There is now one Christmassy thing in our house

And it is the Christmas shawl. Here it is in two different lights. The top one looks the most like the colors it really is. The second one is the photo I took when I soaked it and then hung it to dry in the bathroom. It needs a good steam and the ends woven in but I really like it.



Tim left yesterday for a conference in San Francisco. As soon as he gets back, we'll head out to the coast. Last year we had a little tree here and the big tree in Pacific City, but with the short time between TG and leaving for the coast, and Tim out of town, it seemed easier to just wait and do all of Christmas at the coast.

We walked around our neighborhood this morning (we meaning me and the dogs) and it isn't very Christmassy around here--very few houses have lights on. Maybe it is the 'late TG' excuse like I'm using for our house here? I'm not sure.

Beautiful shawl! And I've noticed that there aren't as many lights this year in our neighborhood either! Not sure what that's about, but you're probably right . . . such a quick turnaround between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. :-)

Oooh! I love the shawl!
Not too many people around here are decorated either. I expect this weekend will show a big change.
