Welcome Christmas Shopping Season


Was I ready for the Christmas Shopping Season to start? Definitely not! I'm still lamenting the end of summer and the beginning of autumn.

This, however, is the longest official shopping season we can have. Thanksgiving was the earliest that it can be, November 22, meaning shoppers get a few precious extra days to surf the net and buy those perfect gifts for relatives and friends.

I am still trapped by the basement remodel and have not even begun to think of shopping and the holidays. Last evening I started on the final projects. I demoed the bathroom light and the ceiling fan in the main basement. I then installed a new ceiling fan, in a different location. We are still cleaning up the ceiling around the old fan's location in preparation for painting and covering it. The important aspect of the new fan is, no light unit. The ceiling in the basement is just low enough that a light unit becomes a hazard to taller people.

I do enjoy the sight of the Christmas trees in the malls and the stores. Well, I haven't actually been to a mall since the trees were installed. I need to get over to the Columbia Mall so that I can take my annual image of the poinsettia tree. I always find the tree to be stunning.

Well, there are some 28 shopping days remaining until the big day! 

Keep smiling!
