Decoration Day

Okay, I have finally done my Christmas decorating.  This is all of it, no tree for me this year:


The ex-roommate made this a couple of years ago.  Notice the little jeweled rainbow over the birdhouse door.  Yesterday, on promise of some gas money and Hawaiian pizza, I got him to make the drive out here and help me with a few handyman things around the house, including replacing the burnt-out front porch light fixture.  Here's the new one, which is simple but a bit festive in its own right, I think:


Otherwise, just a typical December day here in Texas:  sunny and not even cold at the moment, though it will be tonight.

But despite the brilliant sunshine, the night is coming quickly now.  In an hour it will be pitch-dark outside.  Bummer.

Thanks y'all. Yes, two males - that was very clever of him I thought.

I couldn't get passed the concept of Hawaiian pizza....

Oh Frank you don't know what you're missing. Pineapple and ham, plus the usual tomato sauce, cheese, etc. Sounded weird to me too the first time I heard of it, but it's my favorite now. Totally scrumptious.
