One month until Christmas. Can it be? This year, I am on it. No, I am actually ahead!
The Thanksgiving weekend was a wonderful warmup; thank you L for bringing the wine for dinner, and this sweet velveteen heart which I shall keep and put on the tree this year~
I made a trip to Los Angeles today, and decided to surprise Mom on the way home by bringing home the tree. I get my Noble Fir from Home Depot~
I have told you before how much I love my Prius; it fits a tall tree with ease~
My Tree Guys are students at Orange Coast College in Architecture and Computer Science; I said, “you are going to be on the blog, look proud!” God Bless the U.S. of A. and the work ethic of our college kids~
Arriving home, I found that Mom had bought some cedar garland and a few pointsettia; we were both in the Christmas spirit! I was happy too that Adan my gardener was still at the house, and helped me get this enormous tree in the house; tonight I got the lights done, and added the Nuremberg Angel to the top; this alone makes me very happy to see~
I am going to spend Christmas in Laguna and then a week in Beaune. New Year’s in Beaune is something we have never done but we will do this year; I can’t wait to do the house up for Reveillon~ the décor, the food, the guests…the decor….will be fantastic. And so, perhaps, because I am missing that week between Christmas and New Year, I will savor each day in the month of December while I am in Laguna…..
