More happiness for you

(I'm glad I got a painting of this. It's
not the final version, but it went in
an exhibition and sold.  People bought
the house, tore it down and built a
black box of a house!)

It’s an absolutely beautiful day today, and the last weekend before December.
We are going to start decorating the house. We love the smell of pine wreaths
and who knows we might even get a tree.

And on this gorgeous sunny day it seems right to think about how we can possibly
celebrate. Our neighbour put a Christmas tree in his kitchen window, which means
when we look at the backyard we see it, and it makes us feel happy. That's going to
be the focus of our day -- trying to figure out how to make ourselves, and the people
who we encounter happy. 

What are you doing today? I hope it’s fun. Meanwhile stay safe. Social distance two
metres (6 feet 7 inches) and wear a mask when you’re out around people. Other than
that let’s be happy.

Update:  We saw family today -- social distanced, masked and outside.  So super
to see them.  We bought flowers at the flower store, just finished an amazing
take out Thai Dinner, and are going to watch a wonderful movie.

Have a finding occasions to be happy day.

Hi Evelyn,

Good for you. I think the lights cheer everyone up. We got a wreath, but haven't put it up yet, and we are going to get a tree on December 1, or 2. As we might be having Christmas outside, we may be getting trees for our porches. Front and back.
