I guess I haven’t been “Mrs. Consistant” when it comes to posting. Not too big a deal, cuz no one really reads this blog. (Hi Mom!)
Things have been just a bit “off kilter” the past few weeks. Haven’t really been in the Christmas spirit – not being a Scrooge, just not ready to get everything out and up. But, I finally had to break down and do some decorating. See, my porch still had my fall decorations on it (hey, winter doesn’t start until December 21!!) – BUT my neighbors had all bowed to the pressure of their peers and put up Christmas decorations. Well, I held out until the bitter end. This past weekend, Barry pulled all my Christmas things down from the attic and I started the process of sorting through ornaments to see what I wanted to do this year with our tree. Last year we put the big tree up again, but this year I am back to my “pencil” tree. It doesn’t take up a ton of room and it makes the few presents we buy look like so much more!! However, not just any ornament will look good on tis tree, hence the need to sort through things.
So, I have the porch all Christmas-i-fied, and the tree in the window. The lights are all strung and the ornaments have been picked out. Tomorrow I will work on getting them placed on the tree. It’s coming along and my spirits are picking up a holiday vibe. I’ll try to get some pictures posted in the next day or so.
Just for the record, while I love Christmas I really feel that – as a believer – I should be celebrating His birth everyday…. not just a day chosen by “the church” to coincide with a paegan holiday celebration. Just my two cents worth!!
