Embracing the Spirit, or Not


I wonder.  Do you have any idea how difficult it is to embrace the Christmas spirit when the temperature is 80 degrees and sweat is dripping off the tip of your nose?

I am decorating for Christmas, hauling out the holly and hanging tinsel on the evergreen boughs.  Yes, you read that correctly.  Moi, the procrastinator of all procrastinators is ahead of the game, decorated for Christmas before the Thanksgiving turkey exits the freezer.  Damn I'm good.

It seemed to be a good idea to take advantage of our three week hiatus from western Pennsylvania's dreary skies and make advanced preparations for what is certain to be a hectic December.  The problem, it's sultry.  It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas feels more like A Tropical Heat Wave.   The Kid offered to dig out the holiday Cd's in an attempt to aid the cause.

I think I'll just opt for a shower.

Two beautiful shots. Love, love the header photo. Sorry you're suffering so with the weather. Poor you.

LOVE the banner shot (google Jonathon Olsen photographer - I first saw his work in an issue of Yankee Magazine).

Just think how nice it will be to return from Thanksgiving to an already decorated house. Crank down the air conditioning and put on a sweater!
