It's nearly here!

Thanksgiving you ask? Yes, Thanksgiving in the U.S. is nearly here, but what I am referring to is Christmas! Only 49 more days and to some that may seem like plenty of time, but when to a knitter....,that is the blink of an eye! I have five more gifts to make! Five! I'm knitting as fast as I can, but things like work and life are getting in the way!
Not to mention the fact that I love Christmas and love to decorate and I used to wait until Thanksgiving weekend to put up all the lights and the tree, but in recent years that hasn't been enough time. I mean after cooking for Thanksgiving visiting family and friends and taking in some of the holiday festivities, it would suddenly be Christmas and not so much as an ornament would be hung in my house, so this year I have a plan!

Yes, a plan. I am going to start decorating this weekend. I have the decorations out of the attic and the tree will come down tonight. I have been playing Christmas music this morning to put me in the right frame of mind. See I personally used to hate to see Christmas items in the stores and on display before Thanksgiving and especially before Halloween, but if I am going to get it done, I have to start now. So here we go!!!!!!!

I'm not a huge fan of Christmas, so I still take it easy. Kind of fun to see that you appreciate it though.
