Last year I started photographing our cabin after dark with all the lights on, wreaths hanging in the windows, and Christmas lights on the porch. For some reason I really like the look and decided to do it again this year. I had a neighbor call and left me a message saying she could seem the Christmas lights on our porch this year from her second story bathroom. Our home is so far off the road no one can see it, but apparently if you get high enough you can see the lights.
I’m getting excited about Christmas, my shopping is done, gifts are wrapped, and I’m ready for all the hustle and bustle to come to an end. Hubby and I went shopping yesterday and I must say the store shelves are picked clean. I think most people shop online anymore and stores just don’t stock like they used too
While we were at Menards we noticed they had most of the artificial trees down already and had them replaced with lawn furniture. How crazy is that? Snows on the ground and the stores are decorating for spring. I’m just amazed at how things have evolved over the years. Why are we always ready to get to the next season or holiday when we haven’t even finished the one we’re in yet?
There’s days I think if the internet would crash and the grid go down people might enjoy what they have at that moment a little more. Life is just to fast paced anymore. This makes me sound old but what happened to the good ole’ days?
I know families back in the day that did all their Christmas shopping on Christmas eve. That certainly can’t happen now, there’s nothing left to pick from. Target was already marking down all there wrapping paper. I guess if you’re looking for some good deals you can get them before Christmas now. Has anyone else noticed the same things I have?
