This morning my husband and I went shopping.
One of our smoke alarms started chirping and
we try and change batteries when the time changes.
Our kids live in the upstairs part of the house. There
is 3 bedrooms and a bathroom and a loft.
When he got the ladder upstairs much to our dismay,
only one smoke alarm was in working order. At some time
who knows when they must have chirped and not a one was
to be found, just wires hanging from the ceiling. The ceilings
are ten feet so I hadn't noticed that they were all missing. We
can only surmise that they ended up in the trash can.
So we went shopping for new smoke alarms. While we
were at Wal Mart and we were walking around, I sort of
inched the basket over to the magazine rack. I realized,
I have a addiction to Christmas Magazines. If it has something
to do with ornaments, Christmas trees or food, I want it.
My husband is with me so I just look and though he never says
anything, well not much, when we go to the grocery store, he
does notice that the basket always goes down that aisle.
Gooseberry Patch has it's new Christmas magazine/book out.
Lovely recipes and great things to make. The other two are
from my next favorites Create and Decorate. I feel almost like
if I even made a fraction of the stuff I see in these magazines
there would be no place to walk or sit.
I did make myself stay away from Country Living today. I am
starting to have these little twitches to start hanging out at my favorite
antique stores. There is this one and maybe this year I will remember to
take my camera, but they have old Nativity's made from all over the world.
I would love one but they are so expensive, so I just stand and look at them
and the workmanship will take your breath away.
I refuse to decorate until the day after Thanksgiving because I like my focus
to all be on being Thankful.
I hope you have a lovely Monday.
