…and he is watchin’ your every move!!
So, the Santa’s are all out – for the most part. I am sad that there will be no “Santa Tree” this year, but the cats are altogether too interested in the tree that I use… I fear for my Santa’s well-being! And, I am afraid if we have “Santacide” that there will be no visit from that Jolly Old Elf – except from the coal truck!!
So, I have my step-back cupboard filled with my Santa’s and there are a few others standing as sentinels in my family room!
Yes, Santa is watching us, with a multitude of eyes!
Some of my “Tree Santa’s” are watching from the shelves here… I am not sure they like it as much, but it works!
I started my Christmas shopping yesterday. I got all of one present crossed off my list. I am certainly glad that my Christmas knitting is having greater success! I guess I just need to head downtown for a day and get everything crossed off my list – and hang the sales. What I pay in extra for the items I have, I believe I will save in gas driving from one store to another to find the items advertised.
Here is some retailer brilliance – they must have ONE object in stock per store from the sale flyers. There is a way to endear your customers to you. Phoey on all of them, I say! Downtown Holland will benefit from my frustration yesterday. Fortunately, I have only a few items on my list that I need to get.
I have been enjoying our tree this year a tremendous amount! How pleasant it is to sit and knit, listening to Christmas music. The hours of knitting have certainly been a blessing. Decorating the tree this weekend was also a very nice thing to do. It was a good reminder to me of how much my teenagers savor the season as well. I heard some interesting comments from their mouths as they remembered ornaments they made for me. I was sad to hear that the ornaments they made for their dad that were sent with him do not grace the tree at his house. I cannot imagine a tree without these tiny treasures. They warm my heart!
I am off to get a wee hair cut… be blessed in your day today! Tonight I have Heidi’s Christmas Concert…check here for the review tomorrow!
