Weekend Watching

It was a weekend of winter markets in our area and while strolling through a fantastic Bavarian themed market with a lovely selection of items, I watched myself leave behind many wonderful holiday items.  I do know my limits though and there was no way I was leaving without an almond chocolate croissant from a French bakery that will soon have me as a loyal customer.

One of my favorite holiday events of the season is decorating my mother’s Christmas tree and smiling over a lifetime of memories as we hang the ornaments.  This year we had the added bonus after decorating the tree of watching a community tree lighting with beautiful lights everywhere.

I watched the blue jays join the cardinals in the new bird comfort zone and

 the squirrels were wondering why I did not appear overly concerned about their comfort level.

After watching the College Football Playoff Selection Show and finding out that Notre Dame has a chance for the Championship and will first play against Clemson later this month in the Cotton Bowl, I think more than a phone call to Santa is needed and a visit will be necessary for my latest Notre Dame victory Christmas wish.

  2. Sometimes wishes do come true. 😉 That community tree is stunning. If I lived in the area, I would drive by it at night every chance I got.

    1. It’s going to be a tough game for Notre Dame and may require a few visits to Santa.😁 I always enjoy the Christmas trees and lights and have a few more to visit.🎄😁

    Good coffee and an almond croissant is the way to start the day! Great photos, very colourful, and here’s hoping the week ahead is full of colour (and another croissant or two…)

    1. Thank you and I will definitely be enjoying another croissant this week!😁 I love the Christmas trees and lights and may have to buy Gabby one of those collars with flashing colorful lights to brighten the days.😁
