Time to start to enjoy Christmas.
1. Cards are addressed - need to buy stamps - I can put a check in the mail box with order form and it will have them in the next day or so...don't have to stand in line at post office...a blessing right there.
2. Menu is pretty well planned - ham is taking the staring role. Purchased it when it was on sale before Thanksgiving - money saved... can be spent on more fun things.
All decorating is completed with the exception of some tweaking here and there...will be showing my home in the next few days - am thinking about doing a post each day...will have to wait and see how things progress...by posting each day it will seem like we are having daily conversations - instead of saving it all up for a week or so...then trying to cram everything into one.
The chandelier that hangs above my dining room table has not changed much during the last several years. I like the way it looks and until I come up with something better I suppose it was stay this way.
> It seems like this year I have been adding more white to my usual red, green and gold. As much as I love blue in my home decorating I am not fond of blue and silver at Christmas time. Well, until this year - only have two items that fall in that color scheme so am putting them in the bathroom...a bell and a snowman and snow woman..small ones - really not large enough to form a vignette...I just have them sitting on my jewelry box.
Will probably show more of my home as the days count down to the big day. The washer bell just went off - so that means from washer to dryer...my duties call.
What are you thankful for - right this minute? Me, my washer and dryer...the temp is in the lower 20's!
