Now that the Thanksgiving dishes are cleaned and fall decorations are put away, it was time to go under the stairs and pull out Christmas items. That is after a bit of time out in the Black Friday crowds — fortunately, our town is so small that the crowds were just a ripple — although we waited in line for 40 minutes at Kohls — fortunately we were able to snag a new vacuum for the house at a great price and get home in time for lunch. After a nice lunch of 20 bean soup and some homemade bread, we started putting up the tree in the living room.
By the end of the night the tree was fully decorated, wreath was up on the door and the small table top tree was up and decorated in the bedroom. Tonight we are sitting with the glow of the tree lights enjoying the mood. May you all have a wonderful holiday season.
