I am pleased to say that we have always had a real tree....as far back as our first year together - when we lived in a 25 floor apartment building - we went into the regional forest and cut a little 3 ' tree hid it in a garbage bag to get it in the building - Yep huge fire code breaker but It was fun - and we had only two boxes of ornaments - that I think we have a few left from 25 years ago almost...

Now we make a note of taking the over crowding trees down - and they are usually charlie brown trees with not much to them - either balsm or sometimes we even take a hemlock - the odd White Pine (only if there are 3-4 crowding each other. The last 8 years it has been neat to watch the trees in the are that we have cut down - they are beautiful -
Not hard to get a 14' tall and skinny - perfect for our place...

Good on you all for being so environmentally conscious - cut back on the lights a bit too and just do a few accents instead of the entire house That is what we are doing this year - because we are lazy
.....and we have been hit with some record snows before Peter had a chance - besides like I said I don't want him up on the roof

Nice, Sharon! I'll bet you just love the scent of those freshly cut trees too.

I was going to put up more lights this year, but after thinking about it some more I changed my mind and decided to stay simple. We have just the white light strand on a little azalea by the door -- you can see it in my avatar pic reflecting off the Airstream. I love these little lights that twinkle brighter in spots, especially nice in new fallen snow. I put them up early, and leave them up long after Christmas has past, about the time I need them for the Bambi.

I'm playin' some of my favorite Christmas CDs tonight -- Charlie Brown's Christmas, New England Christmastide, Harry Connick Christmas Album, and Nat King Cole. I wonder when GT1963 will release her Christmas CD.

I like the white lights too...

We had coloured in our first house and they all faded and peeled. Our next house was a Victorian Style home - so we went with all white lights...Soon the whole neigbourhood went to white lights

Here where we live now - we still use white lights -they just look so pretty...But we have none up anywhere yet...Annie had a good Idea and just put our little Palm Tree up in the window - and PINE for Florida

Jamie - I don't play Christmas MusicI would have to learn it - and that takes too much effort

I am working on my 7th Album now! I have composed well over a 100 but only the really nice ones make the albums Just an easy way to organize the compositions. This next album is called Heaven's Garden.
I was just working on a piece representing a Butterfly fluttering around all the pretty flowers..

Jamie, your music sounds wonderful over the crackling of the campfire Your CD's are great...do you play the "old" John Denver Christmas? That is one of our family favorites. I still crack up at Miss Piggy squealing, "Piggy Pudding??!!!!" Barbra Streisand makes my Christmas, along with Manheim S, Bing, the annual "So That's. . ." Something's gone bad with our player, so I'm depending on radio and XM so far. What do you all like to hear at Christmas? Oh, I always love the classical CD's: chants, brass, and so on.

No, I don't have the old John Denver Christmas music, but I sure wish I did. Tonight I'm adding our cd of The Grinch that Stole Christmas. I just love the Welcome Christmas song. "Fah who for aze! Dah who dor-aze! Welcome Christmas, come this way!" And I brought out The Nutcracker (Boston Symphony) and a classical guitar Christmas album (Liona Boyd). And how could I forget Barbara! Of course, I have Barbara singing Ave Maria. It's like buttah, I'm tellin' ya!

Steph, any more of that Baileys for our hot drinks?

Sharon, Heaven's Garden sounds beautiful! Won't that be just what we need come spring?

Sharon, I'm just in awe of your composing. I wish we could all hear your music through this virtual campfire. That would be sooooo fine ~G

Thanks for the Kudos ~G I don't think you ever did send me your e-mail address so that I could send you a couple of songs.??

Once I get my new computer I will hopefully spend some time working on a new website and will have sample MP3's for download. Maybe earn a few pennies for gas money

It has been a lot of fun playing again I am so glad for this forum, and the Rivettes here - I honestly do not think that I would be playing again if the cards had not fallen as they did and it all started with the Summer Solstice thread...

I think I would like to go back for lessons and learn how to play from sheet music again. In the meantime I just fire off what comes to my head and happens upon the keys. I am very lucky! all my pieces are one of a kind as I can not play the same thing twice...so it really is ironic - in order for me to play it again (Sam) I will have to learn how to play my own pieces from printed music (which I will be able to produce once my new computer and softwared arrives sometime next week.

Upgrading my system to the new iMac 24" - with Leopard as well as the new version of Logic Express 8, Music program.

I will miss going to Florida!!! but I will have plenty to keep myself busy this winter - no fear of Cabin fever -

We have had a ton of snow - over a foot already in about 4 different snow days this past week.

I guess everyone is busying themselves with the holiday preparations.

I am making stuffed mushroom neptunes for the ladies lunch tomorrow - so I might leave a few for you all to try for a lunch snack....

hey Sisters!

I have been away for several days! Looks like the rest of you have too! It has been a hard few days for me. My dad took a turn for the worst at the nursing home and we had to spend lots of time with him. He finally passed away after a long struggle at 3 a.m. this morning (Dec.10th). It was time and we were thankful that he gave up and went "home". He is in a better place and pain free! At least that is what I believe. We will be busy this next week taking care of business and getting my mom into some kind of routine that is better for her. Since she is just across the street it will require a little less energy, but a little more time. Hope the rest of you are getting some great Christmas shopping done. I have NOT yet started mine. Yikes!!! Could be the year that everyone here gets a lump of coal!! LOL

Lou I am so sorry to hear of your father's passing. I am glad you were able to spend that time with him. You have always been so good with watching over your parents. I hope you are faring well and taking solace that his pain is no more and he had a wonderful and long life.

Don't worry about shopping but that lump of coal just won't do, you all are waaay too good to have coal put in your stockings.

Wishing you a bright new year and bountiful blessings.

Hi Lou,

So sorry to hear of your dad's passing..my deepest sympathies for you and your mom..it is a hard time to go through for sure..my dad passed away back in 2001, and my mom doesn't drive, so a lot of the time between then and now, I take her out on her errands..seems to be quite a convenient thing that you live across the street from your mom..do you have siblings?

Lou we are so sorry to hear that your Father has passed away and now gone in the time of yesterday and today. But share in your peace that you will remember your Father the most within all the tomorrows.


Life is eternal; and love is immortal;
And death is only a horizon;
And a horizon is nothing
Save the limit of our sight.
-Rossiter Worthington Raymond
