Humble apologies for the blurry photo. I still can’t master using a smartphone for photos. I’m still coughing like crazy, but took time out from making the pitiful unpleasant noises to put up the first tree. This tree is in my office. The “big tree” with all the decorations will reside in our minuscule living room. It’s awaiting a nice new wooden stand, hand crafted by my sweet husband. The plastic one from seasons past finally fell apart. It’s no wonder since it has spent uncountable summers in a hot, humid, mouse infected attic. (I know … ICK!!) It was time for an upgrade.
Speaking of which, I’ve noticed that many of our decorations are noticeably dated. Maybe after the Holidays I’ll hit some of the sales and do a little decoration upgrading. I should be done coughing by then.
At any rate, Christmas may now officially begin.
