cut some dogwood.
Thanks to the artificial holly and bittersweet I got yesterday, my electric candle and the ‘tree’ are now colorful and look rather pretty. I wanted a live tree, small one in a pot, but am too slow to carry through that plan. However, there is always next year!
Can't really see the candle behind the vase, but it's there
The candle is more obvious when the lights are out
Now I have a star, as Norm helped me wire the dogwood together, put a string of lights (yes, Heb, the shorter string is practically perfect in length) and some silver beads on a string. It’s in the studio window and now I’m trying to decide if I want to leave it blinking or if I want to have it a solid light.
If you look closely, you can see the dogwood frame
On another note, Candy and I are going to go over to Llama Bill’s tomorrow. She has woven a hanging for him with the yarn from his first two llamas.. we are going to give it to him. I didn’t have anything to do with the hanging, but she wants my support “in case he doesn’t like it.” What do you think? Who wouldn’t like it??
Who wouldn't want this on their wall?
And on another note, Norm and I picked up some corn from neighbor Barry. We got a ton of corn (oofta!); we don’t know how long it will last, but with this mild weather (50º today), it should last quite awhile.
A lot of corn!
Christmas presents are getting closer to being done; all the decorating I plan on doing is done; now some baking for Christmas and I’ll be done. Cards are not done – I ran out of ink in my printer, so have to wait to finish printing the cards and letters. But the envelopes and labels are done, so I should take some time to put the labels on the envelopes while I’m waiting for the ink.
It looks to be a beautiful day tomorrow. You have a beautiful day!
