It’s Christmas Week!

We’re all excited about the snow, right?? I guess it’s less exciting if you have to travel or have loved ones who have to travel. I just have to travel cross town.

When I took the picture below of a bunch of Christmas trees on the stairs my first thought was, ‘how do the people get in and out of their house?’ The basement entrance, of course. Later I noticed something pretty in the window. Or is that a reflection? It all looks kinda magical though. This is Charles Street, which is beautiful to begin with, and the trees here all have lights and it looks old-world glamourous inside.

I’m going caroling at a friends house this afternoon, but then I have another caroling opportunity tonight at an Irish bar all the way back on the east side (I live very far west). It would mean walking all the way east, then all the way back home in the snow, then all the way back east in the snow and once again all the way back west in the snow. It’s insane.

The thing is, what could be more fun than caroling at an Irish bar … in the snow? And it’s for charity.
