I tried to hang up Christmas lights in my bed room window a few days ago. My make-shift hooks held for ehhh…. 5 minutes, until the wiring miraculously unhooked itself from them and went swinging across to the other side of the window frame. Crash boom went the big red bulb and hello said my carpet to little teeny weeny ruby colored shards of glass.
I am doing all I can to not be that bulb this week…. and doing a half-assed job of it. Funny how we always forget how stressful you can allow the week before Christmas to be huh?
Gifts or no gifts, we decided on no gifts, somehow there is always something that needs to be done in order to maintain the tradition that is Christmas. I’ve said it before, and I will say it every day, I LOVE tradition, but staying up until 4 am to ice cookies last night? Mmmmm not sure how that fits into the balance.
This is my favorite tradition.
A Christmas Tree.
Homemade Christmas bulbs. Clear glass ornaments stuffed with gold sparkle covered plastic netting.
Bits of twisted golden wood thrown in throughout the tree. Twinkling next to each light it hangs off of.
I forgot my tripod. Pardon the shakeys.
Tomorrow morning I plan on waking up with a post-it note to do list plastered to my forehead.
All for the love of tradition…
which is okay with me.
Whatcha think of the cookie trays I put together today for a few customers of Spa Car Wash in Berwyn?
‘Tis the season for sugar overdose!!
