I'll just do what I can reach ..




Off to Costco I go to get that wreath I saw last weekend.
I meant to just get the wreath and a few other items on my list.
While walking over to the paper towels area,
THEY jumped in my cart.
I am now the owner of two ceramic candle holders.
They have snowflake designs.
I haven't bought myself anything for the Holidays or Winter
In FOREVER
Fun
I got home and hung the wreath up.
It doesn't look too bad.
Hope the birds don't eat the fake red berries this year.
Last year, I had a berry wreath and they did.
I got some of the front yard lights up.
Just enough so when I get up in the meowning
The darkness is cheery.
It's frozen out.
Nothing like walking the old dog in the tundra.
Today, I'm going to put more lights up.
Mr. Boatman put out the extension cords late last night.
He's been Mr. Invisible.
His new job keeps him late at work.
I think I will be doing all the lights and the decorating.
Which I'm fine with.
It's just more fun when we do the lights together.
This year I won't be doing the trees down the driveway
Like we usually do or the house
I'll just do what I can reach ..

Those ceramic candle holders are gorgeous! Mom says she really likes them lots! She wishes she could hang our lights outside, but we're having men come offur soon to put a new roof on our house. So, the lights have to wait. The men said probably the end of next week and it'll only take about 4-5 days, and she's FURRY adamant about the lights, so they'll get up sometime. She is having dad get up in the attic to get all of the Christmas decorations down and she'll do some this weekend! Can't wait to see the "finished" project of lights!

Pretty candle holders. Costco is very dangerous for me, I usually come back with one thing not on my list. I need to get wreaths there too. It was freezing this morning. My front yard still has frost on it now.

I really like your new ceramic candle holders. I've managed to stay out of the holiday section on my recent trips to Costco. :-)

I haven't bought anything new, decoration wise, for Christmas because I don't use all the stuff I already have! Plus I'm staying out of stores, as much as possible, as items have a habit of jumping into my cart as well.

Your candle holders are gorgeous. I like in a dark evening, to light some candles and let the shadows dance around the room.

Very pretty candle holders. Sometimes you just have to treat yourself to a new decoration or two!

JC~ Those candle holders are so pretty!!!!! And the fire isn't exposed so tails could get lit up too easily!

Purr-ty!

There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all of the drama and the people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right and pray for those who don’t. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is part of life, getting back up is living.
