Cedar and Lemon

I canceled community class tonight and did not go to work this afternoon because of the risk of storms.   The front has moved much slower than what our weather guys had predicted this morning.
This morning they were saying the worst would be coming through between 4:00 and 9:00, the time I would be on the road going from home to work to class to home.  It's just beginning to thunder and rain.  You never know with this weather stuff. It is a crap shoot.

It was 71 degrees today.  Tomorrow the highs will be in the 40's.

The house smells of cedar.  We dug up a Colorado Blue Ice that had been in our back yard a couple of year.  It's about 7 feet tall.  It's not full and bushy, but rather feathery and light.  The branches are delicate so decorations will be kept to a minimum.  I am still a little concerned about the new puppy and the tree.  He is so rambunctious.  Most of my ornaments are glass, so concern is warranted.
I will decorate it Wednesday and keep my fingers crossed.  Pictures to come.  If the house would smell this good all the time, I would be tempted to keep the tree in the greatroom along with the lemon and grapefruit trees.  By the way, the lemon is blooming. Cedar and lemon, it's a great combination.

Where ever you are tonight,  stay safe, dry and warm.
Be kind.


  1. I miss not having the scent of a fresh tree. The smell is heavenly. Lucky you !

  2. Your tree would be so nice, a fresh one would be lovely. Hope you stay safe in the storm. We have 43C here for the next few days and its hard to stay cool. Enjoy your Christmas.
