Strolling along…

To the sweet sounds of carolers on the steps of the capitol, so many people were down at the capitol last night, so what all the to do was about, well last night was the lighting of the capitol tree, and a down town stroll.  I had missed the last two tree lighting due to weather, and also being ill.  So being the weather was pretty dang perfect, and I was feeling pretty cheery as well, it was the perfect time to go down town and see that tree.

So I invited my mom to come along, and we boarded the bus and headed downtown.  We got there during the middle of the caroling, then it was time to light the tree.  People were buzzing about, and there was a slight chill in the air, nothing that was too much.  It was really nice out, so we gathered around the tree, and the countdown began.  5, 4, 3, 2, 1…  Lights on, and all smiles and cheers.  There was a light show, the tree itself bright with lights, sparkle and glitter.

With that, there was a downtown stroll, and food available, smells, sights, and sounds.  A perfect time, with perfect company.  With all that, here are some photos of the night.  Enjoy.

Oh Christmas Tree, oh christmas tree…

Yes, y’all it is pretty that much time of the year, well at least it is for me, where the tree comes out and I get in the spirit to decorate, so that is pretty much what I did, no waiting for after the thanksgiving season, heck I just got that tree and did it up.

So here I sit, with a bottle of white wine today, blogging this out, and posting up pictures of the decorated tree.  The decorating was very fun, me and mom decorated this tree, I think it looks really beautiful.  Come on Christmas, I do believe that I am ready, as ready as decorating goes, since I have not even done any shopping this year, but ah, c’est la vie, I say.  So how is all your decorating for the season going, or will you just be waiting till December to put up those sparkly lights and that tree.







All that is left, is to put presents under…  To be continued!

Day 5:

Today I am… In the spirit.  Well today mom put the finishing touches on the tree, I decorated it with the ornaments, and even put my little elves in-between the branches, too bad I didn’t have more of them, perhaps next time around I can find some.  I took some photos, ah, it is so feeling like Christmas time to me.  Even with all that has gone on through 2013 for me, I feel more in the Christmas spirit than just about any other year, and I pray that next season will also be the best for me.

Here are pictures of my tree, and the wreath that my mom made for my fireplace, here’s to the season my reader’s yes sir!  Today I am… In the spirit.
