Dec 22 – I finally put some lights up outside.  Just this one strand, as there was 2 1/2 inches of ice along the eaves so I couldn’t put any there.  I had forgotten that David put a plug in the eaves for me – technically for the chickens’ heated water, but also for holiday lights.  There’s even a switch in the front entry so I can turn them off and on.  I couldn’t resist decorating Skully for some reason.  It just worked for me.

I especially enjoy the glowing eyes.
