Let it snow, let it snow

Well, I got the Christmas tree put away this afternoon. Rather a melancholy occasion. Christmas is very stressful, of course, and with our family sort of scattered as it is, there's not a lot of joy in putting up decorations. Or in taking them down.

On the other hand, I note that we have a lot of bear ornaments: bear sleeping in log with sign saying, "Do not wake till Xmas"; bear hanging a star; bear in an outhouse; bear on a pine cone; angel bear with trumpet; skating bears; sweetheart bears . . . We could almost do a theme tree.

Christmas may be gone, but winter is still here. It's been snowing like crazy this afternoon. It looks lovely.
