Just love this snow effect!

So this is totally not an original idea by far, but fun right?   <wink>

Traditionally we get our Christmas Tree the Sunday after Thanksgiving. We are very lucky that our favorite Christmas Tree Farm is right in our own town and it is always a fun event with warm apple cider etc.

Anyway, normally I can't wait for the four of us to get the tree, but this year the whole Christmas thing still seems so far away. In order to help myself get into the Christmas Mood so to speak, I've hung these old embroidery hoops with some fun x-massy fabric. Now it is time for some x-mas music Brian Setzer's Orchestra ) and maybe some hot buttered rum? Mr. G. usually makes a batch of that so maybe I can get him to do that when he comes home. (from Costco people, on the day before Thanksgiving!)

I'll end with a picture of myself, taken this morning after yet another run. I've again lost a couple of pounds which is great, almost to my my goal. It's been tricky to find half an hour in between all the rain showers, but I managed a spot at 8 am. (yes, 8 o'clock in the morning!) The clouds were swerving madly, hundreds of geese overhead on their way south and the lovely smells of wet leaves every where. Not bad at all!

Happy Thanksgiving Holidays to those of you who celebrate!  {smile}
