christmas.  coming right up.  here’s what i’ve done thus far, christmas-decorating-wise:  i’ve gotten the new artificial tree out of the basement.  yay, me.

oh boy.

it’s not that i don’t want to decorate, it’s just that i’ve been frantically creating calendars, and this year it has taken me much longer than usual because i want them to be really good and i have so many thousands of photos to select and photoshop and blah blah blah.

thank goodness that’s done now and i’m about to gear into full christmas mode.  tree to put up, lights, ornament, and so very many decorations everywhere.  plus cookies!  must start baking cookies!  not so many this year, and most of them will be the healthy kind. *sigh*

also, there’s the issue that there hasn’t been a place to store all the christmas boxes plus furniture that needs to be moved out of the living room for the tree – i wrote in november about the people putting in the new tile for our former hot tub room that is supposed to be a greenhouse.  they came and did it, very quickly, but they did a poor job and the tile lines didn’t match up and if i knew how to put in tile, i could have at least matched up the lines.  so we still have flowers filling every empty space in our entire downstairs, and the guy is coming either today or tomorrow to finally do it right.  then we can move the flowers into the room and the empty boxes into the screened porch.  after the boxes are carried upstairs and stuff is put around.

on tuesday my friend Toun said, “isn’t it too late to put up decorations?”  and i said NO WAY.

anyway…taking Les for a walk on nov. 21st, i spotted this brave little flower.

it’s nice that not only have we had no snow, but because we had a bunch of rain earlier and it hasn’t been so cold, the grass isn’t completely brown yet.

cutest kitty ever.

beautiful clouds later in the day.

the next day les took a different route down on the rocks, and marched right over to the bay in which the water is receding at a rapid pace.  the ground was pretty muddy and i took this picture right before i had to run through the mud to retrieve him, because he thought it’d be a good idea to walk to the other side of the bay and up into the yard way over there.  all i could grab onto was his tail, as he started to scurry up the rocks on the other side.  whew.

darling winnie, sleeping so cute – yesterday i realized that during the day he only nestles up next to or on kevin, because kevin spends more time sitting down than i do.  winnie is 16 years old already, time goes by so very very quickly.

did i mention that les is the funniest kitty ever?  this box of cat treats arrived and he was all over it.

as i was running in the field on the day after thanksgiving i was surprised to see amy, jim, and their merry pack of dogs.  it was a warm and beautiful day.

no more spectacular red leaves on the trees.  that’s the problem with fall; it’s so very quick.

the field, no more corn for the deer.

ok, one hundred million things to do now…
