…or at least it would if it hadn’t been in the high sixties all weekend. As much as I enjoyed the beautiful cloudless sky we had yesterday and the wonderfully balmy weather, I’ve got a hankering for some decidedly wintry weather. I’m not usually a fan of snow*, but I’ve been in the Christmas mood for almost a month now and the cheery sunshine is starting to put a serious hamper on my festive feelings. Still, the weekend was filled with lots of holiday doings – we helped my mum put up both of her Christmas trees on Saturday afternoon before coming home and getting a start on our own decorating.
Mr. Awesome Sauce was a trooper and spent most of Sunday hanging lights, making trips to the hardware store, and hanging garland. He makes a great Santa’s helper, and even the kitties got in on the festive activities, and helped us pick which ornaments to put on the tree. There are still one or two things to do around the house, but for the most part we are all set for the holiday season.
I just love how it sparkles!
I’m happy to say that I’ve also got most of my holiday shopping done, including the gift for my Secret Santa recipient at work, though I’m still faced with shopping for the most difficult person on my list – my dad. I miss the days when I could just get him a Disney tie and call it good. His gift is going to require some more thought. Hmm.
And finally, I’m working on making Christmas stockings for Mr. Awesome Sauce, our
fuzzy minion kitty, Sammie, and myself. Somehow we’ve made it this far with stockings for the other kitties, but not for Sammie and ourselves. I’ll post pics once they’re done, promise.
What have you guys been doing to get into the holiday spirit?
* possibly the world’s largest understatement if Mr. Awesome Sauce is to be believed.
