Took down the outdoor Christmas lights today. I wasn't too elaborate this year....my Little Voice said "yeah, we're not going nuts with this, right?".....I agreed....and just put lights on the shrubs. Lights, as it would turn out, would not bee seen because of the 4 feet of snow we got in early December that would not melt, until yesterday and today, as it's been in the 50's.
Moral of the story... Listen to your Little Voice
