Sharing some Country Living Christmas Love
I just had to share these pictures I took in the fall at the CL Fair. I love decorating with my bears.
I decided I was done with my shopping. I managed to find everything that was asked for. Still need packages to arrive, waiting, waiting....... If things weren't ask for then I didn't buy. I will even out with money and gift cards. After my therapy yesterday I went to lunch with a friend that doesn't do Christmas. She and her husband didn't do Christmas when they were young and they don't now. Zip, nothing. She has never said if it was a religious belief, so I don't think that it why. Her children celebrate with their children. My friend talks about taking trips with their kids during the holidays. They would just take off and drive somewhere without reservations. She said that was really fun. While that works for them, I think it's a little sad. I agree, that this holiday is a bit over done, but it's about the "feeling". Even though I try to make it a bit easier every year, I would miss celebrating. The Hallmark movies, church, children singing, bells a ringing, yummy treats, gifts of love, and the lights......love the lights.
I need to wrap a few presents because some little spies are coming over for a bit. My car is grounded so I can't go to their house. (An engine light that needs to be checked out) It's a good excuse for me not to do anything today. The realtor called. This is the first time since before Thanksgiving. Someone want to come see our house. They wanted to come today. First time that I have said "no". I asked if they could come on Thursday or Friday. Supposedly they will try to reschedule. I need a little more than 5 hours this time around.
Well, off to check the mail and then to straighten up the house for the spies.
