Yes, there's a whole lot of decorating going on at my house -- but there's life happening too! They're not-fa-la-la moments but pretty good nonetheless, as we count down these days of Advent.
I've been having my ear-igation treatments and they are so exhausting, I have taken to stopping on the way home just to sit or walk and chill, seeing a bit of nature's work.
This bucolic scene called me after the last one.
I adore sheep and they were out in force on this crisp, blue-sky day.
And they were quite curious about who this interloper watching them eat might be!
I've tried painting sheep many times. It never works. I'll take these photos any day.
Another morning, I attended a video shoot for our university's summer theatre's year-end giving effort.
It almost felt normal, seeing my friend Matt and our new department chair, Stephen, even though we were outside and masked!
I had to do a curbside pick-up close to downtown on the rainiest day imaginable, so I thought I'd check out the capitol Christmas tree.
Considering the weather, it looked pretty good -- the only bit of bright at 8:30 on a Saturday morning downtown!
The big balls that someone drove into last year are back, too.
And I made a quick drive down the main street. Not much to share but one spot had a fabulous window -- I'll share more details of that one later!
On the home front, Lizzie and I have been doing our own bit of bird watching between naps (for her) and decorating (for me!)
I especially love it when I see the blue jay come. He's very quick and doesn't pose well, but I think I got him, though through the glass.
And of course, the cardinals are always a welcome addition.
And the woodpeckers are loads of fun.
I leave you with a sneak preview.
Christmas is coming!
