A place for my knitting ramblings ...


Meet Doug

Douglas Fir, that is.

Mel & I went to get our Christmas tree last night. It had been snowing all day (finally), so it was the perfect night for such an event. We always go to the same place. The 1st time we went there, we found a bird's nest in our tree. Someone told us that was good luck. I don't know about that, but I loved it! And the awesome guy at the tree lot remembers us. It is so nice & it makes me happy! There is something old fashioned and wonderful about it. So, now I am in the holiday spirit.

We brought the tree into the house. Perhaps tonight Doug will get some bling. : ) In the meantime, I am enjoying the fabulous smell of Christmas tree all through the house.

love that u named ur tree...do u do that every year? i have friends who get kegs all summer and name each one in the same manner that the hurricanes are named...a name for a boy, then b name for a girl, c name for a boy and so on. anyway, what a fun idea that would be to name ur trees every year : )

I like the naming idea, too! And really, there's nothing like a fresh tree... Perhaps tonight we'll bring home a doug of our own!
