Loose Threads: Twenty Four Days Until Christmas

Twenty Four Days Until Christmas

Tomorrow is December 1 already, and we still have some Thanksgiving leftovers hidden in the back of the refrigerator. Because Thanksgiving Day fell late in November, we have less time to get things ready for Christmas. We still have time so there's no need to panic yet...right? The outside lights are all finished, and the family room Christmas tree is up. It has lights and a few ornaments and will be finished soon. Tomorrow I'll put the blue tree up in the dining room.

Yesterday we went downtown to the Indiana State Museum to listen to a Christmas concert given by the Circle City Ringers. I love listening to handbell music. My son has several hand bell pieces being published by Beckenhorst Press. The Circle City Ringers played Wizards in Winter by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. You can hear it on my playlist in the side bar. I think any group that even attempts that piece is awesome.

The museum is all decorated for Christmas, too. This is Santa's mailbox.

This was just a nice spot where you could sit and enjoy the Christmas tree and listen to the sounds of Christmas.There might be some time tomorrow for some stitching while I regroup. I hope so because I'm about to finish up another big project. Have a good evening.

Looks like you are well on your way to being ready for Christmas. I just dragged the tree and two boxes of ornaments upstairs. We will put them up tomorrow after school. So you are farther along than I am.

We put up Christmas tree last Friday as our family tradition (the next day of Thanksgiving), but we have not done any outside lights yet. So you are way ahead of me too! (lol)
I love hand bell sound. It's very Christmasish too!!

Hope you will have some time for stitching your project this week.

Thanks your comment!
