Christmas Is Coming

When you have the choice to be right or to be kind, always pick kind.

We are into day two of working on putting up the Christmas decorations. Yesterday we brought the boxes and the artificial tree down from the attic. That's so much fun, especially taking all the clothes and shoes out of the closet to gain access. We unpacked all of the Christmas Village houses and some of the other decorations. This allowed me to to put the empty boxes back in the attic before putting the ceiling panel back in place.

Today, we moved some furniture around in the living room. I washed the front windows and moved the round table in front of the big window. I put the 4.5 foot artificial tree up and set it on the round table. The permanently installed lights on the tree worked. We have them flashing white and then multiple colors. Melva will put the decorations on the tree later.

During the year, at a community yard sale, we bought three ceramic items to add to my Christmas Village: a covered bridge, a town clock tower and the Crystal Creek Winery. Later in the week I'll set up everything on the buffet and a folding table along the carport side of the living room. I'll need to buy a couple of power strips to do it right.
