CHRISTMAS TREE LIGHTING SAGA
Well last night the lighting went off quite well. We had around 50 + people gathered to see the tree lit. After a countdown from 10-1 the tree was bright with red-white and blue lights. Everybody stood around eating cookies and drinking hot chocolate and talking to their friends and neighbors. Thought everything was warm and wonderful until coming home around 10:00 we noticed the tree was dark and still. OH NO! Not this quick. So today my hubby and I went up to investigate the problem and found out the timer to the tree was set backwards, meaning it went off 7:00 at night and on again at 3:00 in the morning. Suppose to be on at 3:00 in the afternoon and off again at 7:00 in the morning. We need help changing this for the timer is inside the maintenance blg. and they are closed until tomorrow. This is just the beginning of the Christmas Tree Lighting`s next four weeks. It seems we should just be able to turn those lights on and not have to do anything else until time to unplug the plug BUT for some reason or reasons it always is otherwise. Oh well it is pretty!
Its hard to believe that it is already the middle of February. Time has a way of disappearing like a blink of the eye! I guess the older you get the faster it goes. Since we are still in winter lets have some more snow! Our snow around Maine is going very fast. Since we do snowmobile some and have a camp further north in Maine where usually snowmobiling is great we are all praying for those white flakes. Vacation week is the time we go with our grandkids and their parents. We have such a great time. In the meantime I am making new things for my website lizziesraggs and thinking Spring creations. Hard to get in that mood but I`m trying. Hope to hear from you and share what your all doing to get through this season.
