I have so much holiday decorations stored in containers. I doubt I will ever use again. Hey, I am getting older and the appeal of changed things out every month or so wears me out. Oh, I will do some, but not like I once did. That stage of my life is pretty much over.
But here is what I have done for now.
The front porch got a few little mum plants.
I like the October late afternoon shadow.
Little Teddy has a lot to do guarding the neighborhood.
A small display on the coffee table.
A small display on one of the end tables.
Do you have spots that no one ever sees?
But I still decorate it. I doubt I am the only
one that notices. I figure that is ok
it is my house and I enjoy it.
Another display on a end table people seldom see,
But I do and I like it.
The picture is of my Grandma Dot.
My The Beauty of the
Aunt Carol Hutch
She is the reason I decorate in my kitchen area
I love this hutch. Every day she reminds me
of my dear Aunt Carol who loved me
And I loved her dearly.
I miss her a lot.
No matter the season, she is beautiful.
I would love her even if I didn't decorate.
The maple wood is so gorgeous.
Not a scratch on her!
My kitchen is small, and it is hard to get a full view
of the Aunt Carol Hutch.
But, you can see she is outstanding.
A few weeks ago I was finishing up the decorating.
I was on a high ladder getting the dusting and cleaning done.
When I went down from the ladder I missed the last step. .
Well, my balance is not that great, I fell.
I already have a leg and hip that is injured.
This time I sprained my foot,
and hurt my leg and hip.
My children were up set with me that I was on a ladder.
But, like I told them.. . .I am use to doing things
myself. When dusting or cleaning needs to be
done I do it. I am not going to stop and call one of
them to come "right now" to clean and dust.
It just won't happen, so I have got to pay more
attention to what I am doing when being on a ladder.
For me it is hard growing older. I am a "doer." I always
have been. Now as I am aging I can't "do" like I
once did. I am slower, and I have to be careful.
What a life!
Now don't get me wrong. . .I love life. . .I just don't
like some of my limitations right now. And the
truth is limitations will increase and not decrease.
I have to remember there are blessings to
every stage of life.
Have a wonderful day!
