In order to stave off stagnation and dementia, I have decided to have a new plan for every day of December. I especially want Tommy involved since he mostly sits. I can and do find things to do.
Tomorrow, I will finish the door wreath and we will put up the red curtain lights I bought. This was not something I planned, but I saw red ones and flipped for them. Tommy will have to get out his 50 ft extension cord. Together, we will get it installed on the front of his ramp. It may be gaudy or look strange, but we are doing it. We will put out the outdoor poinsettia that I bought for $5 at the yard sale.
We will get the wreath done and hung. I bought a greenery wreath and am busy putting big red balls and poinsettias and such on it. The wreath I bought last year looks so blah that it is unclear what it is from the road. It does not have greenery. Or reddery!
Okay, we have something to do for the next three days. The heater/ac fan made a horrendous racket two weeks ago. Then, it made a little noise. When we drove to Cullman, the noise was so awful that we could not talk. Finally, when we turned off the motor at a fast food joint, it did not make a sound when we started the car. So, no air at all, no heat or ac. It has been very inconvenient. The worst part is cracking the windows a bit when we are suffocating. I am not so sure what we can get done for Christmas projects.Tommy has a doctor appointment for a toenail that is hanging. It hurts me to look at it. That is our project one day.
However, we have a few things to do: put up the 3 ft. tree and decorate, finish spraying the mum, making a Gingerbread house. I bought it just for him. I try to get Thomas involved because he really does enjoy these things. We don't have a Advent calendar. I would like one that has little doors and is wooden. I imagine I will just go in and open a cabinet door, eat whatever I see, and call it good.
Christmas music will be played every night. He enjoys the songs, too. I may read him some Christmas stories and poems.
We want to go to a light show, the kind where people stay in the car and drive through. I do have other ideas. I want to make it a wonderful Christmas for him.
Right now, I am getting rubber gloves and the carcass of a turkey, a hen, and a turkey breast. He is going to remove the meat. The house smells delicious.
What are your plans? Do you have the decorating finished?
