Yesterday Brylee and I went out to the local shops, on the hunt for a round Christmas Wreath for the front door.
No luck here in Cambridge.
Sooooo.... this morning I am taking both dogs into Animates in Te Rapa, Hamilton for a groom.
While they are there, I will pop into the Christmas Heirloom Shop in The Base and see what they have.
All going well... I will find one that's lovely.
Then I will pop home to pick up Keera from Kindy, then go back to Hamilton to pick up the dogs.
I'm asking them to clip them VERY SHORT, so they are more comfortable over summer. Right now, they both look like sheep!
While there, I will be picking Lacy up so she can spend some time with us and Keera.
Last night, Griffin got home from his school Drama performance... looking like this:
After dinner, I got Stew to put up our one and only string of outside Christmas lights. I hope to get more some time... but probably not this year.
ABOVE: Not exactly spectacular at all, but it's something!
ABOVE: I AM happy with my 'picture' window display.
ABOVE: My neighbour's lights, so pretty. They flash and change colours. That's what I'd like one day.
Yeah.... my outside string of lights sucks. The photo shows how INSIGNIFICANT they are. Bummer.
Well... I had a good morning!
Got some housework done, then took the dogs to the groomers. Then I went to the Christmas Heirloom Shop at The Base and found a front door Christmas Wreath and some new lights for the big tree.
I've picked up Lacy and she is going to put up the big tree while I go back into Hamilton later to pick up the dogs. Oh and of course, she will look after Keera so I don't have to take her in with me too.
Now. The new door wreath. I was so tempted to go with a blue and white one... but I resisted and got this:
ABOVE: I went for it because it was a bit different, and more a traditional colour way.
What do you think of it?
I might add a few more 'bits' to it myself yet.
Well... Lacy got all the decoration unpacked, so I could put them on the tree tonight. I found some blue stuff for the wreath:
ABOVE: Blue added... now it looks more like MINE.
ABOVE: I have a little tree for the dining table. It has little green and blue lights, but ya can't hardly see them in this photo.
ABOVE: And finally (for now) a cute wee dancing tree. He sings "Rockin' around the Christmas Tree" and dances and sways. He's for the kids to enjoy.
Ikkkk... ate too much tonight. First time in weeks I've done that and regretted it.
Live and learn.
Another day tomorrow.
