Merry Christmas!


Many years ago, I realized that it was silly for me to decorate at Christmas. With no children around, it was only for myself, and it became more bother than it was worth. With my champagne taste and beer budget, I realized that the type of decor I like just wasn’t possible, so I chose to do none at all. There are plenty of decorations everywhere else for me to enjoy, and I partake of those opportunities all over town, and neighboring towns.

Be that as it may, my S.O. decided he wanted to have a little decor in the house this year. So I opted to buy a live plant of some sort, along with some poinsettias, and do a small scene. I liked the Rosemary plants available shaped in the conical tree shape, but I thought they were a bit pricey. I found some poinsettias and  this lovely Norfolk Pine tree on sale, so I snagged that instead. (I’ll put it outdoors most of the year in some shade in a container, and water it as often as I can remember. Most likely it won’t make it, but it will be fun for a while. It will give an unusual shape in my yard of natives and tropicals.) I ran to Garden Ridge and grabbed a few sale decorations, and I was done.

So here’s my holiday decor, in its entirety. Merry Christmas and more importantly, peace and inner prosperity to all!
