You know Christmas is coming when....

....well, could the outside temperature be used as a sign?  Our temperatures have been more like spring than the approaching winter season!  Our high temperatures have been near 70 degrees this past week-end!  The prediction, though, is for cooler temperatures this week.

This is actually one sign that Christmas is coming.

When the fruit sold by the local high school band arrives, we know that Christmas will soon follow!

When this appears........

The Christmas Clown    

                                                             ............we know Christmas will soon follow!

When this tree makes its appearance, we know Christmas will soon follow!  

Country Man and the team he was with on the mission trip this past week returned around midnight Saturday night.  Unfortunately, he isn't feeling very well.  That seems to be the case with the others, too.  Hopefully, Immodium and Gatorade will be a help toward feeling improved. 

I hope this will be a good Monday for you, setting the tone for a good week ahead!

Oh, I have heard from Lisa who won the giveaway, and the calendar is on its way to her!

Thank you for reading.  I really appreciate your comments.


  1. It certainly looks as if Christmas is on its way to your house! Sorry to hear that Country Man is having some digestive disturbances, but he and the others should snap out of it quickly. I'm sure Country Girl is taking excellent care of him. Have a wonderful day! :-) It's feeling a bit more seasonal already after those thunderstorms we had early this morning!

  2. I'm ready for Christmas myself. I loved getting the fruit back in the day when my kids were in High School. Sorry Country Man is feeling poorly! Hope you have a great week! Hugs, Linda

  3. Yes this weather has caused my orange trees to think it is spring. Green fruit and blooms.
    It smells very pretty though.
    I hope your SIL feels better. Poor guy.
    It looks like you are just getting ready for Christmas day by day. Have a wonderful week.

  4. It is looking a lot more like Christmas everywhere!

  5. That Christmas clown looks a bit scary to me. : )

  6. Hope Country Man feels better soon!

  7. Hi Nellie....Yup, signs of Christmas are all over the place. It's wonderful, isn't it?

    You know what? It's been unseasonably warm here, too, and snow and a deep drop in temps is predicted.

    Take care and thanks for all the visits and comments. Susan

  8. Looks like Christmas is coming to your house. I hope you had a wonderful Monday, Nellie. It was a busy one here- xo Diana

  9. I love all the build up to Christmas! My daughter and daughter in love always decorate on the first Dec. by the time Christmas arrives their young ones are on high doh!
    Hope this will be a good one for you. Joan

  10. Oh Oh! Sounds as if they consumed some "bad" food, along the way. -sighhhhhhhhhhh- What a happening, at Christmas Time. -pout-

    My husband would love it, if HS kids sold oranges! :-) Our "grand" next door, was selling pointsettas. (spelling?????????)
