The tree 2011

We had a nice tree this year. Interesting shape! You can see from the backdrop that we had a warmish holiday. We’ve been watching the light disappear, and the gloom descend. One nice moment of sun came on the solstice when lo and behold, Spanky decided that she should give us a holiday gift! Yep we got an egg! And then we got another one two days later and so on–she gave us five eggs all told, through the holiday. Enough for a nice breakfast for me and the doode. Thanks Spanky!

Then the weather changed and got really cold. Had to plug in the heat lamps and still the water was freezing. Spanky said no way am I doing my business in those kind of temps!!

Here’s some pics from our Oct. 30 snowstorm. Pretty!

first snow 2011--some leaves still on trees!
