Christmas . . . in July

Photo by TinyApartmentCrafts

I am exhausted. I had company over tonight.

My eyelids are heavy. I could easily lull myself to sleep with the sound of my own typing. Even the dog is snoring on the floor beside me. But it feels good to have invited people into my home.

BUT. Before I tell you about that (later this week) I need to tell you that today I bought my second Christmas present. I saw a good deal and snapped it up for my Christmas closet. While I am not a fan of the department stores dragging out the Christmas trees during the second week of August (doesn’t it seem to get earlier every year?) I am a fan of thinking ahead and saving time, money, and budget by forecasting my Christmas list and buying throughout the year.

My hope: that I will have my list completed by December 1st this year.

More on Christmas later. For now, I am seeing visions of sugar plums dancing in my head…

(Come back Monday to see who won the contest.)
