Touch of Grey will, well, touch upon the rainbow that is life. Good music, good times, and good friends combine to make all the splendid colors. Touch of Grey will celebrate this beautiful rainbow.

I haven't dropped off the face of the earth. Much too busy for that. In fact, if I stay this busy always, the way I figure it, I won't have time to die either. Wouldn't that be nice?

We are slowly transitioning between fall and Christmas. The front of the house looks kind of funky, what with Santa Claus and two snowmen sharing our brick ledge along with still remarkably preserved pumpkins and gourds. The fall wreaths are still hanging on the doors, while a poinsettia garland drapes our front door. Pretty split-personality, actually. But little by little, we will get there.

The tree base is in the living room, just waiting for the tree to be put in it as it is every year, and so I must remind myself to put away the pilgrim figurine and scarecrow candle holder soon.

Has anyone felt as disjointed as I feel this holiday? Does anyone experience this duality of decorations, this schizophrenic seasonal malady which I seem to be going through?

At least dad is still bringing over the totes containing Christmas decor from his garage. He is really taking the lead this year trying to get things up such as lights. I get the feeling he is more excited about Christmas this year than I am. And that's a good thing. I'm glad to see him in the groove.

But I swear, if I hear "White Christmas" one more time........

At least it is finally December and the Christmas songs are appropriate. I do hate hearing them in the early Fall, though.

Hubby has decorated outside and we are trying to get the spirit inside.

I used to wear decorated shirts every day to work in December and then they would be packed away for another year. These days, my usual garbs are not seasonal.

Missed seeing your posts, but glad to know that you're okay.

Good to hear from you, Ferret. Right now, the tree has been put up; haven't decorated it yet, but the young kitties find it all fascinating (a blog on our little ones to come soon) and think it's their own personal treehouse.

I hope you, hubby, daughter, and little grandlove have a wonderful Christmas!
