Leaves! Everywhere, leaves! Great big drifts of em. Noisily crunching as I walk to the car. The weather has taken a distinctly wintery turn.
that in mind, I got a xmas tree. A fake one, of course. I hadn't
meant to, not today, anyway. I just went out for some cigarettes and
ended up going to three different places in search of a tree. I could
only find one white one, and it's a little larger than I wanted. It'll
have to do. I just hope I got enough ornaments and lights. Now I get
to put it together. Stay tuned..
I just finished putting my tree together. It took a couple of hours. It
always takes longer than you'd expect with those fake ones; fluffing up
those metal branches takes a while. I'm dissatisfied with the green wire
on the white tree, but it's all I could find, so it'll have to do.
While I was at the store, I made a note to remember to get ornament
hooks, then I promptly forgot. Now I find I'm bereft of hooks. Hookless.
I don't know if I'll get the outside lights put up this year.
It turned cold pretty fast, and I don't much relish the thought of going
up and crawling around on the roof when it's 30 degrees out. I'm a
creature of comfort. Yesterday I went to a craft fair and got some
pretty baubles to add to my already cluttered shelves. One can never
have enough nick-nacks.
The windchimes are tinkling.
