Deck the halls....

Busy...Busy...Busy!! It has been the weekend that I decided to decorate for the season...Now as one knows there is no such thing as decorating without cleaning...So the domestic goddess in me came out and I dusted and cleaned and set up the tree...put on the carols and decorated the tree...this year I decorated it in stars...they have words on them...HOPE...JOY....PEACE...WISH
It is a simple tree with an Angel that my sister made on the top and I love it...Almost all decorated in white and silver...So at night it looks very much like a tree that would be outside...This is the first season that I have had to do all of this by myself...I can't say that was much fun...but it did put a different feel into the house...A different warmth...When I do my affirmations in the morning I send out healing and loving thoughts to all that surround me...and with this season upon me I am now thinking that I need to widen those thoughts...spread it out a little more...send it to more and more people....I am not in the position this year to do some of the things that I have done in the past...but I am going to remember to pass it on more this year...the feelings of good tidings...saying hello to more strangers...smiling when I normally just go about doing the errand that I have to do...Wishing people a MERRY CHRISTMAS (which we all know is not politically correct!) allowing myself to open a little more and feel the joy of the season...

ok, now that you have your tree up how about a quick trip to Missouri and do mine!? Yes? No? ... I understand! I really love the idea of a white and silver tree. It must be stunning. Mine is mostly gold and red, but with an old-fashioned flair. I have new ornaments to put on, like white peacocks with loooonng tail feathers. Ok, now I'm getting in the mood!

Hugs!

I did mine this weekend too. Mine is pink and purple. It's crazy but I love it. Glad you are puttering around and doing the Christmas thing. It's hard to get started but once you do it's a slippery slop. One thing leads to another and before you know it your up to your ears with the decorating, cooking, shopping, the whole Christmas nine yards. Have fun and my thoughts and prayers are with you.
