Not at all how I envisioned, but I did the very best I could with the very little energy I have in me today. I remarked that it's a good thing Stewey isn't here to inspect my efforts, because I'm fairly sure he would have pulled out his little valise, fished around for his official things, and stamped a big fat VETOED on my forehead.
But I am happy with it all, and despite the fact that there are no Jim Shores or no big huge tree with a whimsical top hat deciration...it is Christmasy nonetheless.
The chicken sisters are now directly in front of me and will be more closely supervised:
The three little trees that used to live on the front porch at Chez Spinster now stand in for what once was the official spinster tree:
All of my stitchy things are hung in the entranceway:
And from the other side:
And my favorite part of the entire mess...outside lights on a remote control:
I've got an experimental shepherd's pie in the oven. I took Magoo's ground beef stuffing, corn pudding, green bean casserole, and carrots and topped it with the leftover mashed potatoes and cheese.
It will either be very tasty, or we're having pizza for dinner.
After a bite to eat and a hot scrubby shower, I am going to hit the Happy Chair for some Christmas stitching if it kills me. I am going to pick up that LJP Christmas Quilt and give it my very best try. Pray for me, Dearies. If last night is any indication I'm going to need all the help I can get!
Here's hoping that your Sunday was winderfully swell! Did you play with decorations and stitching today too? Come tell me all about it!
