How We Do the Holidays
Olga and I managed to take a long walk yesterday morning, remedying my shameful lack of bloggable photos.
We meandered through West Hampstead and Cricklewood, pausing at Cricklewood Millennium Green to check out the graffiti wall...
...and the sheep on nearby Cricklewood Lane, garlanded for the holidays.
Then we walked up to the Clitterhouse Playing Fields, where there were numerous football games or practices or something going on. We walked to the far side of the playing fields and back, passing several groups of crows...
...one of whom was very taken with this beer can. (Shiny, I guess.)
Back at Fortune Green we paused by the community Christmas tree, which is apparently a new thing this year. There was an article in the paper about the lights being sabotaged (scandalous, and also, why?!) but they seem to be in good working order now.
Olga was annoyed at my picture-taking and barking her frustration.
Finally, while Dave went off to help out with the fifth school music concert of the season (and still two more to go!), I did some minimalist holiday decorating. I strung lights on the avocado, like we did last year, and I hung ornaments from our aloe on a nearby windowsill. That's as good as it's going to get, I'm afraid.
