Passed this tree on my walk this morning and thought it looked like a Charlie Brown Christmas tree. I wanted to take it home and decorate it. : )
☁ ☂ ☂ ☂
Walked up and down and all around the streets in town. Around one of the cemeteries and the ball park loop. Didn't see anyone else out this morning.
An uneventful but still a nice walk. One nice thing about this warm weather is that I haven't missed one single morning of walking due to icy or cold weather.
Walked 5.3 miles.
☂ ☂ ☁ ☂Toady we decided to take a ride out to Washington, Pa (about 2 hours drive from home) to check out an antique mall that is located inside a mall. That may sound like a crazy idea with it being so near to Christmas but surprisingly the mall was not that busy. It seemed just like a regular shopping day.
Lots of great stuff to look at in the antique mall but just bought one thing, these cute vintage Mr and Mrs Santa S & P shakers. Here they sit on my hutch.
We walked around the mall and went in and out a few stores. At Joanne's I bought two huge skeins of yarn in different shades of blue. With the white I already have I'm going to knit the last ripple scarf!! This last one is for Krista who has been waiting patiently for hers.
Had a nice lunch out and stopped in at another antique store on the way home near Morgantown, WV.
On the way there we were amused by this sign and stopped to take a picture.
No Wednesday night service at church tonight because it was changed to tomorrow for Christmas eve.
Maybe this evening I'll start the last scarf, and I already hear that bowl of ice cream calling me. : )
Hope your day has been a happy one.

Let Every Day Be Christmas
by Norman Wesley Brooks
Christmas is forever, not for just one day,
for loving, sharing, giving are not to be put away
like bells and lights and tinsel, in some box upon a shelf.
The good you do for others is good you do yourself.
Peace on Earth, good will to men,
kind thoughts and words of cheer,
are things we should use often
and not just once a year.
Remember too the Christ-child, grew up to be a man;
to hide him in a cradle, is not our dear Lord's plan.
So keep the Christmas spirit, share it with others far and near,
from week to week and month to month, throughout the entire year.
