makin' ornaments-is it really christmas?


veggin'.....enjoying the 70 degree pre-christmas weather.
daddy & daughter....
the tree in all it's artificial glory. (no tree killin here!!!)
maddie, the bar mitzvah-attending queen...
more ornaments...
veggies...hummus...homemade guac....simpsons...fabric...perfect night.
so we put up the tree and decorated this past saturday. it was abnormally warm... it felt wrong putting up the tree, like we were prepping for christmas in july. we had all the windows open in the house and it was 70 degrees. but we did make gingerbread pancakes and go to the new east nashville record store 'Groove', so it was really a pleasant and laid back day.
maddie and i had a simpsons night, had 'finger foods' for dinner, vegged out and made christmas ornaments out of scraps I had lying around...they turned out great and were a great addition to the tree! i love nights like that.
i had a little cluster of etsy orders to get out, but things are slowing down...i guess it's too close to the big day and people were ordering for gifts. i have no idea it's christmas right now. i have no money, the weather is bi-polar, i'm slacking on making everyone's gifts and it just doesn't feel like christmas. blah. i'm having a major case of the bah-humbugs. it'll pass.

i was feelin' you 'til we got our tree decorated. and it's getting colder now, so that helps. if you need some extra inspiration...read dickens' a christmas carol. it's my book club book this month, and i'm almost through it. and it's kind of astounding. even though we all know the story.
