Time is moving on whether I like it or not. I thought I would be further along in my decorating than I am, but I just am not. I took a ride out on the gator with a couple of the dogs to gather some pine greens and natural looking things to hang around. Gracie and Potter (2 of the Jack Russell's) love to jump in and jump back out always on a scent and a few deep holes to leave behind. I love gallivanting around in the woods after all the leaves have fallen. You find all kinds of pods and gumballs, nuts and things that have turned a natural organic, earthy color. Love to add these with bay leaves and berries to make my own little bowl of potpourri.
I bought a Norfolk Island Pine to put in the sun room. It is very different from the Frasier Fur from the mountains. The Norfolk Island's boughs are feathery, more ornamental looking. The larger tree (Frasier Fur) from the mountains is in the living room. It's hard for me to get any good pictures for you with this little point and shoot camera. I had asked Santa about a new camera .... and I'm really trying to be a very good girl!! (It's taking a whole lot of effort, trust me).
This little tree actually stands a little over 5 ft. It is decorated with all these little forest critters ~ deer, opossum, skunk, fox, etc.
When I opened up my Christmas tubs, it was like being a kid again. There were all these things I had purchased the day after Christmas last year from all the sales. What possesses me to go to these sales, I have no idea. I certainly don't need anymore decorations. I told one of my daughters to please come get whatever she wants. Presently, the only thing on the big tree are the little white twinkling lights and I think I like it like that. It looks great at night, but WOW in the daytime, it looks like just a green tree in the corner. Hubs keeps asking "When you gonna decorate that tree"?
Let's see honey bunny - I'm like, uh.... a little tired when I get home and maybe after I do the dog shuffle and fix some home cookin', I'll get around to that tree!
Oh yes sir-e, its a wonderful time of the year.
It was 70 degrees here today, BUT the Canadian air is blowing down and temps are to drop drastically tomorrow into the 30's tomorrow night. What a change!!
Anyone invited to any parties or are you having a party? I need some ideas - New Year's is right around the corner.
Gotta scoot friends - Christmas tree is calling for attention - Later, Debi
