Colliding Holidays!

Good morning!

We made it to Friday.  This week that feels like no small miracle!

As I type this, the sun is gradually coming up (though it looks like it could be a glooomy day - grey and damp) and Mable is comfy on her new perch waiting for the birds to start feeding.

The other day, Dee posted a picture of a house all decorated for Christmas and in the middle was the skeleton from Halloween.  I knew I had seen one still up somewhere and yesterday I saw it on my way to work.  It's the skeleton I posted about back in October - right by the sign for a chiropractor's office.  And now, the skeleton is dressed for Christmas!

Not the best picture, but taken from the car as I drove by (there was traffic in front of me and behind me).  Cracks me up.  I wonder if the skeleton on the bench by the canal is wearing a hat and scarf this year (I don't remember it ever being dressed appropriately for the holidays).

The steaks Fletch grilled last night were delicious.  We had baked potatoes and roasted Brussels sprouts with slivers of garlic mixed in.  And, we did christen the wok with a fire!

It worked perfectly and is nicely a bit deeper than our previous "bowl."  That was good as a little later the winds picked up.

I'm looking forward to meeting up with Dee tomorrow for coffee/knitting/chatting.  Meanwhile, it's time for me to get moving.  I have a conference call at 8:30 and another one at 11.  Cheers to the Weekend!  Make it a good one.


  1. Have fun with Dee!! Meeting up with someone and doing something is always nice and fun. My sister and I try to craft/knit together.

  2. There's a house near us that usually does a big display for Halloween, and they left it up for several weeks after this year. Earlier in the week I noticed that they'd finally cleared it -- except for the one big skeleton. I'm waiting to see if it gets decorated for Christmas.

    Happy weekending!

  3. If I had a big skeleton in my yard, I'd definitely decorate it for the holidays!!! Have a great weekend, Vera. :-)

  4. That seems perfectly appropriate for a chiropractor! I hope today is an easy one at work, and have a fun and relaxing time with Dee tomorrow!

  5. I am chuckling at that Wintry Skeleton! Have a good day and an even better weekend!

  6. That Santa Skeleton had better stand up nice and straight since it's representing a chiropractor.

    Have fun with Dee. (I know you will.)

  7. A skeleton is very appropriate for a chiropracter!

  8. Now the skeleton there seems rather appropriate to me, but in a yard full of Christmas decorations? Nope. I'm glad Mabel is enjoying her perch. Be thinking of the rest of us as you enjoy your time with Dee.

  9. I agree that the chiropractor skeleton is more appropriate than the one surrounded by Christmas decorations. I think the wok was a brilliant idea - enjoy!

  10. And that Mabel seems to love her new MabelSpace.

  11. "I'll see your nekkid Skelly and raise you a Skelly in A.SANTA.HAT!"

    You win this round, Vera!

  12. What a funny sight! The campfire looks relaxing!
