It's almost ThanksgivingπŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

PIt's that time of year again. That time of year when a family tries to decide -- before or after!!

You know-- Christmas lights up and burning before Thanksgiving or after. 

When I was a kid, back when the dinosaurs roamed the earth, we put our tree up Christmas Eve. No ornaments or lights. 

So when we got up Christmas morning the room was filled with light and happy things like gifts with ribbons and a big something for my brother and for me. 

Right now I have a 2 foot tall tree on the porch with the lights going strong. And plans for the 4 foot tree on the table again. 

Pictures on Sunday.

Sun shiney!!!!

Sometimes when it's this time of the year I think about when we lived in Yarmouth. For those of you who don't know, Great Yarmouth is on the east coast of England and south of Norwich. The wind comes right down the North Sea and covers Yarmouth with cold, even in the summer.

But the thing that I am thinking of today is the time that we had temps in the 20's.  Cold!!!! Windy!!! Sun shining!!! The road look as if it had diamonds on it.

Even though the cars were as many as usual the frost on the roadbed stayed.

Sparklies allover!!!

The trees----the grass----and the road!!!

I love sparklies!!!!

The Song is Right

When the play "Oklahoma" came onto the stage the songs were and still are sung by a lot of people. The one , we who live in Oklahoma can really relate to has the phrase "when the wind comes sweeping down the plain" !!!!!

Today the "wind" was sweeping BIG time!! The flag at the bank was straight out. 

I told my husband it was straight from the west. 

His reply" totally". 

I cracked up because his usual reply would be " that's not good". 

To hear totally from him would make the grandkids smile.
