Fall decorations (which includes Halloween and Thanksgiving) are down, packed and stored in the shed.
This means time to start the Christmas decorations. Since my sweet man is recovering from his total knee replacement he can not help me this year. When daughter Holly and her family were here yesterday I got my wonderful son-in-law to help me move all the boxes and totes marked "Christmas" from the storage shed to the garage. I have full access to the huge work table so I can spread out all the items to my heart's content.
Outside decorating will be at the minimum this year...pretty much what I can reach with both feet on the ground. We certainly don't need two people crippling around at this holiday time.
As for the inside ~ the tree is up and decorated...may do some tweaking on it in time...did not change anything from last year....everything was new then so I am still real pleased with the looks of it. I am changing out the mantel this year...have not fully decided how or what I am doing just yet. One thing though, the wreath that I have put up there the last 12 years will not go there...I still like it...but am tired of it in the same location.
Hopefully, if I don't get too tired of handling the stuff I can get rid of some things that I no longer care to use in the decorating scheme. I have been known to just stick them back in the totes thinking I will use them the next year...then this repeats itself for several years...so now it time for those items to find a new home.
If anything turns out exceptionally well, I will take a picture and post it. I don't think I have anything new this year...but am thinking about putting things in different places...just to make it more interesting.
This will be the second Sunday we have missed church...but just don't think Mr. Limpy Leon is ready for that much movement yet or sitting up that long either. Next Sunday he should be more mobile and we can attend.
You all take care, post pictures of your Christmas decorating...always enjoy seeing how other people do their tree, mantle, etc.
