Without the Holiday Homes tour to prod me into decorating, I have nothing done. I have removed the so-called easter decorations (Alice and Humpty Dumpty tchotchkes) but that's not much is it? I adore my Christmas decorations but it is a real pain to get them all out.
I don't have a wreath because the boy scout didn't come around this year. The boy scout's mother is selling succulent wreaths on Facebook and, while beautiful, they look too heavy to hang and are very expensive. I may cobble something together from vines in the yard. They are no longer dusty since we've had a couple decent rain storms.
Well, Ernest is back! So I roped him into helping get a tree. It's amazing what you can fit into his little car. He is so happy to have the chance to drive a car again!
This is where the tree is right now.
Handy's birthday is tomorrow, so I need to hunt down a recipe. He decided on Boston Cream Pie, not because Ernest was coming from Boston, but because he remembered getting slices of it as a child. Since Frank (the baking one) is working and Ernest is gallivanting around in his car, it will probably be up to me to make the cake.
Tree and cake are my two goals for the next two days.
I am a little concerned about how Tiny will react to the tree. She is such a curious cat.
