This week’s assignment:
- Something red
- Something green
- Something you decorate
Ok. I tried not to use all Christmas stuff, so here’s what I came up with.
Something Red: This cute little case that had some yummy products from philosophy in it. I have no use for it other than it’s cute. Right now it is sitting on my dresser, waiting for me to come up with some purpose for it.
Something Green: I was tempted to use my Grinch slippers, but decided against it. Instead, here is one of the few plants in my house that I have not yet managed to kill. It’s kind of dusty looking, huh? I’d wipe it down, but you know the saying…if it ain’t dead, don’t mess with it.
Something you decorate: I could take pictures of my whole house, since that is in a constant state of redecorating. But I’d rather wait until I’ve replaced some old furniture before I do that. So instead, here is the table in my entryway. I try to change it up to match whatever season it is currently. Up until a few weeks ago, it was dressed up for hockey season, but I begrudgingly changed it for the holidays.
So…did you play?
I have a small 3-foot fiber optic tree that my mom found for me a few years ago. While I was in my apartment, with just me there, it was just the right size. But now I have my own house and reeeeally wanted to get a big tree to go with it. I didn’t want the hassle, mess, and worry that comes with a real tree, so I headed out yesterday afternoon and went shopping for a fake one.
After looking at several dozen at various stores, I finally found one I liked at Target. And of course, it had to be much more expensive than the plain jane cheap one I could’ve gotten. But it already has lights. And it is just 3 pieces that fit together. And the limbs fold out for easy display and in for easy storage. And it was just pretty.
Oh yeah, and it is TALL. And lean. Just like I like my men. Unfortunately, I haven’t had any of those around lately.
But that’s not going to stop me from getting into the swing of things. I LOVE Christmas and I LOVE December (except for the damn cold, that is) and I WANT DECORATIONS!!! So I got the tree up and decorated last night. It’s covered in, mostly, my Dr. Seuss and Sesame Street ornaments. Plus a few random ones here and there.
And I carted all the stored boxes of decorations out of the garage and went to town in my living room. I wish I had lights on my house, too, but I’m not quite ready to tackle that project on my own.
