It has been a very mild December, so I have been working outside a bit. Catching up on those things that I put off during October. I was ready to take my knocks, and resign myself to whatever the winter would bring, but thankfully this window of nice temperatures and decent gardening weather has given me a chance to do some yard cleanup, clean the back porch, put up some Christmas lights (a humble display for sure, but festive) and clear away some garden debris.
I also did some organizing of my tools area.
I feel like buying some extra Christmas yard decorations, now. I think I will look for those lighted trees that go on the porch or something. This will be completely out of character for me, as I usually wait until after Christmas to buy any decorations or holiday supplies.
During Thanksgiving we went with the grandchildren to the Columbus Zoo "Wildlights". It was very crowded. I think it is wiser to go a little before dark, see the zoo, and then leave a short time after the lights come on....just as the crowds are getting there!
