It was really, really cold. One year, we had snow, which was really pretty. This year, though, just cold. And very windy.

It amazes me how much water a tree will take in for the first several days after it's been cut. I find myself under the tree twice a day refilling it. An Olympic event, really. (OK OK so it's really more like the Senior Olympics... but none of us are getting any younger, are we?)
