Peek at the Past: November 24th, 2010
Now it is only in the 30's but it is very windy. I can hear things falling and crashing outside. The wind is coming in heavy gusts. Sometimes it sounds like a train going past the house.
My Christmas decorating is pretty simple and consists of things I really like that I've saved over the years. After Christmas when I take the decorations down, I get rid of some of them and pack the keepers.
While looking around I found Thanksgiving decorations I haven't seen for years and some old Christmas stuff.
I found an old Advent Wreath frame... surprise... I think I'll decorate it tomorrow and hunt up some candles. And I'll ask Kristine to pick up some beeswax candles. I love burning candles, especially bayberry during the holidays.
This snowman tray is from the 1970's and still looks as good as new. I love the happy snowman!
Putting up wreaths led to washing windows and making room for the Christmas tree led to washing floors and moving furniture.
Good things all considered... I like the house all dressed up for the Season. I still have to find the Christmas house flags. I remember washing them and putting them away... in a closet?
I took this photo of the chickens yesterday. This hen came right up to examine the camera and stood still while I was trying to take a picture of the fluffy butt hen behind her.
