Yesterday we spent much of the daylight hours outside. Tom finished up the outside lights, except for one set of net lights which he had to return today, since we got a colored set instead of white lights. Then he had to remove and repair two strings from the maple tree with broken wires. We suspect a rodent is chewing on them.
I added some embellishments to the wreath we got at Trader Joe's.
I picked greens from the yard and stuffed them into pots on the porch. The soil had finally thawed out.
After lunch we finally got the tulips into the ground. We plant them in gallon size nursery pots and then put them in the ground. After they are through blooming we just pop them out and replace them with dahlias.
The sun doesn't last long these short winter days. So we like to light up the darkness with holiday lights.
Today was another nice day, but I never made it out. We have a busy schedule ahead of us, so today we finished some more decorating inside and cleaned house. I spent the afternoon working on my sewing project for Isaac. It's done, but I'll have to show you that later. We will have an early dinner, and then we're getting dressed up to go to the Seattle Repertory Theater tonight. We're seeing Dancing at Lughnasa, an Irish tale full of Irish music and dancing.
Tomorrow we'll be home for a short time between going out to breakfast and leaving for Whidbey Island. We'll spend Friday night at the cabin, and take in the Christmas Parade and some shopping in Langley before returning home Saturday evening. Sunday we're heading to Gig Harbor for Tide Fest, a large arts and crafts show/bazaar.
I'll catch up with you as I can. Gotta' run.
