As the sun rose over our pasture I was filled with the need to decorate. We still do not have a tree but that was not going to stop me. I headed to the attic and pulled out a little lighted thing that resembles a tree.
I carefully hung the ornaments on it and placed the gifts underneath.
It is a funny quirky little thing, but my need to HANG ORNAMENTS has been filled. My husband laughed and asked if I was kidding. I found a simple pleasure in this question. Maybe I was but it felt good.
After all, I had made ornaments that I WANTED HUNG., so here is our quirky little tree, unlike anything we have ever had before. It isn't about the tree that makes Christmas, It's the spirit and togetherness, so if this happens to remain our tree it will just be something to look back at and giggle.
I made a delicious meal last night and thought I'd share how I created it. So yummy and warm. I served it with steamed broccoli and fresh bread. I hope you will try it and let me know if you enjoyed it as much as our family did.
I am a very lucky person who gets to live in heaven. I have the most wonderful husband of 20+ years and the most amazing two kids I have ever known. Not having animals growing up, I have certainly made up for that, My home is complete with horses, donkeys, dogs, cats, chickens, birds and fish. The sheep and rabbits have since left us.
