We have leftovers. Was the food pretty good? Yes. Still, we have leftovers.
We have also started putting out our Christmas decorations. Last year, I thought they were up too early-- so this year we are starting a little later and doing it in a more gradual manner.
Thus far, we have only one real Poinsettia [sitting on the table in the entryway] and existing items decorated with some of our many "forever" poinsettias.
I am not a big fan of "forever" flowers unless of the dried variety, however I do love the brass bucket that holds our red berries arrangement [year round] and the "forever" Poinsettias [at Christmas] that used to sit on the fireplace.
Earlier this year, I moved the bucket to the dining room [quite frankly it looks nice in both locations] when I wanted to place a new plant on the fireplace, so I have no one to blame but myself. Once the stockings are hung, perhaps I won't miss it so much.
Did you start your Christmas shopping? I am a little bummed out that this morning I noticed an item I wanted- went up in price because it was no longer being sold by the same retailer. Snoozed, I lost. Other than that, I am in pretty good spirits. News from Washington? Odd.
