In the spirit of Christmas, The East Carolina (Purple and Yellow) and the NC State (red, white and black) stockings seem to be getting along peacefully.
The Tree. I must tell you this is an artificial tree that is at least 25 years old. I keep considering buying one of those newfangled, prelit trees, but once the old tree is decorated it looks pretty good, so at least for one more year, we'll keep it.
The centerpiece for the kitchen table. I tried to use what I had on hand. Pulled the candle holder out of a closet, folded a pretty piece of Christmas fabric to make a runner and put some matching gold star garland all around. I like it and didn't cost a cent.
Still have to make one stocking, but really WANT to make three more. Time is really getting short, but we will see.
Merry Christmas week to you.
PS: Today is the first day of Winter and the shortest day of the year. Isn't it comforting that the days will start getting longer tomorrow? I'm looking forward to getting off work and getting home while its still light outside!
