While it was hard to get focused yesterday after the whole "GOAL" event happened, I did manage to execute a portion of my to do list. I was able to take a few pix on my walk, which was satisfying to say the least. I am hoping that I can walk again today with my camera in the snow- seems like it will be a good photo opportunity. But that is a Sunday thing, so let's not get ahead of ourselves.
The walk resulted in some Stone House photos from the other side of the house- I am sort of running out of view points, as I can't go into the house. Floor is a bit dicey and that would be bad to end up unexpectedly in the basement! So I went for the north side and I won't be taking pix there for a while..... unless I can get a "BIG SNOW" pic, which I am still sort of lacking. At any rate, it was a gorgeous, cold day and I got a great walk in.

After grocery shopping, and sending the MA off to the feed store to get poor old Jac some dinner, I started looking for, finding, and decorating my wreaths and roping! I love having my deck zhushed up with lights and ribbons and such, so it is a delight to do this. I have had the lights up for a week, but it really needed the finishing touches. When I finally found my ribbon, which was basically hidden in plain sight, I found a lot of roll ends. I decided to be a little different this year and deliberately use several different designs on the roping. The wreaths match, but the rest is eclectic. I like the way it looks, actually. It appeals to the pointedly asymmetrical, random side of me. I am quite sure this is going to bother the more organized, linear people in my family **coughFredandJon** but they will get used to it. *grin*
|I didn't quite get the entire deck cleaned and swept, but I have a feeling the snow will take care of that!|

|Applying the decorations- I am looking pretty stylish, eh?|
|I love the way this turned out.|
I've been collecting rocking horses/carousel horse ornaments for a long time, now, I like reacquainting myself with them each year.
So while I am waiting to see what Caesar* will bring today, I am going to be finding my joy in the holidays. Happy Hanukah to my friends who celebrate that, and may you all find and give joy today.

*The weather channel has decided it has to name winter storms! HAHAHAHA- we northerners make fun of people like that. For us it is just a slow trip into town
