Still green

So it’s the 18th of November. The first seed catalog of winter came yesterday. And today i was working in shirt sleeves with a bee buzzing lazily around. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.

Tomorrow i’ll be out cutting Christmas trees and unless something changes drastically it won’t be anything like cutting last year. I can’t remember if i published that the evening after it happened, but it was within a day or so. Twelve months ago there was already close to three feet of snow on the ground.

I’m not complaining, last winter was hard. But round these parts you start to wonder if you’ll be paying for this weather with some lovely June snow. Ah well, nothing i can do about it anyhow. And tomorrow many trees will be slain for the sake of the baby Jesus, though conditions won’t be so dreadful that we sing:

Christmas tree, Christmas tree
Little baby Jesus made a hell for me

  1. Can I be green with envy?

    I’m kind of hoping some holiday decorations blew out of the trees last night… we had a whopper of a wind storm. Enjoy your beautiful day.
