A Couple of Days Before Christmas

I drove further south
Where the byway's not scenic and the staggering quantity of traffic freaks me the hell out.

The kitties were made comfy in the bigger house next door
Hopefully they'll catch any mices in there while they are trapped inside and a bit bored.

Further north all the gardens are near empty beds
Where is stays a bit warmer are camellia blossoms instead.

The chore for tomorrow with a clunk and a clatter
Is to sort through a garage full of tools, keeping only those that really matter.

For now it is the computer that is getting attention, trying to make it simple and painless and easy to use.
Then it is time for another lesson and signing her up for her first email address, woo hoo.

Oranges are glowing up high in the air.
I may reach up and grab some just cause I'm here.

But after a long day of driving, I must first say goodnight.
Christmas is coming, some rest first will feel right.

Rest for now dear friend. The joyous time is near. Hope you find some treasures.
Have a wonderful Holiday Season with all.

You may be interested to know that the new issue of the Old House Journal (dated March 2012, but arrived today) has a nice article on Asheville. Also want to wish you a very happy Christmas with your family and to say I appreciate your dedication to writing on your blog. Thank you, so much! Hope the kitties won’t get too bored or be mad at you when you return home. As Lola said, I hope you get some rest.

Love the poem! You are a man of many talents. Those camellias and oranges are a needed color burst up here in the grays and browns. A very Merry Christmas to you and good luck to your mom in her adventures in cyberspace!

And to all a good night. It looks like you are going to be having lots of fun and getting plenty of vitamin C.

Merry Christmas.
