Cold here; the lake isn't frozen at all and we have no snow, but it's ccccold. The white swans were here last week on their way South and the geese are loitering by the shore. What do they find at the lakebottom this time of year? Brrr. I'll be trying to get a Christmas tree in the next few days... I have an idea I'm going to try out. Today Steve has band practice so I'm cleaning and getting ready to get Christmas decorations out. I cleaned out a closet and almost have the dishes done. Doesn't sound exciting? More than I get done during the week here! I love Christmas and love decorating... but just don't feel like it when it's cluttered and needs cleaning. Back to work.
