long ago and far away...
I am no where near putting up the tree,
but be of good cheer - don't worry about me,
I've spent the day cleaning with the songs of the season,
And after hours of 'Jingle Bells' my mind can not reason.
I leave you now to sleep, dream, and snore,
Tomorrow I hope to finish housework and chores.
Then I will decorate, gifts I will wrap,
and I promise
NO MORE DR. SEUSS!
this post sounds like crap.
This feeble attempt at poetry was caused by
Suzanne, COLORADOLADY, who mentioned
HOW THE GRINCH STOLE CHRISTMAS
and I watched and can tell you honestly,
Dr. Seuss and blogging is a dangerous combination.
For Vintage Thingy Thursday I'm going with
vintage Christmas Music.
I could listen to Christmas music all year long. I sang Christmas carols and songs to my babies when I got tired of lullabies - I could only remember the first verse of most lullabies and my babies never were asleep after one verse... or one song.
These days I try to wait and only listen during Advent (maybe a week or so before) until about the first week of January. With the events of the last few weeks I'm off to a slow start and just started listening on Tuesday.
Once the music starts I get in the mood to clean the house and decorate for Christmas. I figure anything that can make me want to clean house is truly amazing and (maybe) even a miracle...
