Today as I celebrate a belated Thanksgiving--I leave you with a glimpse of the past week here in the Hood-
Thanksgiving has made another run
And Christmas is four weeks away---GASP!
I went to the "Hood Bow Party" this past weekend. Many of the neighbors gathered together to cut the ribbon and tie the bows for the beautiful street lamps which are all throughout "The Hood".
Black Friday meant shopping for many--but two of my neighbors were out preparing the lamps for the coming Yuletide Season
While you guys were stuffing down your turkey, I spent the day getting ready for Saint Nick. Almost done on the inside--still pondering the outside--I could use a man with a tall ladder!
I have always enjoyed doing my own decorating--and when my #1 daughter walks in the door and recounts years of memories associated with each decoration--I know why I do it myself.
Sorry for the out of focus--I phone pictures are not the best!
I wonder why I do all of this--and then Little Man walks in and stares at the "Choo Choo" for long periods of time. We have talked about each person and each gift on this train from Christmases Past. So I suppose I will continue to decorate as long as there is a gleam in a little eye when they walk in the door.
I LEAVE YOU WITH MY LAUGH FOR THE WEEK
My friend from "Across the Pond", Victor, posted this song this week---and I Could NOT resist stealing it. WHO KNEW THE BRITS HAD THIS STREAK OF HUMOR! THUS the reason for banning of all full length mirrors in "The Bungalow"!
YOU KNOW YOU WANT TO!
