More Christmas

Christmas Window

More images. This is one of my favorite parts, making things beautiful in the house. Wouldn't it be nice if that's all that I had to worry about? 

We had some company* last night, so much of the day was spent cleaning and tackling some larger decorating tasks (fixing the mini white lights in the living room that I love to have on all the time, and then they get burnt out - so - it was time to replace. And maybe I'll post a picture of that later.)

Anyway, that old pre-stress appeared, along with the requisite backache and bitching at everyone. I so much don't want this to happen again this season, especially on Christmas Eve. That's when we are always scrambling - taking care of last minute shite.

*Company as in mom and bro in-law and a few of the kids' friends who all gathered here for dinner before taking off for the Riverhawks game - leaving me alone! wasn't "Company" company, but still - one wants the house looking somewhat decent, ya know.

The Days Before Christmas

Muted sun on a chilly December morning -
Coffee, muffin, and chore list -
Candle lit, holiday tunes on Pandora -
And on we go!
