The day of the tree

The 2017 tree
This is the day that the Christmas tree moves inside.
That's the official sign that the season has
begun at our house on Cherrywood Avenue.

Making space for the tree in our quite small house
is a bit of a deal, but I imagine that's true for many
people in this city.  We were so inspired by the
air of celebration, creativity and beauty in New
York City, that we're excited about starting the season
here at our house.  Still -- moving furniture to accomodate
this green symbol of the return of the crops is tense
making.  Thank you to our son Christopher for his

Here's a photo of a former tree.  Our preferred kind
is Fraser Fir, but they were sold out this year.  We
have been buying our trees from the same people
since our children were very small.  Now the owner
is leaving the selling work to his children.  And
the son who sold us the tree is now a very tall grown man,
who we haven't seen since he was about eight.
What a shock!

Have an enjoying the season day.
