the tree in the square

thursday, november 29th:

the morning photo of the day:

the uptown square tree, as i walked to work this morning…

the late aft/early eve photo of the day:

same tree as i exited the store…at only 5 pm! looked (and felt!) like 8 pm!

where have you seen an awesome christmas tree, so far this year? would you believe, the walmart at bridgeport and weber has a great one, just inside the door?! true!

will you put up lights at your home? touring neighbourhoods to see lights, and going through waterloo park for the wonders of winter display are among my favourite christmas activities! (locals, the wat park lights will go on this weekend!).


the media is abuzz with this r.a.o.k. story, today. i first saw it on the news this morning, then a friend re-posted it on fb, too. it’s always heartwarming to hear about a good deed, but it’s especially so as we head into the chrismas/holiday season: photo of NYPD officer giving boots to homeless man in times square sparks online sensation

    That tree is really pretty. I haven’t seen any trees yet, although I’m starting to notice lights up. Our Christmas tree has lights, but we don’t do anything outside.

    How fun to see the tree before and after like that! We are going to see Elf in NYC Sunday so hope to stop by and see the Rockefeller tree. It’s always crowded but that’s part of the whole experience.

    What a wonderful surprise to finish off your day, Cathy! Love it when the decorations go on. Neat that you get to pass it on the way to work each day!

      the city really did a great job with that tree, fran – they brought out a ladder truck to get right to the very top. when the lights are on, it’s SO pretty!
