It's hard to believe Christmas is just around the corner when we're wearing shorts and flip flops. Tomorrow Ralph flies to New Jersey to pick up his car and drive it back to Florida. Finally everything we own will be in one place. He'll be home Sunday evening.
Meanwhile, Striper and I will be off our leashes for a couple days. I have plans to paint an old ratty dresser I've wanted to paint for years and I also want to finish baking and getting packages ready to ship to the kids and grandkids.
The past few weeks I have been lobbying for a live Christmas tree and Ralph has opposed it. However, we heard on the local news earlier this week that SW FL is being cautioned about infestation of spider mites and aphids on Christmas trees coming into this area. So, now I am opposed, as well. I didn't even use live greens in my wreaths.
Here are a few pictures of today's projects:
