Getting ready for the Christmas shopping season at work in October. It's a constant moving around of merchandise. Lots of wasted hours, but hey it's work.
Discovered, what I thought were deer droppings in our front yard. Found out from neighbor we had an elk (she didn't say if it was the male or one of his 2 female companions) that ventured thru our yard. Suppose to be several herds around the area.
Put up a solar powered security light up at the back door for night-time emergency purposes, finished painting the step edges in a bright safety yellow so Jim can see them (well, me too).
Son came down from Socorro and we took Jim to the Veterans Car Show on Nov 8th. Sure are some beauties there.

Jim and I visited the Bosque del Apache National Wildlife Refuge near Socorro. Son met us there and then we went up to Socorro to have a scrumptious lunch at the Twisted Chile Brewing Company. When there and in season, try their pumpkin beer!

Put Christmas decorations up inside and out taking advantage of the really nice weather. Hope to be able to buy some
Finally moved my little trailer over to my yard from across the street - thanks to neighbor willing to try it with his little jeep. So nice to look out kitchen window and see "him" every morning.

Son came down Christmas Eve afternoon and spent the night with us. We opened presents together on Christmas morning, including daughter via FaceTime. That was the neatest experience for me since she couldn't be with us. (Forgot to take a picture, darn)
Tomorrow is daughter's birthday and was hoping to have her birthday present in her hands by then, but alas when an artist is creating something one must allow time.
Decorations will be coming down on the 1st - my tradition. I bought some flower plant seeds, seed pots and starter fertilizer today! Think spring fever is hitting me already; but will have to wait awhile.

Green chile fudge is on the right and I did have to indulge in some other delectable tasting fudge too!
Speaking of the New Year 2015 - I wish all the readers a very good year, a healthy year for continued good health and recovery if you are on the mend. And may peace and brotherhood thinking and acting prevail.
