I got my Christmas lights put up today. Took me all of about 90 seconds, and most of that was spent trying to find the extension cord. It’s not like I have a huge area to cover or anything. In fact, one of the things I like about living in a hundred and forty square feet is that it’s really easy to decorate for the holidays! Makes life so much simpler this time of year. Now I have time to do other things like… walk on the beach or go to Disneyland! You thought I was going to say shop, didn’t you? Nope, I’m not a shopper. Never have been. My favorite gifts are hand-made and sweet and chocolate-y.
I also got my Christmas tree today and it’s all decked out in ornaments and garlands – took me all of 3 minutes to do it! And then, guess what? The app added the sparkling lights and falling snow all by itself! How cool is that!? I don’t even have to be at home to see my tree – it goes everywhere I go. I don’t have to water it or worry about its needles falling on the floor. The cat can’t knock it over. I can even re-decorate it, if I want. All I have to do is start the tree app on my phone and there it is!
So, the pomegranate liqueur is in the making, the mint chocolate chips are ready for cookies, the zucchini chocolate bread is cooling on the rack. I’m ready for the holidays! Bring ’em on!
And I’m wishing each and every one of you a calm, peaceful holiday season, full of the things that make you smile. Eat more veggies! That’ll help!
