My Walk with me Wednesday
The snow has been melting a little over the last couple of days. It's a little colder today than it has been and I saw a flake or two falling. I am holding out hope for a white Christmas. I have not seen a green one yet and I don't think I really want to. It would not be the same. I would feel lost and weirded out if I didn't have to bundle up like the Michelin man to head outside on Christmas Day.
This tree is one of the ones I would love to decorate next year or the year after with some of these solar powered Christmas tree lights for outdoor use.
This one too. They are both in the part of the yard that I can see from my living room/kitchen windows. Way too far to try to run a cord out and really, who wants that much electrical cord laying around the yard. Especially if it snows on them, melts a little then freezes solid. Not fun trying to get them out of the snow after that.
These trees are off the to side and I think if we did the shed like the house, we could do these trees too with more of the solar lights. They are pretty pricey, but think of all the money you could save on Christmas Hydro over the years and all the energy conservation too.
I managed a quick picture of the finished scarf before packing it up and sending it off. I really like this one. The colours are so soft yet bright. Like spring growth on the end of a pine tree. It is incredibly soft and wrapped twice like this, so warm. I think there will be another one of these on the needles after Christmas. I even have enough yarn left to get a wrist warmer. So if I make one more scarf with the same yarns, I'll have two wrist warmers from the leftovers of each.
