I am a sucker for the holidays (aside from tacky decorations and contemporary holiday songs - those are free to disappear from existence). This is the time of year when I hang out with Bing and Fred at Holiday Inn and dance around the house with Andy Williams. On that note, does anyone know of a good version of 'Carol of the Bells'? I am horrified by what Mannheim Steamroller did to it, and I need the real deal. Decor is minimal around here, and that suits me just fine. I have a miniature fake tree on the table that was once decorated with various treats and given to the family dog. Now it's just a wonky tree. But it works. A strand of white lights hang in my front window, and that's festive enough. The only thing that was missing around here, in my humble opinion, was snow.... but now that's here, too!
Alright, alright, I'm cheating. This photo was taken in the San Pedro Mountains in New Mexico 2 years ago. The Beastie Wild Things have trampled all of the snow in our backyard, and now it is less than photogenic. The snow is really there - I promise.
