Christmas Spirit

by - November 26, 2010

Yes, it is the end of November, and there are still beautiful flowers and green plants in the Big Woods.  I picked these a couple of days ago and brought them into the house to cheer us during the Thanksgiving holiday.

 My sisters, brother, and I (Yes, we missed you Sewing Sister.) were shopping today on the square in Pulaski, Tennessee, and there was a beautiful pot of geraniums blooming on the sidewalk. 

And yet it is time to begin decorating for Christmas.

We have chosen tomorrow to set up our Christmas tree.  The kids can hardly wait...I on the other hand am having a hard time getting motivated.

I have looked through various catalogs, scrolled through several blogs, and watched Oprah's favorite things...yet the holiday spirit is not overtaking me... yet. 

Maybe I'll start tomorrow by removing the orange and yellow flowers from the arrangement above and adding some red berries.  Hopefully that will motivate me to delve into the multitude of attic boxes that hold Christmas decor. 

I'll let you know how it turns out.
