The holiday season is upon us. All who know me know that I don't like to start even talking about Christmas until December, and we don't usually get out the decorations and put up a tree until mid-month. Well, that time is here! We've already been to several holiday parties and have several to look forward to. After one day of snow, we've had cold days but sunshine to make it not seem so dreary.

It snowed last night. We watched the sky as a cold front came in from the northwest but really did't expect it to snow -- and suddenly there it came, starting at around 7:30 pm. It is just a light dusting but does look nice (and cold).

We are deep in the middle of the holiday season -- get togethers and/or parties scheduled throughout the month. Tonight is a Christmas program at the Liberty Theatre that will include choirs from the churches in town. The downtown main street is decorated with lights. "It's coming on Christmas, they're cutting down trees. They're hanging up reindeer and singing songs of joy and peace." Every year at this time I hear Joni Mitchell singing those words in my head.
