The Roomie had that unfortunate Christmas Tree debacle last year where they wrestled and the Christmas Tree won and then suffered a career ending injury. So this year she got a new tree that is very much like the old one. Started out like Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree and turned into a Festivus miracle!
This year’s tree topper is a snowman. 2013 appears to be the year of the Snowman…I like it!
Hey…look…there is another one!
Even though I’m not a “Santa” Elf I sure do look good glowing in lights!
Being an elf one must be creative when trying to hang lights. It’s like being McGuyver sometimes but I nailed the lights over the door. They all work and more importantly I had a festive and jolly time decorating with the Roomies. Good time had by all!
Ah Thanksgiving!!! I love this Holiday because it’s a day of tasty goodness!
Me and the Pilgrim!
I had a lot of fun with the Roomies. I can’t believe Christmas is in 23 day…yikes!
The girls let me go Craft Fair hunting this past weekend with them and I found a new forest…yeah me!
I also found a new friend…
His name is Burrr and he sure does get me in the mood for Christmas and Winter
I’ve been undead for some time now and I couldn’t believe it when the Roomie surprised me with this awesome hat!
I am such a fan of hats. It’s something the Roomie and I share in common but this hat reminded me of a time when I was alive and not just undead. Riding in the countryside…ah…good times.
Bjorn and Homie were talking about the Winter Olympics and things got a little heated. Bjorn is obviously Team Norway and Homie is Team USA.
Although every one in the room agreed they aren’t sure who is dressing Bjorn these days…Bret Michaels? Just a guess.
The colors came out and they were going back and forth when Whit stepped in to calm the debate.
Reminding the two of them that the Olympics do not start until February 2014 and secondly, Canada is the team that will kick butt, lol!
Autumn on the Schuylkill River.
It really is true what John Keats wrote…’A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever’.
When I was being a garden Gnome I would sit in my spot and watch the seasons fold one onto the other.
Each of the seasons brings something beautiful with it but for me the Autumn is most compelling.
Thad has liked our Fall adventures as much as I have and as it comes to a close we wonder what Winter will bring as far as colors. People think of only white snow but it has been my experience there are plenty of colors to contrast the starkness of the white snow.
I hope you take a second to enjoy the last visage of Autumn before Winter gives us a sneak preview of what she has to offer.
This weekend we went to see a Revolutionary War Encampment Re-enactment. It was crisp, clear autumn day for such an event!
I’ve been around for scores of years and this was way cool. It’s amazing what happens beyond the garden.
They re-enacted a battle between the British/Hessian Army vs. the Americans. This battle the Americans won against superior numbers. Hurrah!!! They are the victors behind me. It was a great day to be outside doing something historical instead of just being historical myself, lol.
We got to walk in the woods. Bjorn’s little brother came with us. Boone is an odd duck so he fits in well with the rest of us
We decided today would be a nice day to take lunch outside.
It was beautiful and about 62 degrees. I wish everyday was this beautiful.
Whit was all for a hike. I reminded him that Fairies don’t walk…they use magic to get around. Boone was all about walking around…being Norwegian he’s quite adapt to outside frolicking.
He is certainly the happiest Troll I’ve ever come across. What a funny one.
We came across some milkweed pods so The Roomie wanted to take some pictures. She’s as odd as Boone, lol. It was a beautiful time today but all too short. I can’t wait to do it again…soon!
So back in August a friend of ours was in the hospital for a couple of days. The Roomie is somewhat Childish so the following is what happened.
Chris wanted to be hooked up to the ‘blip’ machine.
Then she found out needles were involved and she fell getting out of the bed.
We put her back in the bed to rest a little after her fall.
Being drunk, as usual, Phinn thought it was awesome that the Bars were now providing places to ‘sleep it off’. Um….no Phinn.
Our friend is fine now but when we saw the pictures we realized we forgot to share with the world the awesomeness of the hospital, lol.
