The biggest decision this year was whether or not to decorate and put up Christmas lights. Call us Scrooge, but it's a real hassle, and we're getting lazy. All that work to put up lights just to take them down again a few weeks later. So this year I put up our little tree in the back window and that's it. There were a few suggestions on Facebook on how to attach lights to a fifth wheel, and for a while I was thinking about trying them. But then the feeling went away. :)
While we were sitting outside this little bird decided to clean up a bit. I couldn't get pic with him looking at me, but the colors were pretty and he was little. I have no idea what kind it is. He flew off with a female when he was done pruning. The female was a lot darker in color.
We saw this clock on the side of an RV while on one of our walks. A nice idea, but we're not that interested in knowing what time it is anymore. :)
Our church is decorated for Christmas. It's so pretty so I took a picture to share.
When I got up this morning we had a group of Sandhill Cranes right outside our window. They're so stately and proud looking birds. They prance around and act like they own the place.
My sister Doris and her hubby Herm recently bought a park model home in Okeechobee and are down for the winter months. They came up to see us today and brought their friend Judy with them. We took them to the Jacaranda Hotel for lunch. It's a beautiful 1920's-era hotel in downtown Avon Park, and one of our favorite places to eat.

The main lobby is beautifully decorated for Christmas.
After lunch we took them on a driving tour around Sebring, then back to our home for more chatting. Doris, Judy and I are wine lovers, so we sampled a bottle of wine from a local winery while we visited.
It was rainy most of the afternoon so they left to get home before it got too late. We loved their visit and had a great time. We can't wait to see them again when we pay them a return visit to their home in Okeechobee.
Tonight we went to the clubhouse for our twice-weekly card games.
See you in a few days.
