That sounds like a good idea. I hope it helps. Thoughts and prayers for you and your loved ones.

My daughter has her tree already up. She has an all white one and it is so pretty. I have to bring my potato ricer up to her and I will bring my camera. She also has an aluminum one with the colored wheel. It is an original one from the 60's. She has the original box and all the sleeves for the branches. Those silly trees have seen selling for some ridiculous money on eBay.

At least she is trying. She is getting into the Christmas spirit. She even is going to have the family get together for her husbands side of the family. Eachd year they hold it at a different home. Last year was her turn, but she had the flu and someone else had to hold it at their house. Nobody had better say, "You should be resting and not doing all of this." All I want to hear is "You look really good."

Don't forget to play some Christmas carol while you do it. Play happy ones. Frosty the Snowman, Here Comes Santa Claus, etc. Light and airy. That will definitely lighten the spirit in the house.

I just finished putting up and decorating the tree. Hubby hung the lights outside and decorated the deck. I don't feel like doing anything now. I'm running a bit of a fever with my cold. Beautiful day today. Mid 60's.

Curl up in front of the TV and get some rest. You deserve it.

Oh, Chopper, feel better soon!

Hmm. Haven't even thought about Chrismas decor, may need to get them out.
