A little bit of Christmas in the air

Every year the city of Glendale puts up 1.5 million lights on the tress in the city park...

It is a spectacular display of lights.... it is called Glendale Glitters and you can see why. We browsed a few of the antique shops and then walked through the display. The night was actually a little chilly. I had to put on a long sleeve top and wear a cotton shawl! Today is a breezy chilly morning. We have a few errands to do then I hope to bake a bread and make chicken pot pies and Mr H has everything ready for Manhattan Clam Chowder. So, it seems we will be kitchen busy today. I really need to stitch some too. I think... mind you I say think, my packages are all mailed out for the holiday. Cards were posted and cards emailed also. This year I downloaded the Advent Calender from Jackie Lawson...the British electronic card company that I have been subscribing to for years. It is the Alpine Village and everyday a surprise animation. Very nice. A warm welcome to new friends...and thank you all for such loving kind words.... you are all special! Have a wonderful day.

Gracie,
Those lights are spectacular. Sounds like it was a fun evening.

Glendale? California or Arizona? Last night was the coolest night we have had so far this year. The leaves on the trees haven't fallen off for us here in the High Desert in California.

Have a great stitchy day eating some warm bread and Chicken pot pies.

Hugs!
