Between a Tree and a Hard Place
December is my month to shine.
It's the only time I get festive.
It's the only time I decorate.
I love twinkle lights and green garland and red and white striped Christmas tree ornaments.
I love my nativity scene.
I love the smell of cinnamon and pine.
But, I'm moving next weekend. And I have no desire to put up decorations for a few days, only to take them down again, and then put them up...again.
Contrary wise, I don't see myself moving into a new house and jumping right into the garland and tree skirts. In fact, I don't even know where those things are.
So I'm between a tree and a hard place. I don't know when I'll get to decorate, or if I even will. And it makes me feel...sad. Everything is different, and it would be nice to have some...sameness. To indulge in some nostalgia
So in the mean time, the in-between time, I'm going to put some of these together, and hope that I actually run into someone in need.
I guess this is a good opportunity to get back to basics this season.
Still, don't stare at me weird if you drive past the Christmas tree lot and you see me sniffing the pine...it's my way to cope.
