Trees and More

We did up Christmas 2015 "right", with all the decorations, and all the fixin's.

I got a real evergreen wreath, put up outside lights, and bought a real Christmas tree and decorated it, for the first time in five or so years. It was fun getting out all the familiar decorations and seeing them again, like long time friends. Stockings were hung (and filled by mysterious elves!).

Speaking of friends, my dear friends came out from the Midwest and we had a grand old time. We shopped, we ate, we drank some nice wine and went hiking in the redwoods and out to the coast.

What a great way to end the year, with old friends, and family, telling stories on one another and laughing. We are all very blessed and very grateful. Being among those giant quiet redwoods, or standing at the place where the Russian River runs out to the Pacific Ocean, makes a person very mindful.
