Christmas at the Cabin, Day 1, Part 2

Dave Mikelson came over in the early afternoon to check on us and see what time eggnog is to be served tomorrow (6:00 p.m.). Shortly after that we took off to cut a tree. This is always an experience. We want a great looking tree. But, if it looks too great then we are guilty about cutting it! We found the perfect choice. A very nice tree, but a bad top. I’ll post a photo tomorrow. (Trees are always much bigger once you get them home.)

Anyway, I hauled it home by tying rope to it and then looping the rope around my chest and walking. Here is a photo:

Rick and Lynne Robinson, Fort Collins, Colorado

We have it nicely decorated with a modest amount of lights (have to watch out for electricity consumption, you know), some really cool ornaments and some garland that Lynne knitted.

Chile for dinner. Very good with some cornmeal muffins and red wine.

All afternoon we’ve been listening to Christmas music on our Sirius satellite radio (channel 2). If you don’t have one of these for your car and house yet, you really need one! (Hey, that is a great Christmas idea!)
