Making a little progress

The temperature turned out to be a wonderful 78 degrees yesterday, albeit the wind was a little strong. Nevertheless, I got out all the Christmas lights and successfully attached them to my roof. It took most of the afternoon and a quick trip to Wal-Mart to buy a new timer, some more extension cords, and some more clips.

Last year, I had all red lights on the roof, but only 4 strings of them. After Christmas, I found four boxes of green lights for 75% off, so, I spent the time to alternate between red and green to make our home a festive holiday place!

Since it gets dark so early, they were on when the girls got home last night from Muskogee. Audrey and Sally liked them; Emily was upset that I put them up without her. I told her that I had ONLY got the lights on the roof and next Saturday, we'd have plenty to do, putting up the lights around the windows and in the bushes. She was OK with that.

Once I get it all together, I'll take a picture and post it here for all to enjoy. I just hope we can have the status of "Christmas House" this year!

You had read lights?

Perhaps...perhaps I did!

I'll make the change. Spell checker didn't catch that one! ;-)

My little one wanted a small tree in her room this year. (Her NEW room that is purple, blue and green.) We went to Big Lots yesterday and she picked out a PURPLE tree, blue stars, and silver balls. She also picked small blue shiny package (box) for underneath. I must say I like it. And YES, Rick. She slept with all the lights on last night.

Watch out, Steve.

Okay, I know you are kidding.

Rick Boyne said...

Yes. It is SUCH a good thing I'm already married. I'm sure THAT is what is keeping it from happening! Right.


Steve is always the kidder. No threat there, for sure, for sure!
