Being an obsessive planner, I already have a foot in the door on 2012. In just a few days, the earth tilts to that lovely point where the days will grow longer, Christmas will come and then boom, the New Year begins and we enter the last trimester of our time here.
With all that in mind, I’ve tightened up the blog page a bit – I noticed it was getting too wordy. I blame the fact that my employment of English is stifled here, so I just let’er rip at any opportunity to play with my language of choice.
In the meantime, Dave and I trolled through two nearby tiny villages, Le Landeron and Le Neuville. The latter has taken Christmas decorating to a point not often seen on a municipal level. Obviously operating within a budget, the town’s numerous collection of Christmas trees are decorated with funky handmade ornaments made from soup cans, CDs, stuff like that. Very nice. Very unique. Very Swiss.
