Some years there are a lot of decorations at my house. Some years there aren’t….this is one of those years. But not to worry as there is a LOT of happy and grateful holiday spirit floating around nevertheless!
The only decoration I have this year is the little lighted mercury glass tree (shown above). It’s really sweet, and as it gets dark so early now, I have it on all day. And the good news is it will be easy to put away the holiday decorations this year!
The hubby has been spending all of his time taking care of me as I recover from surgery (which is going well and all is good!). So the last thing I was going to ask him to do was to take all the decorations out of the shed. It is our custom to pick up a special live (in a pot) Christmas tree dug out of the ground (and then after the holiday plant it on our property); but that will have to wait until next year.
I’m thankful for all those who have supported me along my journey this year. A new job, new friends, old friends, quilting customers, family, neighbors….and, of course, lately all my “hipster sisters!”
Merry Christmas to you all!
PS. And here are the cookies I would have made for you had I actually been able to stand and bake! But the good news is that these are totally NO CALORIE and you can look at them as much as you like! Ha! Or should I say, “ho, ho, ho!” Enjoy. (Or is that too “Grinchy?”)
