i am going to be honest.
life is beyond crazy here on 34th street!
yesterday, i had a minor routine medical procedure.
no worries needed!
there are only a few hints of holiday cheer
...one being the Poinsettia that my father traditionally
gifts to me on Thanksgiving Day!
thank you, Dad!
i love you!
the new carpet will be installed on Wednesday.
the new furniture will be delivered the following
Wednesday. with all of the chaos, the Christmas boxes
will remain under the house until the carpet is installed.
i made a new Advent calendar this year.
it was not intended for the chandie, but that's where it landed.
it was the only safe place, since i was informed
that EVERYTHING is to be moved out of the
living room. the pictures, the wall clock and plates on the walls
in the living room and dining room are stored safely up in the
they tell me that the walls are going to vibrate!
(i have to break a promise to a blog friend today.
i was going to shoot an image of a metal plate display that
i sprayed white in the Summer of 2012.
when Mr D was off with the broken truck, he started packing
i will shoot it and post it in the first daylight after the
carpet is installed.)
the chandie was the perfect choice with the circumstances
the farm table needed a quick fix after last Sunday's
Thanksgiving dinner. i grabbed some of my favorite
French linen and ribbon and made this simple statement.
the five - minute - fix is kind of growing on me, especially as the
days of Advent gather to flourish!
we are celebrating Ben's first birthday today!
he is the happiest baby boy that i have ever met!
i call him Mr Smiles!
December 7, 1941.
before i go, i wish to link you to one of my dear blog friends, Noelle.
her post on this day says it all.
