Yup, we beat the predicted ice storm (which was late, and is currently rain, not ice, hurrah!) and got our Christmas tree. It is gorgeous and scenting the whole house. I'm sitting here, on the couch in front of a lovely fire, just breathing it in. All of the gifts that need to be shipped are wrapped and packed; they will go to the Post Office tomorrow. I have a couple more projects that I'd like to finish before Christmas; but nothing huge, and it feels so good to be able to relax!
This year, I am not obsessing with the decorating; if it gets up, well and good, if it doesn't, that's ok too. I must find the kids' stockings, though; that's non-negotiable. But anything else is gravy.
Jingle Bells, anyone?
