It’s a rainy day here this morning. I went out on the patio to see if I could find something worth photographing. Because I can usually find something that appeals to me.
As you can see, it is gray and drizzling.
I don’t see anyone outside. They’re all in their warm cozy apartments drinking coffee, reading, or watching the news. Or maybe preparing for the big meal.
After my brief foray outside, I too will stay inside.
Pondering Christmas Decorating:
Last night I began digging around in my Christmas decor I had stored inside a big plastic tub. I took most everything out and set it on the dining table and just stared at it.
Then I attempted to put a few things on the mantel. But something was off. I could feel it but didn’t know what it was.
This morning when I woke up, I knew what it was. I’m missing some of the decor I usually put out at Christmastime. And without them, I’m kind of lost and not sure what to do.
I can of course decorate with what I have, which is quite a bit of stuff. But those bits of decor were kind of a hallmark of my holiday items.
My apartment is much bigger now that I’ve moved, so I have a lot more space to decorate if I want.
I got my flashlight and went outside to the storage closet directly across from my patio doors. I looked around in there, but they’re not there either.
Oh well, it’s Thanksgiving 2022 and I am grateful for what I have each and every day. Still, I keep thinking about them for some reason.
It’s been nearly a year since I moved last January. So there’s no telling what happened to these things.
But it made me a little sad; a tad nostalgic. One piece of decor was a SNOW sign covered with white flocking. It had red cardinals on it and I just loved it.
Especially because another blogger sent it to me probably more than 10 years ago. That made it even more special.
But it’s nowhere to be found. Neither are two different sized clear jars with holiday scenes inside of them. And there may be more I can’t recall at the moment.
Well, the show must go on, as they say. So I’ll decorate without them.
Yeah, I kind of lost my creative mojo for a bit when I realized I no longer have them.
But I’m sure I can look around here and search in some nooks and crannies and find it again. That mojo is not sealed up in some Rubbermaid storage box where I can’t find it.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all, and have a wonderful time, whatever you have planned for this holiday. I cherish each and every one of you. You are my gifts every single day.
