Just sipping coffee amid the lights. You must take into account that there are 5 more lighted trees that you can't see from this view. I am sitting right smack in the middle of it all.
I went outside to bring in the newspaper just so I could see what it looks like from out there. I must say, I don't need any outside lights! LOL. It's ablaze with light from the road.
Thank you all for the computer dying sympathy. It is still alive and should remain so. It will just be s l o w.................and I do mean, slow...
Isn't this a cute musical snowglobe? It's from Princess House and was a gift from my son's former girlfriend.
This will be the first year I am not setting my dining room table. On Christmas Eve I am having my family over. We are not having a dinner, so I don't need the table set. We are just doing heavy appetizers. I will have to spend a little time this weekend making meatballs (I copied Tea's Sweet & Sour sauce recipe to try). I need to come up with some type of punch to serve. Anyone have any good punch recipes? I think I will do one alcoholic and one non. I never make punch, so I have no tried and true ideas. My family members are not big drinkers, so the punch needs to be a sissy type alcohol--something like Bailey's Irish Creme...or other sweet stuff.
Today I will also make some sort of centerpiece for the table. You just know that I am not about to leave it bare! I've actually already made a large candy topiary that will be part of the centerpiece. I just need some greens and a few other things.
Well, off to rummage through my junk store. Ummmm, I mean my basement. Last year I made a Christmas table runner and have not found it yet.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
