It is the start of the Christmas season  when you see this in the OFM Dining Room.

Yep, pumpkin pie, hot chocolate, a Christmas candle and of course the computer where the blog happens and Christmas shopping is accomplished.

We even hit the post office this morning to get stamps for mailing OFM art modified Christmas cards to folks. That will take a bit of time to get into the mail but it will be fun. 

To keep up the pace the OFM started another page in the coloring book using oil pastels. They are proving to be a significant challenge for him. But it will happen in some fashion.  The month long winter cold wet season of Rockport Tx is approaching and we expect to spend a lot of time in the future month or so visiting with art materials and hot chocolate. That sounds like fun. One year it even went below 40F for a few hours.

Naturally we had to stop down at the marina to see what is happening. The big lighted Christmas tree and decorations event is tonight and tomorrow night.  There is lots of vehicles down there running around in circles looking at the nice event. We plan to not be there.

One boat in the marina had some bright decorations on board. Sierra got us parked safely and the OFM walked back to the boat to grab a picture or two. Here is what you see normally.

And here is what a little zoom on the camera gave us to enjoy.

There is no telling what else will be happening to the boats for decorations, but we will attempt to keep everyone updated on the festivities.  By the way, NO fish were biting.

And now we are planning on some good rest tonight for a full recovery from the migraine so we can go nuts trying to have tooooo much fun tomorrow.


  1. We both enjoy the Pumpkin Pie but even more since it is served on Correll China identical to our own.
    Checking the marina for Flying Pigs is a great way of having tooooo much fun.
    Be Safe from the Rain and Enjoy creating your art.

    It's about time

  2. Good title. I expected to hear about something that might have happened.
    Any idea if the boat's name is being used literaly?
    Have fun today!

    1. I have no idea of what the boats name is. The stern is sticking out where I cannot see it.
