Thought for the day…

Good Morning and Welcome to Thursday, the 3rd day of October 2013.

WOW, it is less than one month until I decorate the house for CHRISTMAS.

It just dawned on me that it is that close.

Time to start counting down the days and planning for the “main event.”

I love decorating for the holidays probably almost as much or perhaps even more than the actual date.

It is the best time of the year.

It is my time of the year.

I feel alive …..

Soon it will be time to “dust off the tree” and string the lights.

Pull out all of the rubbermaid containers and start hauling all one million of them upstairs …..

Okay slight exaggeration …. perhaps only 999,999 of them.

I love going through each container and deciding what the theme will be ….

I mix and match items.

I have a mantle in this new house of mine and I love changing up the “fireplace” theme from year to year.

Well I am excited …. guess you would not have guessed that ….

Time to throw in some photos ….. one new and one old ….. MEMORIES.

Oh, how I love Christmas……


Decorating the Mantle …..

Me and my sister from a Christmas long ago .... I think about 1960...

Special Hello to: all those people out there who put their Christmas tree up right after Halloween …… HALLO ….

Always, Carol and Alvin
