Have you been feeling fenced in lately??? We have had snow on the ground for some time now,
just the beginning of our 6-7 months of winter here in northern WI. It's exactly this kind of weather that makes me a bit crazy. I have to find things to occupy my hands., keep me busy.
The movement of squeezing bough clippers to cut branches of greens to do a bit of decorating has turned into a struggle, a chore, a pain rushing up my arm and involving every finger.
The woods is full of Balsam, Pine, Cedar and Winterberries, just waiting to be transformed into beautiful wreaths, garland and swags. Will the fire warm my hands enough to work?
Maybe using a wire form to stuff full of branches~~~
no, I don't like that at all...
or a pitiful excuse of a wreath that consists of boughs and berries wrapped around a twig wreath from the past. Oh my, oh my, how sad looking. Maybe some lights attached and hung on the door?
This poor little wreath definitely needs a haircut!
I definitely need to keep at it and come up with some acceptable outdoor decor for our doors, deck and barn. The family will be here soon to celebrate an early Christmas together.
Since I was unable to deck the halls and trim the trees for a couple of years, I am so anxious to out-do myself this year,....
just for them.
So, when I'm finished with all of my pent-up excitement over the true meaning of Christmas, I will show you my success and failure.
Carry On and Share Your Excitement As Well
Always, thank you for taking time out of your busy day to visit.
I appreciate every second of your time.
As my Grandmother used to always remind me:
" Use it or loose it, but don't abuse it."
Until next time, I now turn into an ' elf,' with work to do.
