On my mind today November 01, 2021

It was a good decision!

A year ago when I put up my Christmas tree I had no thoughts of keeping it up long term. After a few months I thought why not?

Who would have ever guessed the year would fly by so fast that here we are again. Time to put up the tree. What, you disagree? My neighbors are all doing it, I’m in good company. And it has taken no effort at all. I love it.

My one concession to ending the season was the lights. I haven’t turned them on since about February.

I’m pleased I don’t have to go to all that trouble this year.

The added bonus was the privacy screen it provided. I can sit at the table and read as long as I wish and the neighbors are none the wiser.

At least I don’t think they can still tell I’m there.

Oh well, at least I can’t still see them

That reminds me of my eldest son when he was about two.

He figured if he put his hand over his eyes as he walked out of his room that we wouldn’t be able to see him. So Cute!

I wish I had a picture of that!

He’s pretty smart, it didn’t take him long to figure it out.

These ornaments could even be mine.

Did I mention there are still Christmas decorations in almost every room?


Understated, of course.

  1. I love that idea. I have done up decorations already and hope to get the tree done this week. I want to get my Christmas letter written and would love to get some baking done but it won’t happen. I have surgery on November 10th on my right hand – carpal tunnel issue. My hand will be be functioning too well for a few weeks. What ever gets done, gets done.
