I am not prepared . . . but I’ll give it a shot.
We used to put up a lot of Christmas decorations, all over the inside and the outside of the house. This next photo is from our first x-mas in our current house.
You might notice a lack of furniture . . . the rest of the house was furnished, but we were waiting for the new sofa for the family room. What you see are some of the decorations we had. We had many more.
Here’s a Topaz stylized version of the room, just because.
Click on the photo to see a larger version . . . not a ‘wow!’ thing, but interesting.
That was also the anniversary month of us leaving our old Michigan stomping grounds. Most of the people I knew had not seen me for a whole year . . . so I dabbed some baby powder on my hair, wrapped a towel around my middle, put on two pair of pants, three sweaters, and took a picture I sent out with our then x-mas e-mails.
The people who answered (not many) got the following.
That’s us nine years ago. I would now need less baby powder and less padding to achieve the same effect. Not a whole lot less, but still . . .
This year we did not do a Christmas Eve Tea . . . still recouping from our trip, plus we had a bunch of piled up things we had to take care of. We’ll have a New Year’s Eve tea, instead.
We didn’t even pull out the decoration we had up last year . . . except that Louise, my younger sister, mailed me a pink flamingo ornament. It’s the lone ornament up on our live year-round tree.
We’ll leave it up there in celebration of the season.
Here’s a stylized version of it.
Really, we don’t celebrate christmas as a religious holiday. However, it is an opportunity to reach out to people we don’t often see, or even get in touch with on a regular basis, but who are nonetheless still a part of our lives.
That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.

Astute persons might have noticed these doodles, and correctly surmised they hold some significance for me, and perhaps for humanity at large.

Please, if you are considering bestowing me recognition beyond commenting below, refrain from doing so. I will decline blogger-to-blogger awards. I appreciate the intent behind it, but I prefer a comment thanking me for turning you away from a life of crime, religion, or making you a better person in some other way. That would mean something to me.
