...Christmas lights and The Nutcracker

My friend John is here. He scored tickets to the Nutcracker in Portland for tomorrow night and invited me to go along. Yippee! I've never seen it in person, and only bits and pieces on TV.

Tonight we went out to eat, then, since it was still early, I suggested we wander through the Festival of Lights at the Fairground. Wander?? At 17 degrees F it was more like a power walk! Whose great idea was this??? But...silly ideas make for great memories, and we got some fun pictures. And, that cup of tea once we got inside was even more welcome than if we'd come straight home!

What fun to see the lights and I am so pleased you're going to see The Nutcracker in person. I know you will love it. My friend Tag posted about his experiences in stagecraft regarding the Nutcracker today. You might enjoy this: Going Down Hill: The Nutcracker... Sweet!#links

It's good to hear you and John are enjoying one another's company.

Limes, it was fun to go to the city with my friend, get dressed up, and go to the ballet for the very first time. Thanks for the link to Tag's post. I enjoyed the behind-the-scenes perspective.
