Tree's Up

I went and bought the lights for the middle of the tree today and decorated it. I set up the table. I washed the Christmas dishes and they are ready for the table too. Not putting out much more stuff. To much work and then it all has to come down again.

While I was out I picked up a train for one of the great grands. I think I'll go back and get 2 more for the other boys as well.

My 12' extension cord for the deep cycle battery also showed up today. This will let me run it up to the top of the bedside so I can have the heater right there to turn on or off as needed.  So next Monday I will give it a test run up at Madera this way if it isn't warm enough I can head back home. So far it doesn't look like it will be that cold maybe in the 40's.

Good Night All


  1. Sounds like it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

  2. You have been busy! We did part of the dreaded grocery shopping. UGH So expensive.

  3. Good morning John,
    Yep which brings me closer to leaving for Yuma

    Hi JMD,

    I made some gifts so I don't have to many to buy luckily. Just my girls and one has a birthday on the 21st. The little trains are not expensive as the boys are all to young for a good set.

  4. You sound ready! I have purchased one gift online, that's it so far. Today it got up to 70 now its cooling back I was too hot in my heavy clothes! Madera is a haven for birdlife, Ive read about all the species one can see there! Wish I was heading that direction myself.

  5. You are so far ahead of me. I went grocery shopping today and was surprised to hear Christmas carols. It really sneaked up on me this year.

  6. Hi Sondra,

    I have posted pictures here before of some of the birds I was lucky enough to catch up there. I am ready but now that I realize this is Christmas month I wonder if I can afford to go. :(

    Hi Sharon,

    Tomorrow is the grocery shopping might come close to busting the bank. Even with most of the gifts done I still have a few left to do. Yes it came so fast.
