The weekend After

Finally, I have a quiet moment to sit and write a little post. Its another beautiful day with an early morning temperature of 47 degrees. We have still not gotten any rain since October 10th.

Im recuperating from all the Thanksgiving offerings. We had two meals! One with my side of the family, and one with Nicks side. Except for one Brother and a niece,  Everyone was present around the tables this year. Its seems every year its gets harder for everyone to be there due to work or sicknesses. But this year was a good one. Oh, and I think I found the 50 lbs I lost last year.

My daughter is spending the whole weekend here with us. I love it. We do our traditional things. Last night we talked St. Nick into pulling the Christmas stuff out of the attic. We put away all the fall decor and now its beginning to look a lot like Christmas. We are a little ahead this year as we have finished most of our Christmas shopping. I have to wait on payday to do any more. I have to make sure I save enough to buy groceries next week.

 

So now our stockings are hung with care, the tree is up, wreaths are on the doors and the candles are in the windows. I made these white stockings last year using an old sweater from the thrift store.

 

 My theme colors this are mostly silver and red. Im using my vintage aluminum tree again this year. Yes we have a rotating color light that makes the tree change colors at night. 

I still have a few things to work on then we can relax and enjoy the season. I can hardly wait to begin my baking.

  4. Love your decoration. I don't do shopping I just give my children some money and let them get what they want. My husband and I don't exchange gifts we get what we want or need at any time and at our age that's not all that much. Take care, Jean.

  7. I love those aluminun trees. One of our neighbors had one when we were growing up. Hers had a color wheel that revolved. It was beautiful and unlike any thing I'd ever seen.
