Christmas


Christmas went by too fast this year. I didn't make (or send) cards. I didn't have my solstice party :(. but I did manage to get the tree up (thanks for all of your help, Lauren!) and Ray and Lauren made my cookies for me. Somehow, I lost my photos of my tree before Christmas, so I'm uploading it today. I'll keep the tree up for another week. Even though every time I brush against it, the needles fall off (they are just balancing on there)(I buy uncultivated trees, and they aren't well know for keeping their needles) But I like the Charlie Brown look of them, and I feel like I'm rescuing them. I don't know if I will ever have a fake tree. Except a twig tree. Or a vintage feather tree. I can handle those..... I'm off now for a chai and some ginger shortbread and to read a book in front of my pretty tree. Ahhhhhh, Christmas is over.... time to relax........

I haven't seen the tree yet, it's still loading (dial-up you know!). I'm free of obligations all next week if there's a day you are free too. xoxo
