. . . thou shalt not covet . . .

. . . thy neighbor's house . . .
{exodus 20:17}
. . . remember my "nosy" door? . . .
. . . well, here's me today . . .
. . . stealthily taking pictures
through its shutters . . .

. . . my neighbors
soon will be celebrating
a family wedding . . .

. . . they've been
working super hard
on their yard/house . . .

. . . sprucing up/pruning . . .
. . . building planters/planting in them. . .
. . . installing lots of electrical stuff/painting . . .
. . . etc/etc/etc . . .

. . . and i've been really happy for them . . .
. . . BUT . . .
. . . they are so lucky you guys . . .
. . . they already have
their brand new christmas lights up . . .

. . . all the way around the house . . .
. . . front, back, sides, upstairs . . .
. . . every peak and gable . . .
. . . and, fine . . .
. . . i'll admit it . . .

. . . i'm way jealous . . .

Hey...I covet both of your homes...well most of the homes in your neighborhood and I covet anybody that has winter grass...Phillip doesn't see the need...it is lookin' mighty festive over there.
