Today I’ve got 3 random things to share with you because random is just the way things are right now.
- One Little Word sign ups are open. I’ve done this now for the past 4 years and I’m planning on doing it again. My words so far have been: joy, grace, shine & peace and, while I haven’t made a definite decision about next year’s word, it has been on my mind a lot and I’ve got a few contenders vying for the role. If you want to learn more or it you want to just go ahead and sign up you can visit Ali Edwards.
- Last Thursday was our annual Christmas Tree lighting on our Town Common and I was warm from my head to my . . . legs. My feet were freezing and I realized – I have it covered when it comes to outdoor clothing except for a pair of warm boots. I’ve got a down coat and plenty of wool hats and mittens and scarves. I’ve got L.L. Bean hunting shoes, which are great for wet weather but they aren’t insulated at all so they don’t keep my feet warm. After the evening was over I was bemoaning my problem and both Dale and Tom said, you need a pair of Sorel boots. In the spirit of “there is no bad weather, only inappropriate clothing,” I ordered these Joan of Arctic boots and they came on Monday and I lurve them. I lurve them so much I’m hoping for an outdoor activity on a cold day so that I can wear them.
- I don’t think I updated you but we did, in fact, purchase an artificial tree. We got a 6 1/2 foot Classic Fraser Fir from Tree Classics and we love it. The color changing lights are perfect for us since Dale prefers multi and I prefer clear. Right now we mostly have the clear lights on during the day and then we change it to the multi at night. The clear lights are definitely brighter and I think they show the ornaments better but the multi are old fashioned and remind me of my childhood. We both love that it doesn’t have to be watered and that you can brush against it without having a jillion needles fall to the floor. Check back with me after the first of the year when we have to take it down and find a place to store it!
And those are my three things this Thursday. Have a great day!
