Light the Halls
I am not a meticulous, details person. It's why puzzles and cross stitch don't appeal to me. I love big picture, big ideas, fun, quick details. I'm great at To Do Lists and schedules, don't get me wrong but small, repetitive tasks (like taking inventory... oh I hated taking inventory) are not my thing.
So when we put our Christmas tree up and 2/3 of it was without light I was ready to throw the decorations on and ignore it. The thing was that last year I'd done that now the dark patches seemed to be spreading. I mean, I ignored it for three days. I put ribbon and ornaments on it and tried to ignore it. But last night Husband was out for work and I decided enough was enough.
I also got a tiny bit crafty (for me) this weekend and put names on stockings for the fluffballs. They make me happy and Husband likes them too.
Here are a few other bits and pieces from the start of our decorating.
Today is my office Christmas lunch and then in the evening we have Husband's office Christmas party so it's pretty much party, party, party today. Though I feel like we might be peaking a little early on the Christmas celebrations!
