I'm completely giddy over things like heat, lights and working appliances. What can I say? A week without them makes one appreciate them even more.

I've been enjoying my own Christmas decorations, as well as other people's. Greg took this photo a couple of nights ago of Christmas lights peeking through the snow on a bush. Doesn't that just look like some sort of confection?.

Tonight we went to CiCi's for dinner and happened to catch The Grinch on The Cartoon Network. Maybe I've not mentioned my love of the Grinch before, but it's substantial. That is one of the things I have to see every year for it to BE Christmas. Oh my... that part where his heart grows...

I also have to see Miracle on 34th Street and It's a Wonderful Life. I like to see Rudolph, too. That Burl Ives snowman - genius.

Gary came this afternoon and picked up the generator. My porch looks bare without it, but I'm so thankful to no longer be in need of it. And I am SO thankful to them for the loan of it. I must try to model their kindness to others.

I wish I had another few weeks before Christmas. I need more time to enjoy the holiday season. Of course, I think this every year.

I'm still on a campaign to move Thanksgiving to the end of September, then have Halloween at the end of October and then officially begin the Christmas season on November 1. I think it has merit. Who do I talk to about that?
