The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other. ~Burton Hillis
I have returned from the south to a very cold and wintry scene here ...it's when I wonder why I live here . I am sure I came for the warm summers and lovely fall days...no-one mentioned the snow and winter or maybe I just didn't hear that bit...it happens. However when I think of the season it just wouldn't be the same putting the decorations up in a warmer climate...I am not sure I mean that...but I am trying.
Now that is not to say that the "southerns" are not in spirit of the season...their decorations were beautiful and I visited the "Tartan Room " located at the Inn at Harbour Town and took some pics of their efforts.

I managed to finish two hats and got the sweater in full swing. I have pictures to prove it. I did not get my cross stitch done as I forgot the magnifying glass. I have done this several times in the past... that is why I have four of them. I refused to buy another one as a punishment and a kick in the you know where to smarten it up when you pack your stuff. Why am I punishing me?...so with the Christmas cards to get out today and the tree to pick up tonight it will be later before I work out the schedule to get this done but I am seriously excited about it, so that is the good thing that has come out of this.

It was a relaxing week as we watched the dolphins
and the pelicans at the beach, did a bit of shopping,
lots of eating, some drinking ...now back to reality
It is a beautiful life...period!
