In the Story Castle Today...

Well, let's see.

There are lots of tired people in the Storycastle.  As in very tired.  I can remember being a kid and whenever my folks had "yard work day" I would fall into bed SO TIRED (but everyone around here is even TIREDER than that!)  That's what a weekend of Irish Dance Championships will do to you.

And there are also Christmas boxes down from the attic.

"But StoryQueen," you say. "'Tis not even the Giving of Thanks.  How can one possibly be setting up for the Season of Yule?"

It's like this.  Every moment between now and December 23 is completely packed for the residents of chez Story and if I don't get it set up between now and 6:00 p.m. tomorrow night, it won't happen until the 23rd.

And that is just not acceptable.

I like a full holiday season, my friends.  I think my favorite part of the whole thing is sitting by the tree in the dark of the morning before everyone gets up. Every day in December.  No presents.  No craziness.  Just me and Tree.  I could do it for weeks on end.  Which is precisely why I have to set up NOW.

And I have a lot of work to do if I am going to find a way to suspend the Millennium Falcon from the ceiling so it can protect Tree.

Wishing you a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving, Shelley. I know what you mean about hanging out with the tree when everyone else is asleep. :o)

Okay, now we must have a picture of the M-Falcon defending the tree. What an image!
Have a fabulous Thanksgiving, Shelley.

Happy Thanksgiving! I'd probably already have our tree up, but my dear hubby doesn't like it going up before Thanksgiving. The earliest I can put it up is the day after turkey day, so guess what I'll be doing on Friday? I did get a few Christmas clingies hung up on the window the other day, lol.

We set our tree up after Thanksgiving. And like you, I love sitting near the tree late at night or in the early morning. Such a nice romantic glow!
