Can you believe it is already Thanksgiving?
I feel like the time has been flying by this year and it has snuck up on me.
I usually have my house decorated with Christmas goodies and am getting ready to host my Holiday party.
This year, I feel like I am so behind!!!
So I started getting a few things going…
I found these huge mercury glass balls …
along with a couple of tiny ornaments and a sweet little blue bird.
Belsnickles are a favorite of mine, too. I always keep an eye out for them.
I love snow tipped bottle brush trees…
this tiny pink one fits perfectly in this little teacup on the shelf in my kitchen.
I have been pulling out some boxes of Christmas decorations and slowly getting
a few things up around the house.
This is my kind of snow…
There’s much to do…and frankly,
I am feeling a wee bit uninspired at the moment.
The trees need to be dressed,
the mantles decorated
and the outside garland placed above the door.
As I mentioned the other day,
A winter storm moved into our area over the past couple of days
and covered the world outside with a blanket of snow…
not my favorite thing to tell you the truth…
but I guess it helps set the Holiday mood
We finally got our power and phone back-
no cellphone service yet.
Some of you asked about a winter storm in California…
Winter storm? Really?
Crazy to even think , huh?
It is probably not much compared to what some of you all experience for a winter storm.
I mean, this is the place where warm weather & sunshine prevail!
Last week we were near 80 down in SoCal…
this week it was down to 23.
NOT my kind of weather!!
We do usually get some snow here…
but I am never ready for it.
I do not really embrace winter.
I am cold enough all the time already without adding in the chilly air and snow-
I use my seat warmers in my car all year long!
I am definitely more of a warm weather kind of girl,
but the cold weather outside has given me some time to get some things done inside…
especially without power and phones.
Pulling out some boxes and thinking about decorating for Christmas was fun.
Now I just gotta get going on it!!
Don’t forget~ Feathered Nest Friday coming your way!
Hope to see you there!
