Christmas tree assembled – check.
Windows open for unseasonal warmish weather – check.
Checking off To-Do’s while listening to hundreds of songs shuffling thru my iPod – priceless.
Scott headed off to a cross country race this morning with Martyn at a local country club, while Bella and I stayed behind to spend some quality time together. Translation? Bella laying at the front door watching the world go by and me doing a bunch of random things. Match made in heaven.
I like to take advantage of the long weekend to assemble the Christmas tree and get organized for the Christmas holiday season. A few years ago, we made the big switch to the fake tree. It’s working for us. And we still lose a handful of “pine needles” during assembly, so it almost seems like a real tree! Now, where did I put that “Evergreen” Yankee candle from last year……
No run today. Still having some shin splint issues, so I’m opting for an every-other-day schedule for the time being. I changed my mind at least six times this morning, but it felt right to stick with my plan. Besides, I’ve gotten lots of cross-training in over this long weekend in the form of leaf raking and painting. I feel OK about it.
Almost done renovating our new spare bedroom! Today also finds me priming the closet door. It’s a perfect day for it, since I have doors and windows wide open for ventilation. It’s warmer than usual and there are no bugs =
Bella should be careful; she doesn’t realize she’s involved in one of the things on my to-do list: Give Bella a bath. I won’t get many more opportunities to literally hose her down in the backyard without it being 10 degrees out! Now, where did Bella’s shampoo go? Maybe it’s with that Evergreen scented Yankee candle I still haven’t found…
|I wish this was Bella in our bathroom! She hates anything with the word "bath" in it|
Now wasn’t that fun getting a little sneak-peek into my exciting Sunday To-Do list? Back to my list before Scott returns home and I check off my final To-Do for today: Become a couch potato while watching the Patriots game!
Real or fake?
(and c’mon, you know I’m referring to Christmas trees!)
