Busy, busy, busy!!

It sure seems I am staying busy, busy, busy for the past couple of weeks and now it is almost Christmas! Last minute running errands, finishing up doctor appointments (1 left) for the year, refilling meds, paying bills, gifts finished, (now to just get them in the mail), got my yard and plants taken care of before the freeze that is hitting tonight, all faucets covered...places fixed for the outside kitties to keep them safe and warm! Clothes are in the dryer, house is clean, groceries are bought and I did get to watch the Cowboys win today!!!! Hooray!!!
All my outside decorations are up! Finished my tree inside too! No girls climbing it this year, I think they are either too old or too fat to even try! (LOL) Here's a photo of the tree in process and finished. I did a collage to show some of the ornaments in this one. The chain is all sparkly with glitter and is so pretty with the tree lights shining on it at night!

I know it is a rather large tree for on the table, but.....the "girls" leave it alone that way! Plus with the cards, etc under it they stay away from it all together!
Well, I think winter will finally get here....we started out at 62 F this morning, supposed to get up to 72 before the front came through knocking it down into the 30's for tonight with a wind chill in the 20's and teens for in the morning! Not to get above 45F tomorrow and back into the 20's tomorrow night. So am glad I got my Hibiscus all mulched up and covered with a cardboard box. I certainly hope I can keep it through the winter as Nina bought it and planted it for me for my birthday this year! :)
Guess I had better finish the clothes in the dryer and feed all my animals and get hunkered down for another night of football! Think I'll fix some soup and cornbread too! Will chat more later! Keep on making all those wonderful memories to share! Luv, Mat


  1. Gosh, I got tired just reading all that you did! Your tree is lovely. I have a table tree too. Mine will go up tomorrow, as I needed to rest today.

    I hope your hibiscus makes it through the winter. Mine did not. I tried two years in a row, then gave up and planted Rose of Sharon instead. They are both in the same plant family.

    I love your new web background. Your kitties look so adorable admiring Mr Snowman. I am at work, so gotta go. You have a marvelous evening. Enjoy your football. Hugs, Edna B.

  2. Haha, I already thought to see something I know on your bloglayout, and I was right, some things of mine are used.Lovely look!
    Oh my, you were as busy as me, this weekend! Gosh, it poops you out, doing all the Christmas decorations and the work around it, but so satisfying when it´s all done!!!
    You better take a day of rest and then get started with all things to be done still.
    Hmmm, who´s talking=
    Have a great start of the week!
