Stop by and finish your holiday shopping with a great selection of homemade greens (wreaths, kissing balls), handcrafted ornaments, baked goods, jewelry, and other small gift items.

So far a very mild start to the winter season. Chilly but still nice enough to walk around the neighborhood. I recently paid for my plowing service for the season which ensures a mild winter. If I relied on myself to shovel out my driveway, I’m sure we would be pounded with a lot of snow this year, so I look at it as insurance. I’m just grateful we have someone in the area that plows as that makes my life a whole lot easier. My cat is still very much being entertained with multitudes of pigeons, wood doves, blue jays and cardinals as well as assorted little birds and an occasional squirrel. She finds the country life very agreeable as do I. Enjoy your week.
