Time To Think , Christmas.....

   Did not get to do crafts yesterday.  Everyone either watched a movie that was on tv or played Ping-Pong.  We all had a beautiful day together. Ate plenty, talked and laughed.  One game of cards.  Then my daughters walked to town, about a mile .   I did not walk with them , I felt it was too cold. I laughed when they called home and Sierra went to pick them up , they were freezing. Silly girls. They weren't dressed for warmth.
 It is time to be thinking of decorating the house for the Christmas season. I have an idea for our mantle...it's not this one , but I do like this. I love the stars and the candles.  As I was picking up some evergreen branches and twigs from the yard, I thought I need to keep these for the porch.
  I hope all of you had something to be thankful for yesterday.  Enjoy your weekend and be safe. XO

  3. I am not leaving the house today...
    I plan to clean and put away the autumn decor. Tomorrow, I will go outside and trim and bring in some cedar and bay leaf.
    It sounds like you had a fun family Thanksgiving, I wish I would have taken an after dinner walk. Our Seahawks played after dinner...we did dishes, then lounged and cheered them to victory.

    1. Lynne, I just cleared the porch of all my pumpkins and squashes....put them behind the maple tree for the squirrels. They way I do not see them during Christmas time...as I really hate to see pumpkins then. LOL. I am thinking of trimming more off the pines to put on the porch in some little vignettes. Hope your day was a success. I am dragging already. LOL. xoxo,Susie

  4. I wish I could be home taking down the autumn things and decorating for Christmas. But here I sit at work and it's so dead. Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. Mine was wonderful. Very relaxing and great food. We went out to eat so there was no cooking or clean up. Also no leftovers. That's the down side of it.

  16. I did have a wonderful Thanksgiving and this year I'm putting up a Christmas tree for the first time in a few years. At this point in time life is good for me and Christmas is a good time to solidify these good feelings.
    I'm glad you had a good holiday and thanks for your support.
