But no mind, it is beyond lovely in every aspect. Of the Things I get to do today, giving my two plants a shower bath is up next. After all we have company coming on Wednesday and Thursday and Friday, and all the natural blings must look their best.
Some folks really gussy up for every holiday. I heard of a friend's wife who hauls out 16 boxes of Halloween decor each October. Oh, my! For Christmas we do outside lights so that our Swedish neighbors across the street who have two small boys will not have to explain about the "older couple" across from them who for some reason are not in the mood for Christmas. And we do a tree and set out a few other pretty little fancies we've had for years. But we don't have even six boxes of decorations for Christmas.
