November is flying by.
I have been getting my jingle on.
Cut me some slack naysayers...
I have a full schedule.
Thursday, I am off on an adventure
with my sis, Jackie and our friends
Suellen and Karyn.
Suellen and Karyn are sisters too.
Not our sisters...
but each others sisters.
We try to "trip it" every year.
We missed it last year.
This year we are doing it big.
We are hitting the Big Apple until Sunday.
Then, I am home to work frantically
for a Christmas Show
at my house/barn.
If you live nearby you will
want to check it out.
Every time I go into the shed
my heart skips a beat.
Vintage goodness that
I want to drag it in my house!
Then on Thanksgiving
Stuart and I are off to Sedona, AZ
for 10 days.
I have to get the decorating done
so I hit it hard yesterday.
I put on Christmas tunes and unloaded tubs.
I spent much of my time embracing my loves
as I took them outta storage.
I have way more than I need...
but as junkers know
need has nothing to do with it.
I took my folks shopping today,
tonight was dinner out
for my MIL's birthday.
I sit Maggie's littles tomorrow and
I wanna spend time with Annie's kids
and my main squeeze.
I have some tweaking to do on the decorating,
and the tree isn't up.
I have the porches
and the shed to decorate yet.
I guess at some point in the next 24 hours
I should pack.
Yet, here I sit blogging.
Yeah, that's how I like to roll...
by the seat of my pants...
living on the edge, baby.
Um, more like
menopausal, forgetful and in a brain fog.
Soon, I hope the whirling dervish mode kicks in.
Doubtful since the time change is kicking my butt.
I will hit it in the ayem.
I like to get up at 4:30 a.m.
only to be
the walking dead at 8:30p.m.
I thought I'd share a few pics from
yesterday's efforts at
feverish Christmas slinging.
That house in the picture is my Mom and Dad's house.
when Grandma and Grandpa lived there.
They did it all up and hosted open houses
from Thanksgiving until New Year's.
I get my love of Christmas and it's trimmings honest!
I saved the best for last.
My lil' picture taking helper...
the cutest elf evah!
I'll be back next week with Jackie antics.
You know her nicknames for me.
I hope to prove they fit her better.
She has already called me "ninny" tonight over
the discussion of coats or no coats.
She apparently cannot read a forecast.
Time will tell who is the true idiot.
Me... the one who leaves her coat at home
only to have to buy one or
Jackie, the one who takes a bulky coat
only to have to carry it everywhere.
286. sister trips
289. a husband who folds the laundry while I decorate
290. a husband who cooks dinner too.
