Just as I expected it took less than 20 minutes to completely take down my small tree and get everything packed up and back to the basement. I had it done by 6:00 a.m. today. :)
Then I began a full day of heavy housework. Some of you may remember that I have been trying to get DH to add a second picture on one side of my family room entertainment center to balance out the Thomas Kinkade artwork (I originally had two on one side and one on the other). I have been asking him to do this for a few years. He has never done it. Don't ask me why. It was simple to do. After he left for work today, I grabbed a tape measure and a screwdriver and had it done in less than 20 minutes.
I also rearranged the family room furniture and then spent the majority of my day doing my usual quarterly heavy duty cleaning.
Once all the cleaning was done, I decided to get a jigsaw puzzle going on the table that I use for my seasonal displays in the living room. I removed all the linen and added a lamp for nighttime puzzling.
I have a 14 lb turkey in the oven that is almost finished for tonight's dinner. I love being home all day to do this stuff!
Let the Basting Begin! - I am using my dining room table to baste this big one -- it's about 105 x 105 inches (king size). It's been a while since I've finished one this big.
