My plan was to get the house decorated for Christmas today before doing anything else, but I'm burning out. Every time we move to a new house -- like this year -- I have to rethink where to put all the decorations. It stresses me out, so every year I put up less and less.
And today when I unpacked my battery-operated candles, I discovered that they had melted and reformed while in storage into weird shapes. This one looks more like a bone than a candle.
So I took a break to print the photos for my November color block ...
... and to pull together the fabric for it.
Then I hung Christmas towels in the bathrooms and took another break to stitch a little on my latest wool project.
Now I'm stymied because the extension cords, which I need for the lights, are packed away at my husband's shop; the melted candles need batteries; and I remembered that last year as I packed to move to the new house I gave away all of my fake pine branches, which I need for my arrangements. So now I have to either clip some real ones (but it's pouring rain) or buy more.
I think I'll just pour another glass of iced tea and do some more stitching.
Have a colorful day
