Hola!

Daylight Savings Time has come and gone and once again I'm left to struggle with how much just this one hour shift goofs up my internal clock! Sigh.

The new photos in the header are neighborhood trees - they turn so beautifully! And this year my tree planted 2 years out front by the City in my curb area has turned a marvelous red. I should have taken a photo of it on Saturday. Yesterday we got a southeaster with lots of rain and strong winds gusting to 40 and 50 mph most of the day, starting in the pre-dawn hours, and nearly all of the leaves are gone now! So I'll have to wait until next year. I KNEW I should have taken those photos, drat!

Thanksgiving will be with us soon, and then the move toward the Winter Solstice, which is the most important day to me because then the days start getting LONGER AGAIN a few minutes a day, YAY!!! and of course, Christmas , an important holiday for many of us. Those events get me through the dark, the severe cold, the blizzards and the dreariness of weeks without seeing sunshine that southeast Wisconsin winters often bring.

I've got plans for how to get through the dark at 5 p.m. doldrums, people! Plans!

Oooooo la la! Christmas Tree!

Teaser photo:



From Christmas Tree 2013.  I've been working on a ginormous post, way too long but I'll post it tomorrow anyway, but wanted to show you that yes, indeed, I have completed my Christmas tree for this year.  Hooray!  She's real pretty, I promise!  Silver, white, crystal (clear), and more of the pearl accents that I love so much!

More tomorrow, promise!  Now I'm going to hit the sack after a long day and snuggle under my down comforter while the sub-zero temperatures outside seems to permeate the inside!  'night, all.  Sweet dreams for you and me.
