On the Eve of The Eve.

The Grinch says that 2020 stunk. I can see his point. 

Signs 2

Also seen in Woodstock: A special mail box is on the counter of the post office. I didn't write a letter to Santa this year, but I did put a few things on my Wish List.

In Starbucks, there's a Christmas tree where people leave things for families in need.

This afternoon, Lynn came by to help me out. She put together a chaise that I just got, and then installed a doorbell that has a camera.  As you can see, the sun was setting by that time. Assembling the chaise took much longer than expected because kit furniture is tricky. There's always one hole that doesn't line up correctly.

Skywatch: Let's take another look at that sunset.


  1. A beautiful sunset. Merry Christmas to you.

  2. Wow, beautiful sunset. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

  3. ...let's hope that 2022 doesn't stink!

  4. I hope that the doorbell doesn't ring too often when you are lounging in your chaise.

  5. Boy 2020 sure was a year to forget! Jan 6 to yesterday! Well, still we can hope for a happy Christmas!

  6. Wonderful photos.
    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

  7. Beautiful sunset, Linda. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  8. Dearest Linda,
    Wishing you Peace, Good Will, and Happiness for you this Christmas and every other!
    With utmost gratitude for this beautiful friendship of ours

  9. Linda, a beautiful sunset, and I'm with the Grinch on both 2020 and the last part of 2021. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours. Alana

  10. Great photo of Mr. Grinch! Let's all hope for a better 2022. Have a Merry Christmas!

  11. Nice inadvertent sunset shot. I have put so many kits together in my life, none of them work just exactly right.
    There is lots of need in this world.
    Merry Christmas!!

  12. 2021 stank, too! Let’s hope for a better new year for the whole world. Stunning sunset. Happy holidays!
