Christmas approaches very quickly and the last of my decorating will be completed today, Friday 12/22. Fortunately outside was completed before the arrival of the snow and cold that descended on Colorado Wednesday night which coincided with the last day of School.
Thursday morning …. but No driving!
Her snow dance worked
Today’s other missions are a haircut and then Christmas fare shopping of the Beef! Last year marked the change from Turkey to Prime Rib and it was SUPERB !
When the beef and veggies are purchased and the curls are gone it will be time to finish the office area and the Yoga/Lodge room which I got a good couple of hours in on yesterday.
Lodge room complete
Christmas goodies all done and my garland is coming together well, just a few more add ons this morning.
Last look at the Christmas lights contest …….. and suddenly we have moved from 83% of the vote to equal 1st as suddenly, and quite unrealistically, the Fire Dept surges up the leaders board. By the time I get home from the shopping we are now behind as the Fire Department has taken over the lead …….. looks like I’ve had some “Russian hacking” of the vote? As the afternoon moves on the lead has got bigger and bigger and Brenda calls for a recount after the last voting is done at 1700.
Sometime later the organizer texts Brenda so say there was a lot of bidding from the same email and those votes have all been removed and we are once again the WINNER!!! I honestly can’t imagine why anyone would want to rig the vote especially as their display was not that good. Point made, back to the garland ……..
This is like the tree adding more “bits” each year

1200, Saturday and sadly I’ve finished and have NOTHING left to decorate …….. so that’s it for 2017
