Backyard Trail

With the first snow fall, Christina and I walked the trail we will use in the backyard. I used the same path when putting up the holiday decorations in the backyard. It was more steps. Many more steps, but it will help on later days to prep the trails.

I also unpacked the sprayers for coloring the trails. Figured now was better than when I want to use them. I usually end up coloring the snow on Friday night after Christina goes to bed. Fridays are always a late night for us to get home so I generally do not start until after 23:00. It takes me about two hours to color the trails. That is one gallon every fifteen minutes including mixing. I don't think that is too bad.

I wait as long as possible to color the trail. Just in case it snows and would then cover all my work. Ah, the weather.

Outdoor Holiday decorations

This year I decided to put up the outdoor decorations. We have three of the blow up decorations. Of course I would pick a cold and windy day to attempt to put them up. I was successful; however, I think I put a rush on getting sick this year.

Along with the decorations, I opted to be creative with the extension cords. I wanted them to be functional and out of the way for our trails in the back yard. With some work and swapping this cord for that, I think a pat on the back is called for.

As I fixed the switch/outlet this past summer, the ease of one flip to turn them all on is nice.

Holiday Decorations

I put the Christmas tree up the other week. Managed to get the lights on also. Both white and colored strings of lights. I also went with the over bright tree topper light ball.

I did not get the decorations put on. Christina was willing to help put the decorations on. I put her on my shoulder and assisted her hanging the ornaments.

Whew. Christina is one strong little girl. She found it humorous to squirm while on my shoulders. She had fun which makes it worth while. Her excitement led to increased tone making her all the stronger. It will not be long and I will need to come up with a different game plan to hold her up.

More and more Christmas decorations have been added to the house. About done. I spaced it out a little. Something different for Christina to spot and gives me more time so not so rushed. Being too busy leads to getting sick.
