You people never cease to amaze me. Thank you for all your heartfelt comments and good advice.
I have some really bad pictures for you. Excited? lol I meant to have Nick take pictures with his phone. They come out much better but I forgot and I don't want to wait until after school now so I'll just put the ones I took.
I decided that I could not look at my broken down entertainment center sitting in the living room one more day, so Saturday while Tim was sleeping, I took everything off of it and the umpteen million videos out of it and moved it out my way. Now I needed something to put the tv on. I tried a couple of different things and finally settled on this arrangement. It makes me smile everytime I walk past.
I also added a table beside the couch and used one of the lamps from my bedroom. One of my $1 ones.
I really had fun shopping in my own house. I used to think that would be a great idea for a job..decorating people's homes with their own stuff. Now people do that and make big bucks and have tv shows. Who knew? :)
I got out some Christmas stuff. I bought a table runner at a thrift store last year and I couldn't wait to get it on the table.
I put a few other of my favorite Christmas things out. I like drawing it out, adding a bit at a time.
I can't remember where or when (years and years ago) I got that plate but I just love that Santa and the colors.
I hope everyone has a good day. I have some errand-running to do and some shopping. Emily and Caleb (Tim's twins) will be 18 next week so we're going to do some birthday shopping. The next week, Joanna, his eldest will turn..hmmm....25 or 26...man. Time howls by. We need to get the gifts in the mail and I'll take my ornament for the swap at the same time. (I made Salmon patties last night and the whole house smells like fish this morning. I hope the ornament doesn't lol).
Big hugs to all you wonderful women. You really do enrich my life so much.
