For the first time today it was really really cold where I live. Not sure what the temp was. I didn't look. Didn't care to know. I shivered all day long. Along with the cold, I have an upper respiratory infection too. So not having a good time today for sure.
But when I walked out on my front porch to let the dogs out the gate and noticed just how chilly it had gotten, I immediately thought "winter is here". And with that thought came thoughts of Christmas too. I need to get out the Christmas decorations and get the actual tree up, don't I?
Well, I think I'm going to wait until I'm feeling better. So maybe by the end of the week I can do just that. And with all of that came the realization that I rearranged the living room since last year and now the tree is going to be in a different spot. Hmmm...not sure I like that spot. But I do like the furniture where it is so I guess it'll have to do. My house is set back from the road in such a way that there isn't a need to put the tree in front of a window anyway. No one can see it from the road.
But I might put some candles in the windows just so I can see them when I am coming down the driveway home at night. I haven't really decorated a lot in the last few years. I've been preoccupied quite a bit it seems. Writing and editing have taken precedence for a while now. But not this year. I'm going all out. I WANT MISTLETOE. lol
Now why I want mistletoe I'm not really sure. It's pretty doubtful that some hot silver fox is going to walk into my house and conveniently stand under a sprig. So it must be just the idea of having it in my house and the romantic notion it represents. After all, I AM a romance writer. lol
Have you ever been truly caught under the mistletoe? Now I'm not talking about standing there and having your best friend push the dude of your dreams under it with you. I'm talking about not realizing there was mistletoe over your head and having the dude of your dreams see it and run over to get under it with you. OR neither of you knew it and BAM---Mistletoe Magic!
