The window frames on the side of the house are metal ..........so I hung the wreaths on the shutters instead.
( which took double the wreaths )
I'm not finished - still have a couple of more windows to do - and I have to figure out how to do the upstairs one on the slanted roof in the front - without dangling out and risk falling flat on my butt.
It was a really windy day - and I was up on a ladder with the wreaths whacking me on the head constantly while I tried desperately to hammer nails in ! I'm telling you people must think of me as the " crazy lady "
It needed a little snow out there - it snowed in Chicago - in Ontario and in the Maritmes - so East - West and South of us........like we were in a little bubble or something - I decorated with flip flops on !
And so I went to bed thinking " now I need a light dusting of snow - please "
And when I awoke ....................
Oh my gosh - is that all it takes to get what you want?
Do you think it was the " please " ?
Because if it's as simple as that - I have a slew of things I want
Now I'd like peace on earth............please
and while I'm at it
Now I'd like to look 10 years younger...............please
and what the hell - if it's not pushing things too much
Now I'd like to win a lottery - a huge one.........please
( if I can only have one - I'll take peace on earth because I really just can't absorb anymore of the grief and horror that's happening all over the world - especially my beloved Paris )
The snow is melting as I type but it'll be back
Lord knows it'll be back ( no matter what I want ) and really there's nothing like the first snow fall - even if it's a bare minimum - there's nothing like it at all - it's pure magic.
Have a wonderful day everyone !
To all my American friends - hope you have the most wonderful of Thanksgivings !
