Well, it's that time of the year. The house is decorated inside and out, and I just have to put up the tree tomorrow with help from my younger sister Mary. The ceramic tree that lights up is glowing in the window, the candles will be going in the windows tomorrow, and the red bows are outside around the lanterns and on the spruce tree. My cards are mailed and the last presents bought today, including stocking stuffers! When I shop, it's in small shops away from the teeming malls! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I get the new Tom Brady bio under the tree (I'd like Tom Brady under the tree, but one has to be realistic). It's getting extremely cold around here and snow is expected on Monday. I like a light dusting or a few inches of snow. Makes everything so pretty! Anyhow, after the decorating tomorrow we'll all sit and watch the Patriots/Lions game and eat pizza and Ghirardhelli dark chocolate mint squares.
