A new Norfolk Island Pine .....


It's hard to believe that Christmas is only two and a half weeks away. I was just getting used to the idea of fall. Luckily, I don't do that much for the Holidays so I'm not stressing out over everything that hasn't been done. I put up a few outside decorations earlier in the week and will probably decorate inside (except for the tree) this weekend. I usually wait until the middle of the month to put up the tree since it tends to be in the way.


I did get a small Norfolk Island Pine to take the place of the giant I gave away. It's only about a foot tall, so I should be able to move it around easily. I wonder how many years it will be before it becomes too large for the house.

We've finally gotten most of the leaves up. I think one more day of raking should be it until time for spring clean-up. We have gotten extremely dry. We only had 1/10 inch of rain in the whole month of November. So far this month we've had less than 1/10 inch. I have some daffodil bulbs that need to be planted, but the ground is so hard I can't dig the holes to plant them. Will it be OK to plant them later?

The clothes basket is overflowing, so I'd better get some in the washer. Housework is never done.

I do like your decorations. I always have laundry in the basket!

Love your typeset. Yes, leaves, leaves, leaves. We are in an urban area, but its very leafy here too. Have a good holiday. Dianne

Good luck with the new Norfolk pine. We also did not do a lot of decorating this year, but we do have a smaller tree and lots of candles which we burn nightly while watching holiday movies.
