I usually do all of my Christmas decorating on the weekend after Thanksgiving. It seems perfect, because I have time off. I was even all set to write a post about how it went today. I planned a whole post out and was just going to fill in the details.
This year, however, I did not do any decorating over the post-Thanksgiving weekend. I still have my harvest decorations up, inside and out. Part of that is because I have been overwhelmed this year, especially the latter half of it, and part of it is because Thanksgiving was so darn early this year – there had been a whole extra week of November!
Tomorrow though, that all changes. It will be the first day of December, and I’m bound and determined to get some of it done- even if it’s just the inside decorations. If the weather holds, we’ll try to do more.
I did get a lead on some free greenery at one of the Christmas tree places – they have a dumpster full of trimmings that they occasionally let people pick through, and I may take them up on it if they’ll let me.
