For the first time in quite a few years, I have my own Holiday Tree. I dug out some of my decorations, and adorned a little norfolk pine I purchased a month ago or so. Even though I know it is a family industry, for the most part, I don't want to kill a little tree to bring it into my home. I am a fan of the Yule tradition of bringing something green, and living, into the home to cheer up the cold and dark winter months. However, the last many years I have not been in a situation to afford the tradition, due to space or decoration availability, or motivation. It was late in getting set up, so may stand in place for awhile, to cheer our cold winter days, until the days grow longer and warmer. My holiday cards are going to get out late this year as well, but here are the pictures that will be featured. The first one I have posted here before, taken two winters ago when we had very heavy snow.

A successful day out shopping for those hard-to-buy for folks. Surprise! A fresh bunny!
Rich and I went to my all-time favorite hunting spot, in Byron. The field there is the most infested with rabbits of all the places I know. Sassy was flown first, and to my point of view, was not trying too hard, being a bit overweight. I had decided to put her up and get Hit Girl out, when she perched in a nearby tree, nearby to the cars, and refused to come to the lure. That's bad!! She kept looking down, so I sent Rich up and around where she was. He then flushed the bunny she saw there, and handily caught. So one bunny for Sassy.
A most excellent day . . . indeed!

I have one of her Tagua pendants with a bee on it . . . as a sponsor of their Bees and Trees project this last year. Their Kickstarter project was very successful and they were able to purchase the bee hives and many fruiting trees for the land. I enjoy participating, even in just a small way, with bringing this little patch of paradise back from destruction.
