One of These Years We'll Get-It-Together (or Not)

After reading Barbara's Christmas 101 eMo I can sympathize. Now for the second year in a row Paul hasn't found the plastic tub with the "good" ornaments. These are the ones I sorted out years ago that were going to be the ones we'd always use. He found the snowman collection and other assorted big decorations but not the elusive ornament crate. All he found was what we put on last year. The shoebox full of Hershey collectible ornaments and some odds and ends. The tree is nicely lit with lots of white mini lights and the strand that softly twinkles, tucked deep inside the branches. There are also the large colored twinkle lights and as always, my favorites, the bubble lights of my childhood memories. They are newer ones now but all the same, special. An angel stands at the top holding glowing candles in her hands. Paul found her at a flea market . He was so thrilled with his find.
I'm not going to fret about it. In the spring there will be even more of a reason to get that garage in order. It is definitely in need of an intervention!

Hmmm....I wonder if that's why the neighbor's tree fell on our one shed a few months ago. So that we'd have to replace it with a bigger one, and that now some of the garage stuff can go in there! ...and who says God doesn't work in mysterious ways. Hee... hee....
(Of course, we've yet to remove the old dented in, tarp covered one, and order the new one.)
