Technology Vacation...

...has ended.



When I looked at the date of my last post
I almost fell over.

I took a technology vacation, not by design but, by the sheer
fact that life just got too busy.



Oreo our Thanksgiving Vacation guest.

Christmas is here and it started well before
Thanksgiving.




As, soon as Halloween is gone I am well onto Christmas.
This is my season to shine!!!

I did a stint as a Christmas Designer for a local florist.
It was one of the best jobs I ever had.
We did Holiday designs and installations for businesses in the Chicagoland Area.
Can I just tell you...you have to love Christmas to
spend July through January emersed in tinsle and greens.





I find the cheer and happiness intoxicating.
It's not about the shopping deals or commercialism.
It's about good cheer and well wishes that we share with one another.
My kids have adopted the same philosophy and we have even
infected the Accountant.




Christmas lasts for more than one day.
It gets a whole "season".
We surround ourselves with happy thoughts and joyful
songs.  We remember to be charitable and kind to others. 
We remember to care about one another.


Looks like the right size according to the Accountant

Saying "Merry Christmas" is an opening
line most people can't refuse. 
You can say it to a complete stranger and more often than not
that person will smile and return the sentiment.
You can't do that in the middle of the summer heat.





So, as I put the finishing touches on my my house today
I am going to think of more reasons as to why
I feel so giddy.




Tomorrow I will share the photos of the "almost" finished product...
what my dear neighbor calls...
"the house that threw up Christmas".
