menu plan monday ~ october 12, 2015

Today is Columbus Day and school is out. Youngest Daughter traveled to visit a friend at college this weekend. My sister came down to put up Christmas trees on Saturday. I was troubled by a stomach bug on Sunday, so I didn’t get much done. I’m still a bit on the queasy side today, but am feeling better.

We put up the blue and silver tree in the downstairs bedroom on Saturday. So far, the kittens are intrigued but fairly well behaved. We had a crackling fire and Christmas carols, thanks to while we decorated the blue and silver tree.

Opening the boxes of ornaments is like opening Christmas presents.


It needs to be tinseled at the bottom, but we are going to wait till nearer the open house to do that. No point in tempting the kitties more than we have to.


We also put up the garden tree in the downstairs bath.
