Snow in the courtyard

It's no wonder we put up lights and decorations for the holiday season. Everything else is so dark and drab that we need a bit of colour. At least snow is white (well it starts out that way) which reflects what little light we get. Otherwise, my picture would be even darker.

The view from my office window isn't any better. The homeless guys have added some extra tarps and such to their tent, and look to be surviving the cold fairly well. They don't seem to be disturbing anybody, which is much more than can be said for the summertime vagrants.

That being said, we are down to ten days before Christmas. We aren't going anywhere this year, which makes this the first Christmas that we celebrate in our condo. We didn't even decorate last year because we were away. All that will change this weekend though. We'll make our place all Christmassy and pray that our pets don't kill themselves by eating the ornaments. We have already banned tinsel from the house, based on past year's experience.

Hey, wouldn't it be neat if the homeless guys decorated their tent for the holiday? If they do, I'll be sure to post a picture.
