Weather and Wonders
Last Wednesday the tree raising ceremony of bringing the huge Christmas tree into the Biltmore House was exciting and my first time to experience the ceremony. We made plans to be up early, breakfast early and be early for the first shuttle of the morning from the Inn to the House. Many had the early morning theme, but we actually accomplished our goals. We had front row views.
Dena and I are alike in many ways but there are just as many opposite likes between us. Give me a cold room, she'd rather have a warm room and by warm I mean hot but of course that is just my opinion. Our taste in TV shows are not even very much alike. She was all a twitter over the CMA TV show on Wednesday and a program on Monday, fifteen CW songs that changed the world or something like that. I fell asleep at song 13. Give me a Simpson marathon or Dance Moms or Southern Justice or Smoky Mountain Money.... The ironic happening on Wednesday night, Dena had CNN on and it was about 8:10 pm. My quandary; tell her she is missing the beginning of the CMA show or let her turn the channel at 9:00 and be majorly upset. The Eastern Time Zone thing can throw you off... I decided to do the right thing and mention she might be missing her show...I watched more of it than I thought I would but alas sleep called out to me and I was gone.
If anyone decides to go to the tree raising, the best bet is to stay at the Inn and take a shuttle because we heard the line to get into the estate was backed up all the way to I 40 and the people in the cars missed the whole thing.
