December 4. The tree.

So we went looking for a tree in 65 degree weather which was a little weird. It was a beautiful day though for most of the day-This morning I walked in a TANK TOP! On Dec 4th!  (I'll clarify that I walked for an hour so I was only in the tank top after I worked up a sweat.) but I figured it was the last time my arms would see sunlight until probably February so I'd better take advantage of it.

By the time we got to the tree place though, it was raining. And no one could agree on a tree. I got voted down on the Douglas Fir for a long needle tree. We got a concolor which smells a little like oranges. I didn't go on the the tree excursion last year and the tree last year was a little, hmmm....on the short side. So this year though I didn't get a Douglas Fir I did get one that ends about an inch below the ceiling!


Still looking!

Found it!

December Photo Project 12/2

GCV&M is by far the prettiest place I've ever worked. We've been decorating for 2 weeks for our holiday programs. And when I say "we" I mean mostly other people.

If you don't feel in the holiday spirit when you leave then you're just a plain old humbug! This little vignette is right outside the gift shop. But our whole site is decorated like crazy.

We are rocking the Yuletide spirit. (ask me if I still am in three weeks though.)

December Photo Project

It's been so long since I've blogged. However, the other day I saw something about the December Photo Project and remembered how much fun I've had participating in this in the past so for Dec at least I'm in. Maybe I'll stretch my blogging muscles again and like it!

Today I worked for much of the day and came home to this newly decorated tree in the gazebo this evening. What a nice sight to come home to.
