Fast Foward

You begin the New Year, January 1, 2017,  and think you have 365 brand new days ahead… Lots and lots of time, Right?

And then it’s like someone pushed the fast forward button;   you look up and December is knocking on the door.

I can’t be the only one feeling this.

 

 

We enjoyed a lovely Thanksgiving with family and the day after…….Black Friday, nope, no shopping for me…….pumpkins were marching , gourdes was flying and leaves were falling …

Falling and being packed away in plastic tubs.  My day after Thanksgiving tradition is to pack away fall and bring on Christmas.

By the end of the day, my goal is to be 90 % finished. What hasn’t been done on Friday can usually be finished on Saturday.

But, before all of that, Christmas came to the cottage.  

Back at the cottage , not long after Halloween, I was decorating the halls.

Just little touches here and there. It doesn’t take a lot,

 

I’m saving my energy and most Christmas d├ęcor for the main house.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And while all the activity was going on inside,

this little fella was watching through the kitchen window

wondering when his dinner would be served.

 

Be patient Kitty, this won’t take long. wink wink
