Yesterday I found a few.
There are 92 displays of Dickens characters that line the main street of this small tourist spot.
In the center of town a lovely courthouse stands. For the coming holiday season the villagers had decorated it with dancing lights and choreographed it with Christmas music. Amazing site to see.
They begin this show at 5:30 pm and it goes until 10:00 pm every evening from November 1st until Jan 3rd.
Horse drawn carriage rides are available as well as trolley tours and self guided ones. A few quaint shops are open that boast unique gift ideas for someone's Christmas list. Several good eating spots are located along the main street.
It is certainly a lovely place to visit and find an "Ah Moment!"
Hope all of you will find a couple of "Ah Moments" during this busy season of the year.

Warmer days would be nice. The calendar says winter is not to arrive until Dec. 21st. Maybe there was a mistake! Perhaps it will get fixed soon!
For those who are encountering winter early - stay warm!

Writing down things to be thankful for each day keeps me focused on blessings that I might miss. Here are a few of mine today.
Being able to create...
Maybe you are keeping a list too. Hope you will share.
"I will give thanks to the Lord because of his righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High." Psalm 7:17 (NIV)

With the calendar turning to November I am making some notations.
The landscape has changed but there are still blue skies with soft puffy clouds...
A turkey vulture flying high...
ground cherries waiting to be picked
pink cosmos blooming in spite of the chilly air...
