Hello Monday

Good morning

well ~ it is morning here!

it was the kind of week-end
that I wish had at least 3 days
instead of 2...

I look back at all the things I got accomplished
and at my list of things left to do

the house is trimmed though
for the most part

it took most of the day Saturday
and after supper I ran a hot bath
put on a face mask ~ grabbed my book
and disappeared for an hour
it was bliss!

my Christmas cards are all written up
just have to pop those in the mail

as I sat down Sunday afternoon
I wondered how many people still go old school
and write out Christmas cards

I still do it because I love receiving them
although the cost of mailing them is crazy expensive
but I can do it ~ so I do

Sunday we also went to the local nursery
and picked out our tree

they get them locally ~ fresh cut
smells like heaven

so we will bring it in on Friday
set it up so I can put the lights on it Sat
and decorate it on Sunday

I like a million or so lights
give or take
so it takes me a couple of hours
in and out each branch.

Lots planned for this week
a shopping trip with Mom on Tuesday night
then little things sprinkled throughout the week
to help alleviate the stress on the week-end
as it will be a busy one.
Hope you had a wonderful week-end.

Don't forget about my giveaway ~ I will be closing comments on 
Thursday night and announcing the winner on Friday

Have a great week!

We spent the day with my gram yesterday and it was so nice... but my list is staring me down now!

Can you come over and spur me on? I wish!!

Hugs and have a great week!!

Sounds very much like my weekend but without the tree. (doing that next weekend.). Hey that car with the tree on top looks very similar to mine! I laughed about the Keep Calm sign as I printed it out and framed it. Have a happy week, my friend! xxoo :)

I just LOVE this time of year and all of those fun festivities! I'm going to lunch and shopping with my mom this week too! And i'm so glad you're still doing cards. I am too and I think it's a very special part of christmas! said...

Love the new look of your blog! I almost didn't know where I was. Look at you all gussied up for the holidays. I just have the nativity set up and that kicked my butt. I can't wait to see your tree! I couldn't imagine spending 2 hours putting on lights! OMG! You ARE my hero!
