I'm trying to be good, but I'm not THAT good, so I'll take one of those chocolate-mint cookies, and put on a fresh pot of coffee this morning. Thanks, Carol!

I heard about the Airstream ornament from a little elf, and I want to add that to our tree this year. Doug surprised me last year with a little stained glass Airstream ornament, also very cute. Maybe we need to come up with an ornament to take home from the next Rivettes rally.

What an excellent idea Jamie.

It is one little thing my Mom and I have shared for as long as I can remember - we have either bought or made each other a tree ornament and exchanged this time of year. Some of them are just so pretty not to have up all year long to remember the special thoughts that people have for each other....

Peace and Happiness to everyone at the fire this morning and all over - just because


Oh heck me too I'll take a couple of those Chocolate Minty thingies YUM... okay how about just one - so that others who are not up yet can enjoy too... tks Carol

Great idea Jamie about the ornament! That's sweet Sharon about exchanging the ornaments with your mom.

Thanks for the cocoa. Beautiful sunset picture, Paula. Nice shots, unusual and interesting. The frame would be perfect for one of your travel pictures. You take such nice ones. So you are out traveling, that's great. I wonder what your next project will be with all the ideas you are collecting. We have been on a tour down into Mamoth Cave in Kentucky and a few other ones here and there but I have never done any real caving. You would never find me spedunking. That's a little too close for comfort. And I am certain I would get stuck after all these holiday treats!

Jamie can we see your stained glass ornament?

Steph, if you run out of girl scout cookies, or should I say when you do? These are Pepperidge Farm Mint Milano Dark Chocolate Drenched, Limited Edition Cookies, wow what a mouthful, in name and size.

Sharon we used to make some of our gifts. That is so special to have the personal touch shown in rememberances.

Airstream ornament

Here's my ornament. Apologies (as usual) for the bad photography. I hope you can at least get an idea of what it looks like. -J

Wow - everyone has such neat Airstream collectables...I have collected everything but airstream - except in the full life version -

Jamie that is a very nice ornament - and the picture is perfect - it was just the trailer itching to get hooked up and on its way

We are thinking of heading out into the bush for the annual tree cutting This weekend.

About trees, I read this week that cutting a fresh tree is the "greenest" way to go at Christmas, followed by good use of the dry tree after the holiday (example: recycle or use as fish bed in pond). That caught me by surprise, but they are a sustainable harvest, per the story. The article stated that artificial trees are mostly made of pvc: problems with that. It went on to say that fresh balled trees for later planting too often don't survive the dry in the house or the planting in frozen ground (if frozen fits your locale!). I may leave our boxed tree in its box this year and try the messy-needled locally cut tree again--always beautiful, but to trying at clean up time. A little one to put up high to protect it AND our year old granddaughter. No ten foot tall tree standing on the floor for her to "climb" this year! What a difference a grandbaby brings...are you ready, Carol? ~G

G - I've heard that too and it sounds right to me. I always preferred a live tree anyway. Sadly, we've had an artificial tree for the past 10 years and it came down to the cost. When we were living in the DC area, the cost of a live Christmas tree was way outta whack compared to any other place I'd lived. I just got tired of putting out that much money for such a short-lived decoration. The prices in the Boston area are much better (probably because we live so much closer to the tree farms). Anyway, I guess you have to add the transportation costs into the environmental equation. So if you get a local, fresh cut tree and recycle it after the holiday (our town collects them and sends them thru a wood chipper for mulch) then you're probably making the best environmental choice.

On behalf of the environment, a toast to Georgia for the earth-friendly holiday tip. clink!
