    Cool and clear on the mountain. We had a little rain last night but the sky is amazingly blue on this lovely Saturday. 41 degrees overnight.

    I was going to do a whiney thread and moan about the election but I thought better of it. So many insightful and informative things have been posted in other threads already and I feel it has been well covered.

    That said, we are moving toward the Holidays of Thanksgiving and Advent and Christmas and New Years.

    This is a busy time of year, but I think, a fun one. Some will enter the holiday season missing a loved one for the first time for that holiday. Yet such is life.

    This time of year brings back memories of childhood for me. It also brings to mind cherished traditions of the season. Thanksgiving Turkey and dressing. Advent wreaths and candles. Christmas trees.

    TOTD: Are you getting ready for the Holidays yet? They're just around the corner. (I know, you're welcome for the reminder.) Are you starting to get in the holiday mood? What things do you do to celebrate. What do you reflect on this time of year?

    Happy Holidays CU.

    Off this weekend as we prepare for the pure insanity of a dozen or so crazed twelve year-olds descending upon our humble abode to celebrate the birthday of Tristan. Yay, me. I should start drinking now...but it is only 9:30...

    TOTD: Shannon plans for Christmas in July. She lives for it. I live for Halloween...and "pigging out" on Turkey Day. I like Christmas, don't get me wrong, but working in retail, well, we love this time of year (ahem) but I hate the way people behave when they get stressed.

    I DO love the smell of a freshly cut Christmas tree. Best smell in the world. Next to puppy breath, of course! :D

    Christmas trees. I love 'em too. I like a mix of decorations, some traditional and some modern. I have a little Starship Enterprise tree ornament that has little lights on it.

    Santa always makes it through.

    Tonight in the Jukebox I'm going to play the old song about Santa and Sputnick just for you.

    Ha! And again I say, Ha! Santa and Bubba will prevail. I actually look like Santa a bit as I get older. It's getting hard to find spandex that will stretch that much.
