Christmas Season is here at last.
I really like Christmas. It's a peaceful time of year, and I enjoy the lights and decorations in town, and the Christmas shows. My wife and I like to watch the Hallmark Channel, they have some good movies this time of year. The weather is right for Christmas. It's cold and clear here tonight, but we have some light snow coming in for the higher elevations later in the week. I got out and cleared all the dead leaves off the roof, the parking pads, and the gutters so we are ready for whatever Mother Nature sends our way. Sure is quiet up here at night in the winter. Not a sound out in the woods, quite a change from the hellish din that comes out of the same woods in summer.
Things slow way down here in December, January, and February. I slow down too, which is why I haven't been much in evidence on the net. I have developed a habit of just not turning on the computer for several days at a time, largely I think because when I do, I always read the news and I don't want to read the news right now. Same thing with my array of radios. I listen to some programs, like coast to coast a.m. but if they get "newsy" or "political' I turn them off. A little peace and quiet during the Christmas season is surely not dereliction of duty , after all.
So all is well, and life is good. Time for me to see what everyone else has been up to while I've been U.A.
