Two weeks ago I said I was going to go outside and cut down some of these evergreen shrubs to make a holiday arrangement.
After work today, I had a dentist appointment for a periodontal cleaning and an eye doctor appt. after the dentist appointment. I got to work at 6:30 A.M. and back home at 6:30 P.M. No time for anything but dinner, helping DH with the clean up, watching the news and making this blog post. Maybe I will get it done this weekend.
To inspire me, I went back through my Christmas pictures to find out how this table looked for the past two years. Here is last year:
Either one looks better than it does right now. :)
I would like to use the "JOY" bunting again this year and maybe incorporate some snowmen (a "LET IT SNOW" bunting would be nice, but no time to make that). With snowmen that do not necessarily scream Christmas, I can leave it up until Valentine's Day...then again it may be February before I ever get around to doing it!
I am definitely lacking in Christmas spirit this year and that is just fine. Every now and then I like to take a year off and not do the incredible amount of work that it takes to deck the place out in holiday decor.
How about you? Are you overflowing in Christmas spirit this year or have you lost it all like me?
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.
