Christmas Decorating Delayed

I love Christmas

Can you please bring up the Christmas decorations ?

Not today but real soon

Busy at work

The last two days taking care of the yard

Three days later my wife asks again

O.k but we can't put them up yet

I don't have time and I want to help

I like Christmas too

My mother loved her decorations and tree

I will always cherish those memories

My wife reminds me

You have to clean out the living room to make room

I have a few boxes of things I have not found a place for

They were in the office until I cleaned that room

Now what ?

I throw Christmas songs on to keep her in the mood

I really don't want to give the things away

But no place for them

It is a combination of books and things I have printed out on the computer

Then there are odds and ends

We are both off today

We sent out Christmas cards

That is always a lot of fun

My wife makes them all out

I sign and seal them

That made her happy in the morning

The day flew bye

We ate a late dinner

Relaxing and watching a little t.v.

Now it's 8:45 and it's getting late

Between little projects I have started and now I am trying to finish

A book I am enjoying

Reading and writing will just have to be put on hold

I figure if I move a few things downstairs

I can put the boxes there for now

That will buy me some time

I will talk later and see if I can make it happen

I have to get my two story house cleaned top to bottom first. Then get the decorations and finally a tree. I think most likely we will put up the tree just before Christmas so that it survives through the New Year. I no longer send cards to people who have computers I send them by email. However I do have a couple of cards to send to people who have no computers so I will be busy for a couple of weeks. The problem is I also have work to do and my blogs to keep up so I might be sleeping very little until Christmas.

Gypsy Rose Lee I love how people decorate their houses. Everyone has their own special ornaments or decorations that make them happy. My wife has decorations from when she was a child. My decorations when I was little have all disappeared over the years. Thank you for reading and sharing. Have fun decorating and making your home look more beautiful than ever.

We've just got the boxes down, late yesterday. I had ear-marked today for doing the cards but haven't even started yet and it's already 17.20! I had to sort out the list, then we had to put up the string to hang them on (not enough surface room to put them out around the room), then I got side-tracked as always.

Tomorrow it's a must because I have to take some to others at the weekend and many have to meet the deadline for sending abroad - Aussie, New Zealand, Canada & France. Ah well.....

Good for you! Ours goes up much nearer to Christmas, along with the decorations. I hope you have a great Christmas.

Annart All done. Even our Cat Charlotte joined in. Very pretty. My wife gets all the credit. I am just her helper. She is very happy now. Thank you for reading and caring.

It sounds a lot like my thought processes. I can't seem to get to everything this time of year. Wonderful that you got your tree up, mine is still in the box.

KoffeeKlatchGals Turn on the Christmas music and ask a friend for some help. Once it's up all your good memories will take over. Then you can enjoy writing and the holidays with happiness and a loud cheer. Please let me know how you make out ? I will get a nice cup of hot chocolate with plenty of marshmallows ready or even ask my wife to bake a hot apple pie. We love to make you happy. I struggled thinking about my mom and dad who have both passed. It's been awhile but it doesn't make us forget. We have to find joy in our days and nights. Turn on the Christmas lights beautiful and bright. It's a start. Thank you for making my day special. Have a good morning and a better afternoon.
