With Thanksgiving safely behind us all of the stores have swung into the Christmas Spirit (trying to pawn cheap trinkets that no one wants). Not to be left out I decided to fulfill my role as an American and do a little consuming by buying a bunch of stuff I don’t need. In this case I spent my money on plant paraphernalia, and a tiny Christmas tree complete with decorations. And thanks to a good friend I even have a present to set under/beside it. It is feeling very Christmasy here. As you check the temperature over to the left, yes it is that cold, and windy to boot.
