Christmas Tree decorating AND a snow day so rare on our island.

I took the day off to decorate the tree. It is done. I think it turned out really well.
I haven't decorated the house yet. I'll do that on the weekend.
But it is fun to have much of it all over the place waiting for me.
The cats love the tissue used to wrap the ornaments. At one point the calico, Cassie, was covered with about three feet of poofy tissue. I put my hand in the pile and it was so warm around her. She is old now and loves to be where it's warm.
I popped out to the greenhouse to make sure everything was okay. The cold wind showed us where there was a leak in the join between the two sections. So that is plugged up now. I bought a space heater yesterday as a backup source of heat for the citrus end of the greenhouse. The original greenhouse heater is pretty old now and we don't trust it 100%.
The back yard is just so pretty in the snow. Allan was outside before I even woke up and he saw deer foot prints in the snow. We have never seen a deer here in the 37 years we've lived here. I know they are destructive in gardens, but they sure are beautiful.
