That Light in the Southern Sky, Part 2

Believe it or not, this is LAYER 2 of my tree!!....Oh, I know..YOU might say, "It looks done", YOU say, "It looks fine", YOU SAY, "Wow, YOU ARE ONE CRAZY WOMAN!"

Well, that may be true.

But I have much work to do and I'm so very behind schedule, so I must get OFF my BEHIND and get to work...kiss kiss.

Of Thanksgiving Day's Past....

I miss the Turkey Day marathons of my favorite show. There was nothing like spending the day cooking your favorite meal and watching bad movies being skewered with precision.... I miss those days...Here's to you Mystery Science Theater 3000, for making us laugh at bad movies again and again.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!! May the only turkeys you encounter this holiday week be the ones you decide to stick a utensil into (unless that also happens to be a then..well...all is fair in love and war...and all that jazz).

That Light in the Southern Sky...Ummm ...Well....

We started this holiday season with a Christmas Tree conundrum in our household. I was TOLD to look for a replacement tree this year. THIS was after I was told we would be replacing our lights with the energy efficient LED strands...'sigh'.....
My tree....was purchased nearly 20 years ago. It is a VERY nice artifical one that has to be put together branch-by-branch. This tree works well, because the branches hold MANY ornaments and lots of lights. I short-shifted my light quantity last year because most of my light sets had seen better days.
I told my better half (and today I use that term loosely because he's been appearing on the "Naughty" list more than the "Nice" one lately), that IF we were NOT switching to LED lights (a look I LIKE, but he does NOT) or BUYING a new tree (the only ones I've LIKED near the $300 price range), then I would have to have NEW REGULAR lights .....regardless.
So....while we were at Wally World....we bought TEN boxes....AND I'M STILL SHORT!!!!!!! This is with two more extra sets of clear lights I found mixed in with the Halloween stuff....So, I wait some more and try and DECORATE THE BOTTOM of my tree until I get MORE lights later on today.
The tree is 7' tall.....and I've put over 1000 lights on it!!!! HOW IN THE HECK DID I DO THAT????
Take the journey with me....This will transform into something beautiful...I PROMISE!
