A Windy December Day

Every day from December 1st until Christmas I'm hanging an ornament in an outside public place as a Random Act of Christmas Cheer.

Last nigh a cold front came through the area, taking the above-average temperatures with it. Today it felt like December.  When I left the house after breakfast I underestimated just how cold and windy it was. The fleece I wore wasn't warm enough, so I had to hustle in and out of my car at every stop I made.

One of the things I had to do today is return some wall decor that hadn't looked as good on the wall as it had in the store. Coincidentally, the return was at the same place where I got my supply of ornaments just a couple of weeks ago.  I wondered--if I hung an ornament there would someone from the store would recognize it as some of their merchandise?  When I came out the wind was whipping everything around big time.  I chose a tree close to the building so the ornament wouldn't blow off.

Five years ago today: All God's Creatures


  1. It is still balmy here but is supposed to get cold then warm up again, not usual for this time of year.

  2. What a fun and thoughtful idea to put out ornaments for some Christmas cheer!
