Christmas Lights Are Up!

We had a weird spell of warm weather last Sunday. We took the time to winterize the house and put up the Christmas lights. It was either that or wait until the more appropriate time (late November/early December) and FREEZE.

Ian did the pole + clips method again. There was much cursing, throwing, and murderous looks... until I made an offhand observation about the clips regarding their shape and how the trick must be to get them in a specific spot on the gutter. Ian tried a new technique and the clips snapped right on.  I'm pretty sure he wished I had made my offhand observation an hour earlier when he was throwing the pole to the ground in frustration*.

*Short note for next year - We need a new pole as it is now bent. :|
