Tree Decorating Party

Due to timetables, we did our annual tree decorating get-together yesterday at Sha's. It's at least a week earlier than usual, but that couldn't be helped unless we were to do it very late [for us].

Today, if plans continue to unfold as they should, we will be off to the cottage for a few days or a week. It's a bleak time of year to be in the country, but we did have our first good snowfall yesterday, and that will help if it stays.

Whatever the case, it's our first visit to the cottage in over a year. Last winter, we were prevented by illnesses and other events, and in the fall it was important to stay home and attend to the various needs of our poor old and dearly departed cat.

I've been trying to keep up with your posts fairly well lately, but with no internet at the cottage, I will be pretty much staying offline and ignoring both my blog and yours.

So I leave you with a few snaps from the tree decorating party on Saturday.

Have a good week.

Debbie, how did you get her and say "awww" first! That's just a great set of the usual holiday pictures that everyone loves to look at, year after year.

Well, I seem to have missed a few posts here. Love the tree decoration. I tend to not have that much on the lower branches (thanks to a certain Miss O who will remove anything low).

Did I miss a post about your feline housemate not being with us anymore? Sorry to hear that, although with all her problems it's a miracle she lasted this long!

Enjoy the cottage stay and no internet isn’t such a negative either as I’m sure you will have other enjoyments, John. The tree is lovely and the decorators look like they had a good time posing too. We are being traditional in that decos will be done after Thanksgiving.

Too early for me! The tree looks very pretty, but I'll wait until later in December to do mine.
