Friday's coming...

     I was quite disappointed Monday when I drove up to Maplewood after my doctor's appointment to go to the Half-Price bookstore...and found it empty and abandoned. So I was very delighted today when I checked it out online and found they had simply moved (and I probably drove past it twice, hah hah!). I'll be back in 2011!

     I'm running behind this month, and haven't started decorating for Christmas yet, but at least I got my first week of Advent image up on my bio page. It will be fun to use all five images this year since I only got the idea to make them halfway through Advent in 2009.

     Also on the 'behind' theme, since my calendar illustration project ended up devouring nearly a week longer than I'd expected, I completely lost track of time and forgot I needed a new winter sidebar image for right here! So I'm glad I had an idea floating around from earlier, and managed to cram it in by December 2nd--not too terribly late! And it cooperated and only crashed once, which I quite appreciate!

I love the new sidebar. And I'm one of those people who prefers to decorate for Christmas during the week BEFORE Christmas. I know, I'm strange. *grin* Do you have any snow yet? I can't remember if you've said if you do or not.

Thanks! =)
I generally finish decorating the week before Christmas, though maybe faster this year since I'm not getting a tree.

I had snow--it was all white and snow on the branches and gorgeous for Thanksgiving, then this horrid rain Monday evening washed it away and turned everything into a skating rink after it froze. At least a lot of the ice is gone now, and we're supposed to get a few inches or more of fresh snow by Saturday noon. =) It has been fun seeing lots of snowmen around lately!

Very pretty winter setting. I love the horse. Is that the Defender in
horse shape?

I really like the candle avatar in your response. That candle has to be
protected by mage shields with all the snowing falling.

Thanks! I was imagining it on a windowsill where it's a little sheltered. =)
