I did finally get a tree and got the house decorated on Sunday. The house has just been a disaster with all the projects going on, but hopefully I'll get a good start on cleaning it this afternoon. I'm going to leave work as soon as our party is over today and won't come back until next week.
yeah, but what did you make your dad?

I stopped in at lowes for some supplies and they had some real trees left. And I snagged one and she loves it!!
And it doubles down right here... Look what kind of bargain skills I have
A buck????? A buck for a real tree? If only I had read this while I was in the cities, I would have gone running to see if a lowe's there had buck trees. Geesh. A tree would be great for cover for the quails....
I really really want a tree but in my tiny house that just doesnt work. I have a small iron tree that I hang vintage pink or silver ornaments on with some of my grandmothers glass garland, but the past few years with these cats, I haven't been able to do that either.
Love my cats, but one of the troubles is there is only one tiny 28 inch counter in my house that is cat safe, and the top of one bookshelf. No where to put stuff they shouldn't get into which includes plants, flowers, bread, butter, etc. they can get on the kitchen island, and everywhere else. dang cats.
