I woke up, once, at 6:00 a.m., this morning, and considered getting up for the day. But, I had gone to sleep after 4:00 a.m. and knew that two hours of sleep wouldn't be enough. So, after going to the bathroom, I went back to bed and slept till practically noon! Oops! But, I got eight hours of sleep!
After a brunch of scrambled egg, bacon, and toast, I started on decorating the tree. I don't have a theme or a color scheme when it comes to decorating my Christmas tree. My ornaments are a varied collection of colored glass balls I bought one year (1980) during an after Christmas sale (the first Christmas ornaments I bought), dollar store finds that reflected daughter's interests, and gifts from family and friends.

|Ballerina (year daughter began dance lessons)|
|Ceramic Angel from my mother|
|Snowflake from a friend|
|Light Bulb Cover|
It took me almost four hours to decorate the tree! It reminded me of why I don't put up the tree every year! LOL. I did take a break to have a cup of tea and start sewing the seams on my new sweater. I watched news and a couple of holiday specials on TV while I decorated.
Today, I am grateful for:
- Being able to sleep in!
- My collection of ornaments
- Holiday traditions
- Chatting with my daughter
Today's joyful activity was decorating the Christmas tree.
Assuming you put up a tree, do you have a color scheme or a theme for your tree? Or, do you, too, have a collection of ornaments gathered over the years?
