Because this is a busy time of year for me, for once in my life I'm going to organize and pace myself. I will be staying home this Christmas, so I want to give my place a festive air. I want that touch of magic, sugarplums and glitter--that kind of thing.
On the way home last night I stopped at The Bay (Hudson's Bay department store) and picked up this bird for me, and a different one for a friend. Because I'm getting together my little packages to mail by the end of the month, not, as is my wont, at the last minute!
I'm hoping to get to the park later and find some nice fallen branches and twigs with which to make my Christmas "tree." Mercifully, it's not raining today, although the park is sodden after two days of it in a row.
