Christmas Spirit

Monday, November 19, 2018

It's been a tough couple of weeks for not only me but my fellow co-workers. A little over a week ago I was off of work due to me being ill. While I was at home trying to get well, A co-worker died from a seizure; having never had seizures before in his life. Today we attended his funeral. But this past Friday I got permission from my supervisor to be able to decorate our tree that is behind our building. Hopefully it will lighten the mood of my fellow co-workers and put them in the Christmas spirit. I have to add 2 more strands of garland and the lights. I Enlisted the help of my uncle who climbed the ladder for the top part, unfortunately it was not tall enough for him to put a star up there. But, I don't think that tree had ever been decorated. So I say not bad for a first time out! My leftover ornaments went to that pitiful looking tree in the background. Now I know some people are thinking, what about Thanksgiving! And I haven't forgotten about it, however this was a non-food activity that I thoroughly enjoyed. I will be busy this Thursday and my decorated tree will be but a distant memory😁😉

    Sorry for your loss. Decorating the tree is a lovely gesture. It looks great. Too early? I make my Sweetie wait until at least the day after Thanksgiving, although there was that year that Sweetie and our grandson put up decorations the day after Halloween. Since the neighbor across the street always starts Christmas on the first day of November, they determined it was good idea. I just want to get through one holiday at a time.

    I’ve got all my veggies prepped and I have plans to have lots of healthy sides to my dinner. I’m not responsible for dessert—not sure if that’s a good thing or not.

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
