It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
Well, folks, it’s that time of the year again, when we pull out the bright and shiny Christmas decorations and let them shine. It’s time to dust off the boxes that sat in storage for the last 11 months and remind ourselves just what all did I pack away last year! Oh yeah, I’m still hanging onto Mom’s cross-stitch gingerbread house; what a treasure. Hey kids, here are your handmade ornaments from when you were little. And look, here’s another pink flamingo ornament. How fun. I do love pink flamingo Christmas ornaments.
I’ve already put out my pre-decorated Pink Flamingo 3 foot high Christmas tree and I plan to get a real one to decorate this weekend. It always takes longer than I expect. Of course that could have something to do with wanting to get it just right and having over 300 ornaments, (not all of them are pink flamingos).
I also have a collection of Santa’s – of course – but not much for Snowmen. However, I do have seven nativity scenes; big ones, little one and ones in-between.
Downtown San Francisco is also decked out in balls of holly and jolly. It’s not as much as in years past, economics being what they are and all, but it’s still looking good.
I haven’t really gotten a good start on my Christmas shopping. Nothing like a good old, fast-approaching deadline to get the body moving. Last weekend there was too much rain. Okay, I know that’s just a lame excuse, but for now, it’s my excuse. I plan to start this weekend. Really I do….. In fact, I think I’ll run now. I hear a store sale calling my name.
Enjoy always and holiday Cheers to you all, T
