Thanksgiving is over. It's time to prepare for Christmas!
We made wreaths at my sister's house after thanksgiving dinner. Mine is now hanging by the front door.
Tom has a start on the outdoor lights.
The house is stripped down of other decorations and collections, everything is cleaned and dusted and vacuumed. Well, there is that one Santa on the mantel, purchased this June in New Orleans. It is made out of a Cypress knee. (Look it up if you don't know).
The rest of the Santa collection plus all the rest of the decorations are now down out of the attic and await in this stack of tubs in the garage. I'll start on that tomorrow. It will take a couple of days. Then there will be the tree to put up.
After the decorating, it will be time to make by baking list, collect ingredients and begin creating cookies. I'll have to compose the annual Christmas letter and decide what kind of card/photo card to send with it.
Of course, there's shopping. I do have a start on it, and I tend to do a lot of it on line. We don't buy for a lot of people, so we spoil the ones we do buy for.
Are you beginning the preparations, have you already done them, or are you just much more low key about it than I am?
