It looks like unless I get more hours in the day, I'm gonna be doing a weekly update instead of a daily blog. I started this blog when I was at home with a broken leg. I have been lucky enough to be working every day almost- now- and when I am home, I'm making Christmas.
For instance, when I did have a half day, I helped boyfriend finish the lights on the outside of the house and I put up this : my yule tree. Oh tananbaum, oh tananbuam, how lovely are your branches~
Speaking of lights- the boys in this house fix everything! the 1.50$ light string doesn't work? check the fuses- did you know lights have fuses? I sure didn't. If the fuses are new, check every light on the string. look for a broken wire. Even if the wire is cut, the boys fix it! I tried to throw a string of lights away- dad fished it out of the trash and electrical taped it back together.
My first thought was "what the heck?" it's a buck fifty per string- no large amount of money. I think some things are meant to be thrown away-
My second thought was "wow- ok- they don't spend money frivolously, that's good, and not throwing it away is better for the environment"
but I finalized my thoughts with "I'm not putting any taped together lights on an extremely combustable tree".
Other than that, my red hair is holding, I've been getting spam (I'm closing comments after three days to see if that helps), and I'm zentangling my little heart out!
Off to read your blogs!
