Otherwise.....this is what I have been up to. I went to Longwood Gardens. What a nice evening with friends. Imagine your holiday dinner table decorated and set like this! These photos from my cell phone definitely don't do the decorations justice.
Some photos in the conservatory.
I have been working on 'gratitude' jars that I want to give to some special friends as a little something extra over the holidays. I have it all in my 'head' what I want to do and as is so often, what is in my head is not what manifests when I actually complete the job. So far, I wrapped mason jars with yarn, spray painted them and then removed the yarn so make the design shown to the left. I did manage to get my tree up as you can barely see in the background. I am kind of in a bah humbug mood about decorating. To say I go overboard with decorations may be an exaggeration but I have been known to have as many as three full sized trees up and fully decorated. I have so may different themed trees and ornaments I could put up a half dozen fully decked out trees on a conservative estimate! I decorate for myself so maybe choosing to not put up as much is for me too!
