The Neighborhood Chronicles: December in San Jacinto

It's cold! Hello December. The castle has a Christmas tree (since Thanksgiving day) but it's totally bare. Must be time to dust off those lights and take the cobwebs of the ornaments.

So the Gatekeeper was up with the rising of the sun and has decided that December shall be the month to take pictures of the place she calls home. It might even snow here in the desert. The forest beyond the empty land behind the castle is very misty and the mountain tops are glistening white. Very pretty!

Today, Lady Gatekeeper will continue to work on project cook book. The pages are looking quite stunning . . . photographs are amazing. She must also prepare to speak at the Christmas Luncheon at church on December 12th. Amazing really, one must now pay $12 in order to hear her speak. What? Hopefully, she'll have something to say. Just in case it all goes wrong, she'll have scripture, and a very loud but joyful copy of Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Christmas CD.

For now, she will find out when the lighting of the town's Christmas tree will commence and take pictures.

"Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall." (Psalm 55:22)
