Christmas is now only a week and a day away. It seems to have arrived quite quickly this year, probably because I have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of several presents from Shutterfly. I was nervous that they would get here in March, since the first shipment got lost in the mail. But they are here now, and I would imagine that the other box of them will get here in the spring sometime.
I had time this past week to decorate my tree. It took longer than I expected, no doubt because I had to stand on a chair to reach the whole top part of it. And it took three or four strings of lights, I forget exactly how many. And with the star on top, it reaches nearly to the ceiling. I had to buy a new star this year. My old one is just too small for a tree of this magnitude. And soon, it will have a bunch of presents beneath it. How exciting!
