angela_o: (Santa Christmas tree)
[personal profile] angela_o
#1 Daughter is home for Thanksgiving and wants to help decorate the Christmas tree before she heads back to school. That means purchasing the tree this weekend. The new house is considerably larger than the old one, thus there is more space to decorate. That means that for the first time ever, I'm putting up 2 full-sized trees. One in the formal living room (with my GE Classic colored lights) and one in the downstairs family room with white lights. I've never used white lights before, but the downstairs family room has the fireplace and my garland for around the fireplace has white lights and I can't in good conscience mix colored and white lights. (Yes, I have been told that I have Christmas Nazi tendencies. lol) So, I've purchased two trees and they're up in the stands. The white lights are on and the other tree will have lights put up later this evening after the branches have time to fall. I've hauled out the boxes and boxes of decorations and will get the kids to help put ornaments on later tonight.

I've also got the wreath and garlands up outside, but I have to decide how I'm doing those lights this year. Outside outlet placement isn't ideal.

This means that I'll be able to relax for the entire month of December, right?

I don't know about relaxing, but it does mean that at the end of the day, you'll be able to plug in the tree, turn out all the rest of the lights, and spend a quiet moment with a hot toddy enjoying the fruits of your labors. ;-)

Hopefully the quiet moment will be in the offing soon. They trees do look pretty now that they're decorated.

Your icon is more appropriate than you realize. I bought little red lanterns to go on the front steps. Your psychic powers are showing!

Oh, that sounds like fun! First Christmas in your new house. Luck finding ways to use the outdoor outlets - that's always a pain. Like Neph's idea about the hot toddy though.

I am currently wrapping and completing shopping, since everything has to be in the mail before 9 December.

Go you for nearly being done with your shopping! I have the majority of mine done, but I haven't started wrapping yet. I need to get the gifts for my nieces and nephews in the mail.

Too bad I'm not a drinker. A toddy sounds inviting. Maybe I'll heat up some spiced cider. Hmmm.
