Lots of yard cleanup was done here this weekend, pumpkins added to the compost bins, and fake pumpkins and gourds were stored. I know I have way too many decorations and need to release some to a better home. I have been dragging out Christmas and know I need to purge here too.
I have a twig tree that goes in the dining room and I used to have lights that were green and red. I found them years ago in a shop that is no longer in business. The green and red looked so nice in my white light world. It was just the right touch. I have looked everywhere and even online...to no avail. Well, today I was in the attic and I found a basket of things I brought home from my Mom's home eight yrs ago. I had bought her the same tree and lights and she had switched to the white. The tree was sent off to her sister after Mom left us. I had not given it much thought.....until I found one single set of red and green lights, just what I need<3 Thank you Mom! I do know you are my angel and always with me. I think I will pack up some of her things and send them to my son, her first grandchild.
So my little twig tree is not quite done, but I will post it later this week.
While turkey soup simmers on the stove and the fresh bread cools I will continue to decorate. Hubby is watching the Patriots and by the sound of it, life is good.
