Wow, two posts in one day. I am feeling the need to document. I had such an incredible lazy weekend that I'm all a-flutter. I must sleep!! But not until I rave about the joys of tree fakery.
No dirt, no bugs, no water threat to the hardwood floors, no drying tree posing a fire hazard (Yes, it happened to my mother when she was eight I believe - house 1/2 burnt down from a Christmas tree catching on fire. I've seen the photo evidence, although I don't remember exactly how it started). Granted, I think I need to walk around a tree farm (one is just two blocks away) to get the scent of the holidays, but I am so excited about the new tree. We normally don't put the tree up until later due to the drying tree hazard, but this year, up the day after Thanksgiving! We trimmed the tree, drank hot toddies, and listened to Christmas music - ah a lovely romantic evening...sigh.
