Yesterday, we went to Schwarz Fish Company in Sheboygan, Wisconsin – the Wholesale Location this time. Then a drive to see the decorations and lights in the area. Karl observed that already the days are a little longer. Beautiful to watch the natural light change. All beautiful, whether someone created a grand display of lights, or a simple wreath.
Winter drive holiday lights in Sheboygan and small towns
a few daylilies and hosta flowers plants begin to rest
red geranium blooms in the garden and still grows
This is the geranium we bought from Windmill Gardens in Cedar Grove; small red geranium is our post from May 13, 2021. I looked at their Facebook page and they are “Closed for the Season.” We enjoy the small businesses in our area, along with the large stores. Grateful for all.

I have been watching PBS Food Shows. This week I watched Lidia Celebrates America: The Return of the Artisans. They spoke of the time and dedication it takes to learn, and the five senses were mentioned – as we also think about when creating poems. There is a lot of work that takes place before an art feels more intuitive. I like seeing so many artisans and art forms honored.
We also have enjoyed a few meals at Casa Imelda, a new restaurant in Cedar Grove, Wisconsin. Wonderful food and service.
We have so much in common, and so much to learn.
Many memories – and everyday life. Christmas today in a simple way.
