It's getting to look a lot like Christmas


all around our house. Here is our front porch all lit for the holidays.
This seems to be the season for light problems. We've blown fuse after fuse and lights on an off, timers not working so we no lights or lights at 3:30 pm. The inside has been no better. I've rewired the stairs garland twice since we put it up in November.

But, despite it all, I love the whole thing. The cats and I sit often on the front porch, lights aglow (with any luck) and listen to the Christmas music.

Happiest of Holidays to you all. And remember, only 5 more shopping days til Christmas!

Hi Jules
I had to sign up for a blog just to answer you! Now I have to figure out what to do with it! Love your porch as well as all the other decorations you have been posting. Also sweet picture of the cat. I remember you saying before how he likes to drink from the fountain. Miss you on the MB. Hugs!

That is a beautiful display. Not feeling any shopping pressure here, finished it yesterday. Now of course there is food shopping which we want to leave to the last minute to make sure it is fresh. I do love Christmas, even the crowds. Keep smiling.

Hi Jules,
Your porch is beautiful! That has got to be fun to just relax and hang out on.

Have a good day.

That's beautiful! This is the best time of year, isn't it? We can sit out on our porches w/o sweating to death, even have to wear a sweater now and again.
Merry Christmas! And if you get a minute read "A Very Skunky Christmas" on my blog. Sure to give you a chuckle.

It's gorgeous, doll! But then of course it would be, since you have a flair for such things! It reminds me of a few moments I've spent on that porch, and I long to be there again with you. Soon, I hope!
