I thought I could do it. I planned to do it.
I was going to. ……..
wait until after Thanksgiving to start decorating for Christmas.
But I couldn’t wait. So now I’m going to….…. but just a little bit.
Not all the decorations will be up on the inside and certainly none
outside until after Thanksgiving.
The bedrooms and office will have a touch of Christmas now. Our Thanksgiving
guests don’t normally see those rooms anyway.
And it will satisfy my need to have a little Christmas now.
I like to drive myself insane by changing the decorating designs every year.
My decorations are seldom repeated in the same way from year to year.
It’s not that I buy new things, I just rearrange what I have to different location.
Example: Sometimes the Byer’s Carolers are on the mantel and sometimes they are on the chest in the hallway.
They have been on top of the piano singing their hearts out.
So even putting up a little Christmas requires hours and hours of thought.
Where oh where do the silver reindeer want to be displayed this year?
Then I have to rummage through all the boxes to find the things I want to use.
And put aside the other decorations until later.
Christmas decorations just have to include Peppermint.
A peppermint theme bedroom this year?…. complete with a quickly painted
watercolor to frame.
Not sure where this cute little snowman will end up.
Another Christmas watercolor.
Ok I feel better now…………….Got my little bit of Christmas fix.
