Yule

Today I'm starting with shots of homes around Centretown, decked out for Christmas.


This is actually one of the last Christmas shots I took. I totally agree with everything on the right, especially in regards to maple syrup. As to the left? Let's just say that my idea of hell is watching a Will Ferrell movie. The man makes the Ebola virus look more appealing.


These two shots are from the same office building downtown.


These are from a florist shop downtown.

    I admit it: our garden is a lot less beautifully decorated.

  13. I love Christmas decorations so these all make me smile, but I had to laugh at Will Ferrell! Yes, I agree with you on the list and maple syrup. The colorful lights really cheer me. These are pretty. Happy Christmas week.

  15. @Catarina: in some ways.

    @Rosie: that they are.

    @Jan: I don't decorate.

    @Ella: that I don't have to worry about.

    @Marleen: they do stand out.

    @Marianne: that's how it looks.

  16. @David: definitely.

    @Tom: thank you.

    @Sharon: indeed.

    @RedPat: now we're heading back into a lockdown, and in my mind an unreasonable one. Our city has had low numbers for some time, and it feels like we're being punished for things happening elsewhere. I'm frustrated.

    @Red: thank you!

    @Jeanie: I really dislike him.

    @Italiafinlandia: that seems so.

  24. Hi William there is a problem seeing your other recent posts, it is saying the page doesn't exist. Not sure if other followers are seeing this message.

    1. That was me yesterday. I had to reschedule some posts for January when I realized I had a gap, and kept making the mistake of setting them in December. Hence I had to rewrite the posts and put the photos back in a fresh post.

  26. It's lovely to see entire neighborhoods lighted.

  27. Thanks for the tip about the theme! I thought that might be it for January but wasn't sure! I don't think it is fair that Ottawa is locked down either but I also think the small stores are safer than the big box stores. I just hope the vaccine works for us all. Cheers, Pat!

    1. I hope that locally speaking this lockdown gets lifted in two weeks instead of four. I'm utterly disgusted with this decision.
