It doesn’t feel like the holidays yet. I’ve noticed over the past few years I’m slower to jump into that festive feeling. Still love the season but I’m not so giddy about it, at least not until the week before Christmas.
It’s just as well this year. Since we’re updating the kitchen my usual early December decorating has been pushed back. We’re having new flooring installed this week, the wallpaper below the chair rail still needs to be put up, then there are all the little things.
So the living room is full of stuff. The kitchen table and chairs. The table we use as a desk. Boxes and boxes of Christmas decorations, and the 8 foot iron ornament tree I just bought.
And oh! The print of one of my photos I ordered to hang on the living room wall is here, sitting on one of the tables.
In a day or so the washer & dryer that usually live in the kitchen will have to be moved out the way, too, I guess into the dining room.
I’m out of my comfort zone, big time. But it’s temporary. One way or another, this place has to be straightened up by December 24, when we host a houseload of my beloved in-laws to feast on the seven fishes and assorted goodies. Even if it’s not all done, it’ll at least be festive and warm with a new kitchen floor!
