Perking up the Livingroom for the Season
Just to brighten things up a bit, I put up a few Christmas decorations. Of course I put up the trusty tree that I bought when I worked in Hollis. Last year it was in the entertainment center so this is its first year in the bay window.
On top of the entertainment center I placed the snow globe that Cop Car and HH presented to me last year (sorry for the crappy picture, the lighting wasn't good and the flash just made the globe a giant white spot).
Where the tree was last year, I placed decorative leaves, a spice basket (pinecones, cinnamon sachet and real cinnamon sticks), and Mr. Snowman.
In the enclosed space of the entertainment center are winter figures of wolves.
And a shot of the entertainment center that brings it together.
I need to figure a way to get rid of all those wires that crap up the background!
That is my nod to the Holiday and winter season.

I started today with snowblowing the driveway. I had snow blowed last night, but that was just the first 5-6", so I had to get the rest of the 13" total taken care of along with the berm the town plows left at the end of the driveway.
After getting the driveway cleared, I took time to look at the trees and how magical they look
These trees are just across the fence
This tree is across the street from me, and usually doesn't look like much, but with the snowy covering lit up by sunlight makes it just explode with beautifull
I went to my boss's house for an early Thanksgiving dinner and she had created a lovely spread
On the way home, I was enchanted with the trees to either side of the road
Stop and smell the roses during the spring and summer, Enjoy the colors of fall, and take the time to be enchanted with the beauty that fresh snow brings to the otherwise barren landscape during winter!
For Thanksgiving NH recieved a snowfall that turned the landscape beautiful. The first measurable snowfall for fall of 2014 measured 13" here in Hillboro. I am so very thankful that we didn't get the massive snowfall that Buffalo recieved last week!
Along with being blessed with the beautiful scenery, I am thnakful for family (both by blood and in-laws), internet friends and furry friends, that I have a job, that I have a place to live and can afford to keep myself warm and fed, and that I am healthy and able to take care of myself. Addtionally, I am thankful for those men and women who defend our country.
I hope everyone finds time today to realize what they have.
