Things are finally starting to happen around here. Hallelujah! We (me and hubby) left for the shopping mall yesterday morning at 9:30am and returned home last night at 10:00pm. The majority of our shopping has been done. Whew! Close call. Never will I wait to shop this late in the season again!!!
The Christmas tree is up. Most of the ornaments have been hung. Just a few more crystal ornaments to go and it will be complete. Here is a picture of my tree taken early Wednesday morning, sans crystal. As you can see, my tree lacks glitz and shine without them. I will try to snap a new picture once the tree has been completed.
We currently have a really nasty storm passing through the islands. The heavy rain and wind started last night and is expected to continue throughout most of the day. Many areas have been particularly bombarded, my area included. We are currently under flash flood warning, heavy rain, and expecting wind gusts of up to 50mph. Many of our schools have been closed. I love nesting in this kind of weather. I plan to continue my cleaning and organizing, finishing the decorations on the Christmas tree, and most importantly, taking some time to sit back, relax, and enjoy the holiday season.
