Christmas Lights and a Santa, too! (well, sort of)

It was COLD this morning!! When I went to Curves this morning, the thermometer read 36 degrees. UGH! I thought I was in the south - what the heck is this? Oh, well. It's supposed to get warmer next week.

We went to The Biscuit King this morning for breakfast. We had heard about this place last year, but never found it. So, on a mission this morning, we finally found it. Just a little place on the side of the road, but as it happens with these kind of places, good food. Nothing fancy, but good. And the biscuits were the size of a man's hand, a large man.

Spent the rest of the morning and afternoon hanging out at home. This evening Dick, Pat, Randy & I took a tour of local Christmas lights; we went all the way over to Fairhope and back. I was a little disappointed in the Fairhope area 'cause not many folks had decorated their homes. We stopped at a small Italian restaurant for dinner, My Cousin Vinny's. We'd eaten there before and enjoyed it then and now.

On the way home we stopped back at that beautiful house just down the road from the park. I had thought it was a B&B, but it's not. It's someone's private home. It is so decorated -along with the lights on the house and the fence, in the yard there is a manger scene, a church building, Santa and reindeer and more. You'd think it would be too gaudy, but the yard is huge, so it's not. In a side yard are more decorations such as elves playing, a HUGE globe and "Peace on Earth" in front of it. I took some pictures and they came out okay, a little blurry, but I think good enough for you to get an idea of what it looks like.

And here's a "Santa" we think is pretty adorable!

So much for having nothing on the calendar! We ended up with a pretty good day. Tomorrow's laundry day.

Until the next time . . .
