Since I finished the question so quickly I’ll show you a few other things that happened around here today.
Jenny brought my filled Christmas socks back! I crocheted a chain and fastened it to the bottom of the cabinets with Command hooks. Then, just touching the tops of the socks so I wouldn’t feel what might be inside, I clothes-pinned them to the chain. I love how it turned out.
I moved the tree to the back window so everyone can see it at night as they drive or walk by. I have it sitting on a tray covered with a kitchen towel. I didn’t have any festive Christmas cloth to put on the tray and I’m not about to go shopping to buy one, so that will have to do. I went outside and looked in the window and it looks so happy and cheerful.
Look how cute the socks are hanging there on the chain. Some are lumpy and some are almost flat! I’m looking forward to opening them every morning in December. I feel like a little kid on Christmas morning.🎄I honestly have no clue as to what is inside any of them.
We got an email from the manager of the RV park. There is going to be a Christmas decorating contest that will be judged on December 23. They have two large gift baskets to give to the winners. We are not competing. We know that our lights are “small potatoes” compared to some of the spots. Some people have gone all out. We’ll have to take a walk around later in December and take some pictures and share them with you. This manager tries to make sure there are fun things happening all of the time. She even did a socially distanced Halloween bash for the children in the park. I thought that was very thoughtful of her because it’s not included as part of her job and sure makes a lot of extra work for her.
I think Dennis would just be just as glad not to have all of the stuff sitting around the RV and putting lights out, etc. But he humors me. He is a good man. All I have to do is suggest something and he jumps right up and takes care of it. I am a lucky, lucky woman and I know it.
We put a string of white Christmas lights out on the bush and stick-like tree in front of our spot. There aren’t a lot of lights, but I do love white lights and even just a few look festive. On the right in the picture, you can see the projector that our neighbors have set up on the side of their trailer with snowflakes that move around. You can also see a little bit of it in the picture above too.
I think Command strips are the best thing ever invented for RV’ers! I have a waterproof one on the outside next to the door, where I have this Merry Christmas sign hung.
I was watching the news this evening and things sure don’t sound good out there with COVID. It seems a lot of people ignored the recommendations to not gather in large groups for Thanksgiving and over 1 million people flew last Wednesday alone in the U.S. I can’t believe it. Is no one listening out there? I think we’re destined to have a lot of people sick in the next few weeks. A vaccine can’t come quickly enough for me. Are any of you going to get it as soon as you can? I hear a lot of people saying they don’t want to get it because they don’t trust it. I can’t say for sure what I’ll do, but right this moment I would gladly get it. I would like to have my life back. One doctor that I saw interviewed on Friday said no one is sure how long the immunity will last from the vaccine. It could be like a flu shot that we have to get every year.
I just keep reminding myself of the verse in the photo below. No matter what happens to me, I know where my final destination will be.
I hope each one of you stays healthy and takes all the precautions you can. I know most of you are. I also pray that your family is staying well too. Wishing you all a wonderful Monday.
Blessings and hugs,
