O' Christmas Tree!
Yup, it is officially Christmastime here now, as though the insane candy making spree last week didn't confirm that! We got our tree today, which is, to put it lightly, huge. Very beautiful. Makes it hard to walk through the room... The decorations are almost all up, I still need to make one batch of cookies, and I still have to...uh, finish a project by the 24th. ;-) Oh yeah, and draw chickens too! Hmm.
I went to see A Winter Night's YEOW in Sutter Creek last night. Way cool, a floor-stomping good time! This is the second year I have gone to see that, and I wouldn't mind if this turned into one of those long-standing traditions. Lacking musical talent myself, I am in awe of people who can play not one, but a whole bunch of instruments...and sing too! They are totally awesome. It's several groups who perform there, and all in all I'd call it a "bluegrass-folk-old-time-cowboy-celtic-appalachian" sort of thing with a good dose of humor and political-poking-fun mixed in. Sounds odd, I know, I think it's one of those things you have to see to appreciate. I was a skeptic my first time too. ;-)
