So... Christopher stayed at our house last night and cleared his mega computer (that thing could support a NASA project) from where he had set it up on the dining table back to his room. Thus, making it possible to move furniture around to make a space for the Christmas tree later today.
I have packed Autumn (except the front porch) and removed objects from the buffet where they await tucking away until early January. A few Christmas craft and recipe books have been pulled from their place on the shelves and perused.
I was able to use Amazon credit (thank you again!) to send a small birthday gift to Stephanie along with David's Christmas gift (each grandchild gets a very small gift from us).
How do I feel? Blech. Bah humbug.
Sigh... so I've decided I'll bring you along on my search for Christmas joy. We'll see how soon I can overcome the Christmas crankies. I mean, really, how can I stay cranky for long when I have this face around?
As I write, she has seen something on the deck and is quite frustrated there is no low window in the kitchen as she runs between the two rooms, hoping to see where the intended object has gone. In her kitty way of thinking, if she saw it through the deck window then she should be able to see it from the kitchen. I think she is also cranky.
I will soon pull out the scrapbook journal and make my Christmas list of things to be and do this season. The devotional book, Come Thou Long Expected Jesus, will be placed beside my Bible for advent reading (beginning December 1st instead of last Sunday).
Perhaps they will help overcome the crankies.
