What a week! The week started with a faulty heating system at work. My office was 58 F on Monday and Tuesday. By Wednesday it was in the low 60's. They were still working on it Friday. I'm hopeful of having a reasonably warm office when I get back to work on Monday. We've had the normal sport practices, but this week was also Kiddo's Christmas program and then one evening of Christmas shopping for the Angel tree at work. I wish the weekend was going to be slower, but it's a swim meet weekend, with 7 AM warm ups. I'll need to go drag Kiddo out of bed in few minutes.
With all that going on, it's been hard to get into the Christmas spirit around here. No tree up yet. No packages wrapped yet. Since today's Foto Finish theme is holiday decor, I had to go looking at previous year's pics, since there is definitely no decorating going on here at the moment.
This is actually a very small part of the holiday display at my sister's house last year. She has a significant collection of all things gingerbread related. You can just make out the gingerbread baker in the background. My sister goes all out for the holidays, she decorates almost every room in her house. Me, I do good most years to get a tree up.
I'm hopeful that our tree will go up this afternoon. Things should slow down some this week. If it doesn't, things will definitely start looking up the week after since we'll start our holiday vacation. I hope your holiday preparations are in full swing. Take a break, grab a cup of hot chocolate and hop over to Cat Patches for some quick holiday cheer.
