I should mention something from yesterday's post. Although we put tar paper on the walls in the "new" basement, we don't actually have any damp in there. Even in the old basement that is dry. We are lucky as a lot of old basements in older homes can be damp. We did have a bit of dry rot in the old basement, but that was taken care of in the spring.
Sunday was the start of Advent at church. I enjoyed the service, though one of the hymns just went, on and on and on!!!! I am looking forward to the next few services. Also found out when the Christmas Eve services are. We have three churches in our parish, so one is at 4pm, the other at 7pm and the one at the church I attend is at 9pm. Looking forward to attending that also.
On Sunday morning we had a lovely sunrise, and I took some photos.
Accross the road is a cell phone tower, I think it may be a Rogers one. Anyhow the sun was shining off the tower and it lookes as though it was lit up:
I think I will keep the other two for Skywatch Thursday as they are really nice.
I also put up my Fibre Optic tree. Have to say I love the simplicity of that tree. Pull it out of the box, connect the parts and switch on.......couldn't be easier!! I am hoping to get our main tree up this week..............now that takes a heck of a lot longer to put up!!
The plant left of the tree is an orchid. I see I have a couple of buds on there so I am expecting flowers from it in the Spring. It was flowering when I got it for my birthday this year, see this post. The santa's each side of the tree are these ones.
As you can also see by the last photo we don't have much in the way of snow and we are forecast for rain on Tuesday, so it will be all gone that day.........
Also on Sunday I was doing a bit of sewing, I should be finished by mid week, so will show you the photos then. Hoping for a quiet week again this week.
