From Sunshine to Mall


Poinsettia Tree Columbia Mall
Columbia, MD
December 26, 2018
What a glorious December day yesterday turned out to be. The sun shone bright and I could feel its warmth on my face.  

It was cold in the shaded areas as Chris and I walked the dogs yesterday, but we still enjoyed being outdoors and not being rained or snowed upon. 

Despite the clear weather, however, it was very cool in the shade and after a time our hands got cold. So, we decided to head off to the mall and take care of a return or two. I realized that I had not actually been in the Columbia Mall since the beginning of the Christmas season. It was good to be in the mall with the other shoppers. Chris did an amazing job of navigating the return line at Macy's and then we were off into the main part of the mall. I love the mall because of all of the Poke stops--yes, I play Pokemon Go all of the time. It is a great way to pass the time. 

Most importantly, I was able to snap my annual image of the mall's poinsettia tree. I love the poinsettia tree. It is one of the most creative Christmas decorations that I can think of and it is the signature decoration of the Columbia Mall. 

Now I am ready for Spring. Oops, there is still most of Winter to get through.
