|Even as the leaves yellow and fall there |
are still apples to be cleaned up
We've been hitting up craft fairs and stores for several weeks now and many presents are on their way west. Normally I wouldn't decorate our house this early but I have pulled out a few bits and pieces as I wrapped presents to get me in the mood.
Speaking of decorating, the old Canoe Cove Schoolhouse has been dressed up in its finest this past week for the Canoe Cove Christmas House Tour which will take place this Friday, December 2, 2011 from 6:30 - 9 pm. Four homes will be opened up for viewing as well as the School House which will feature an assortment of Christmas treats, apple cider and a door prize. Any locals looking for tickets to this event can contact myself or visit the Canoe Cove website.
No time to rest after the House Tour as it is followed the following weekend by a Live Nativity. Every year Jenkins farm puts up a fantastic display of christmas lights and this year they decided to expand and include actors, a choir and animals including cows, horses, donkeys and llamas. Yours truly will be singing in the choir so I've been exercising my rusty pipes in preparation. More details can be found here.
And if that isn't enough the annual Canoe Cove Christmas Concert will be held December 17 at the Old School House.
It's a full schedule of events here on the Corner, I just hope I have energy enough to keep up with it all. Perhaps the nanaimo bars cooling in the refrigerator will help give me an added sugar boost?
