No, they don’t always go together. Just today. You see, the rains have finally returned to the Serengeti!! OK, maybe not. But they have returned to Portland, along with a noticeable drop in temperature. Oh, it is glorious!
THIS MAKES ME HAPPY!
Why Christmas lights, you ask? Well, I hauled them out today since I’m lending them to a friend for his wedding. This also makes me happy, knowing my friend has found his someone and will be joining his life with hers next month.
And, for the first time in many years, seeing those lights and the other decorations I have stored away has caused a bit of Christmas spirit to well up. I might even do things up a little this year. We’ll see. 🙂
