Christmas Decorations

It’s pretty sad when the bulk of your Christmas decorating is a pile of wrapped presents that are sitting on your dining room table while they await a Christmas tree to live under for awhile.  The problem is that we bought a treadmill.  The treadmill is stored in the place where the tree usually goes.  We have to move things around to make room for the tree.  All this really means is that we need to take the mini fridge upstairs.  Unfortunately, I pulled a muscle in my shoulder/neck/upper back area and the fridge is too heavy for one person to handle on their own.

But in the mean time, I’ve been decorating other things.  I made a swag for our front window from about 7 yards of red and green fabric.  I wrapped a picture that’s up on our wall with some wintery fabric and attached a couple of bows.  I’d received both lengths of fabric free from a friend.  Those shiny plastic garlands have been strewn about the room – in doorways, up the banister, on another window, on a picture frame…  A pre-lit garland is also on the banister.  The stockings are hung, the downstairs bathroom has a bit of decoration as well.  Oh yeah!  And the wreath is on the door.  All we need now is a spot for the tree.

Until then the pile of presents on the table continues to grow and our surface for eating continues to shrink.
