The House Without A Christmas Tree

That would be my house - well almost. If Sam and Lindley had not come over and helped by getting the trees and decorations out of the attic, down the stairs, and set up and decorated, there would be no tree for Doikmas.

I'll blame it on too much travel and too much to do. All of a sudden, it's the week before Doikmas and no tree - should I even bother? Of course the answer was yes, but it would involved a lot of getting and moving and decorating - and the job kept looming larger and larger.

But once Sam and Lindley arrived and seemed eager to help, it was all a breeze. Sam put the tree together (okay, so it's a four-foot tree with two parts - it still has to be taken out of the box and assembled) and Lindley put on the ornaments. Soon my house had two functional trees - one in the living room where we usually have Doikmas, and one in the den where we have moved Doikmas this year (much more room for all the people).

This year's trees are small. They always look bigger in the picture on the box. I'm not sure if I like them or not. But the important thing is that for this year, they are up and ready for action.

Let Doikmas commence!!

Thankful today for: Sam and Lindley putting up the Christmas trees; Steve's safe travel home
