End of year update

Finally, I’m getting to posting about our natural Christmas tree and its decorations in keeping with the homesteading tradition as well a few other things we did before 2015 got here. Below is our tree. I made popcorn garland (only 2 strings) but it was still appropriate, and I used the pine and spruce cones.

I also used ornaments we purchased for our wedding 9 years ago – plastic- but since I’m not going to throw them out and they are in good condition we use them. As of now, we will no longer be buying any more decorations for Christmas.ย 2014christmas tree

Between Christmas and New Year’s Eve we had good weather so we did a lot of walking and some dog sledding on our property. ย Below is me and 3 of our 6 dogs. I was warming myself up before I hooked up the dogs.
