Hola! Just a brief note to wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. I hope those who celebrate this holiday are with their loved ones - family and friends and special people. As the old toast goes, "Eat, Drink and Be Merry." I will be preparing my feast later on - a filet mignon, scalloped potatoes, and baby green peas. And if I have any room left for dessert, I have a whole container full of 30 mini Chocolate Eclairs! For back-up I also splurged on a bottle of "dessert wine" that is "dark chocolate and red wine" flavored. YUM!
I've been working on putting up yet another new Christmas tree. It's a 6 1/2 foot tall beauty with pine cones, and 928 tips. I unpacked it yesterday and started "fluffing" the bottom third of the tree. Today I did the second and third tiers to finish the tree.
It took FOREVER to "fluff" out each of the individual branches but oh my, it is a gorgeous tree. Perhaps I will rotate this new tall tree with the 4.5 foot table top tree I bought a few seasons ago, depending on how ambitious I feel about lugging one tree or the other out of storage from the basement up to the main floor of the house, and then spending countless hours fluffing it up and decorating one or the other. Good thing Christmas only comes once a year.
For sure I won't be doing it today - tackling putting the lights on the tree. I bypassed buying a pre-lit wired tree because they can give you a lot of problems and you end up adding in string lights to fill in burnt out areas sooner or later! But after fluffing 928 branches, I'm done for the day, LOL!
Here she is, the bare naked tree after the first round of fluffing:
A LOOOONNNNNGGGGG way to go to a fully decked out tree. But this is all part of the wonderful and ultimately fulfilling process. Now, I'm going to go cook me a medium rare filet mignon.
