Last night I finished putting up all of my Christmas decorations. Every year I tell myself I will scale down and do a little less. Then my granddaughter arrives and asks me to take her around and show her everything. We light things, wind up things, count things and at the end she say: thankyou grandma for showing me your beautiful things. That makes scaling back an impossibility! When I was done it was about 11pm. Surprisingly, we have no snow as of yet. I put on my big down coat and went out on the deck and was stunned by how beautiful the stars were. They were brilliantly clear. I could see the Pleides(seven sisters) and count each star. How wonderful it is to see Orion on the rise with Sirius(my favorite star) trailing alongside. It was absolutely still. While I was watching the sky, a beautiful meteor went slowly across the horizon shimmering green and white. Winter is here.

[> ah! That sounds lovely!! Banish all thoughts of scaling back of the decorations; events must be celebrated! -- poule, 12/ 1/11 9:27am
