I hope that y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday.
We celebrated our first one here in Texas. Now the left overs
are in the fridge and it's time to think about Christmas! Well,
it doesn't feel like Christmas here. The sun is shinning and it will
be around 70 degrees today. Beautiful day with no snow in sight.
The wonderful thing about Picasa Web is that old pics from
previous years are so handy to refer to. Do you remember the
decorations I had on my porch last year? Well I pulled up some
of the pics to remind myself what I did. I want to decorate every
square inch of our new place including our back and front porches.
But I need a little different theme this year. I am opening
Christmas decorating boxes and plan a quick trip to Hobby
Lobby today too. I hope that it's not too crazy out there. I
usually avoid black Friday shopping, but holiday decorations
are always the exception.
Every house has a different personality and the porch is no
exception. I think I will start with the potting bench and let it
evolve from there. Do you decorate that way? I usually don't have
anything specific in mind. I just pull out a few things and see
where the muse directs me. I don't think that I have ever
decorated the same way twice.
I left some of my decorations in storage back in Idaho. One day when we
finally get that cabin built I will already have the furniture and decorations
up there for it. I remember last Christmas we had plans to start construction
in the spring. Then the move to Texas came about and well the cabin
just took a back seat.
Now we are down here near the Gulf Coast. Maybe I
need a beach theme for this year. We'll see what happens.
So stop back by and see what's going on.
Bentley is still in bed. He played so hard and had so
much turkey yesterday. He's being lazy now.
Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley
