Yippeee! Today’s the last day before my parents put the Christmas tree up in here. It will block the sun from coming in of course but that’s a small sacrifice for the trade off of having a tree in my library. Unfortunately, I won’t get my choo choo train under the tree – at least for a while. Seems that’s a hot item in the stores this year…..but my Mom is keeping an eye out and even if we have to take the presents out from under the tree long enough to “install” the train – no biggie!
After all, I can – if I really want to – be incredibly patient. Oh sure, I want what I want when I want it but I CAN sit back and wait. Sometimes. And a train under the tree can wait. Most of all, it will be fun to smell all the familiar smells of the Christmas decorations all over the house and seeing my stocking hanging by the fireplace.
Mom will be taking lots of pix of this whole thing so you’d better be prepared for some after this weekend! I wonder if my stocking will have any lumps in it right away or if I’ll have to wait before there are lumps to wonder about until closer to Christmas? Those mysterious lumps always turn out to be toys or a new kind of treat. Time will tell.
You can bet though that today – I’ll be enjoying my last sunny library chair nap before the tree goes up…..besides, I have plenty of sunny nap spots in this big house but only ONE tree inside it!!!
Happy Friday Friends………Sammy
