Saturday, December 18th

Remember to click on the pictures to make them larger.

Took a cold walk to the post office this morning. The temperature was 0, but thankfully the wind wasn't blowing too much. The sky seemed to be clouding up quite a bit so we may have more snow this weekend. We walked by the town square which is located in front of the Performing Arts Center. For several nights we have walked over and tried to take a picture of the Christmas tree with the lights on. We obviously haven't mastered night photography because none of the pictures come out right. They always seem to blur or have trailing lights or something. So I'm afraid you'll have to settle for a picture of the gorgeous Christmas tree during the day. Greg took a bus to the library and returned some DVDs for me while I prepared lunch. It would have been awhile before the next bus and he was getting cold just standing still and waiting. So he just started walking, and walk he did. He walked all 34 blocks back home. His nose and cheeks were quite red but the return bus only beat him to the station by 5 minutes. He did have a late nap to recoup before we walked across the street to a Christmas bazaar.
