And then, as the dark was drawing down on Thanksgiving Day – the energy shifted – and I was so ready to start putting up Christmas that I could not resist! : > and so it began…. now it is the Saturday after Thanksgiving, late evening – and I am nearly, but not quite, done. All except the tree, which won’t got up for a few more days.
I am still waiting on the arrival of the front door swag, which a neighborhood church sells to support the help it gives to the homeless and hapless in our community. And I will be buying the pine roping early in the week, plus the poinsettias, which are so great and so cheap at one of our fruit and vegetable vendors. So bits and pieces still to be done – but Christmas is well on its way!
