… in at least 11 years. First time I’ve had room for one.
I loved getting out my old ornaments. I’d forgotten they had a theme: animals and birds. You can tell how long ago I got many of them; an embarrassing number of the animals are … ulp … unicorns.
I cut the tree this morning at a nearby farm. My first noble fir! Most places I’ve lived noble firs have been too pricey to think about. Here, they’re no more than the scruffy Doug-firs (people in the Northwest are on a nickname basis with their conifers, you know) that have been drying out over at the Boy Scouts’ lot since Thanksgiving.
Big storm moving in. Wonderful to sit here with a fire roaring, lights glowing, and a cup of creamy coffee for sipping.
Hope you’re having as good a weekend as I am.
Oh yeah, here’s a version of the tree I computer-artified for ya:
Not great art, but lots of fun playing around with The GIMP.
