Here's to Hoping

There's 11 days left in November and then the "official" countdown to Christmas begins :) I've already purchased a chocolate advent calendar for Iz (just like last year) and once we get through Thanksgiving we'll drag out the totes of decorations and get this place ready for the big day! I got a magazine in the mail yesterday that included "12 Days of Christmas Cookies" and that's in my plans now too (more on that another day). With a future filled with Christmas cheer and TONS of yummy baked goods I have a plan...

The next time I see someone in the area working in a bucket truck I'm going to beg and plead for them to come to my house and get down this branch:

It came off the top of the tree over a year ago and has been precariously perched over the turn-a-round of our driveway ever since. I might be wrong but I just have a *feeling* about that branch. A feeling that THIS is the winter it's going to come down. A feeling that, when it does come down, it will be on a day when there are people here and parked directly under it, naturally.

So. I'm going to plead. I don't know - if I worked in a bucket truck and some crazy lady came to me with promises of hot coffee and baked goods in exchange for getting a branch down I would take her up on it! What do you think?

Yeah, I think I'm outta luck....but, here's to hoping!
