The weekend is continuing to be wonderful in every way. I woke up at 4:00 am this morning and couldn’t get back to sleep and so I went ahead and got up. I had some really lovely quiet time and learned how to pray the Anglican prayer beads that a friend gave me last year.
Once the hubby got up we had a lovely lazy morning. We finally managed to get ourselves together by lunch and head out to the Elgin tree farm to find our special Christmas tree. It has become a yearly tradition. You drive out to the middle of nowhere until you see the white tree farm truck and then turn left. My husband and I love the truck. Someday we want to have one just like it. Then you wind through a bunch of country roads and when you come around the corner you see a bunch of cars, cute buildings, and a little farm.
Tractors pulling wagons with hay bales will take you out to where the trees are being cut. They plant different sections each year and in several years the trees are big enough to cut.
We chose to walk for the first time because there were quite a few families waiting on the hay ride. It was a very pleasant 60° and sunny. We even found a tree very quickly. We usually take a long time looking to find one with the right shape, density of branches, and with pine cones.
