I hope everyone had a fantastic turkey day. My child and I were sick with colds so I was having a hard time getting my usually holiday giddy on, but we did stuff ourselves sufficiently… and again and again for days after on delicious leftovers (one of my favorite things about Thanksgiving). And we spent sufficient funds on Black Friday to keep the economy afloat for another couple of weeks.
We got a 9.5er from the tree place we’ve gone to for the last 12 or so years. Only one barely made it to the BIG SHOW so we are reliable customers. That one year, we were afraid to touch the tree by Christmas. It was a bit scary. If so much as a spark touched the thing, our whole house would have gone up like a torch. Probably user error on the watering situation…
I’m working on the artificial tree I deck out in Santa and Outsider Art ornaments at the moment. At the rate I am consuming the Trader Joe’s Box Shiraz in my fridge, I might not finish tonight. It’s half lit… and so am I.
A side note:
|No, she’s not a tree… (more beautiful) and just plain goofy.|
I saw snow this afternoon for the first time this season as I turned onto Gap Creek. I was on the phone with my brother and yelled “It’s snowing” repetitively in his ear. Loudly. Luckily he gets me or he would have totally hung up.
