One Thousand Six Hundred and Fifty Lights*
* With the exception of the short section on the small gable that is not lighting up for whatever reason.
That's what I did all weekend. In the cold east wind. Slightly hungover from the irish session the night before. Wearing no gloves.
This is the first Christmas season to hang icicle lights from the gables. I have always wanted to, especially after getting the attic remodel completed. I think a farmhouse looks particularly good with the icicle lights. Unfortunately, I ran out so I wasn't able to get the north gable (or balcony) section completed. Later I was able to find some more lights, though cheaper, I think they'll do the trick. Now, I just have to find the time and the energy - preferably at the same moment.
