We are “décored” I announce with a smile.
The old cookie tray is filled with tops for ornaments I have broken. I saved these over a great many years. Imagine how many ornaments that might be if this year I broke three. Now everything is put away.
The tree is done. The few animals we have left have taken up residence under its branches, and we replaced the wreath. I who hates fake anything has a fake tree, fake animals, and fake wreath. I truly dislike the thought of cutting down live things just to decorate my home for a Christian holiday.
There’s a gaggle of birds on the TV Shelf….remind me to photograph them please, and we have transferred Milaka’s wreath-ribbon to the new wreath. A date has been picked for a tiny gathering. Deserts and wassail with coffee from our rocket coffee pot. Gotta photograph that too. We are waiting for daughter 1 to call, and I dearly wish daughter 2 lived nearer.
We are “décored” enough to make us both happy.
