Actually while I was feverishly getting the house ready for Christmas I also developed pneumonia which really put me down.
Two of Santa’s helpers came by with a freshly cut Christmas tree harvested in western Maryland.
Charlie cut off the bottom and stuck it in a bucket of water until next week when we’ll bring the tree stand down from the attic. It looks like fairly large tree but we really won’t know until we drag it inside and set it up.
I added some sprigs of boxwood to the crèche under the coffee table in the living room.
I also added a long piece of sparkly ribbon to the mantel — just what it needed.
Hopefully I’ll start to make more progress when the antibiotic takes effect. I’m sure to get a bolt of Christmas cheer when the children facilitate the church service today with songs they’ve been practicing for months.
Is something slowing your progress?
