I am very proud of myself this afternoon! Lee was so helpful in stringing up the lights on the Christmas tree last night while I went to my tennis team Christmas party. He did such a good job, and without my
constant interference help, he was able to put 2 more strands of lights on this year’s tree than last year’s.
But then somehow this morning, the lights mysteriously went out. Now, I’m not an electrical sleuth, but I am on a mission to massacre my to-do list today, and I couldn’t go forward until I was sure the lights were working. So I fixed it. I really did. And it involved very complicated things. Things that deserve praise and perhaps brownies.
So next on my to-do list was to put hooks on all of our new gold ball ornaments and hang them on the tree. After my friend Jill [who is Jewish] professed her love of the gold Christmas tree here, I decided to give it a go, because, you know, yay Israel and all.
Lee and I also would like to share some of our favorite Christmas ornaments with you. We love collecting Christmas ornaments and taking them out every year to remember where they came from and what our family was like when we got them. So I’ll post some of these whenever I get the chance. Mary Bullock is taking a great nap today [oooh hope I didn’t jinx it] so I’ll start now.
More soonish. I’m going to go try to mark some more items off of my list!
