This has to be some kind of record for me. As of yesterday, I have a 4 foot Christmas tree set up in my office. It is white, with pastel lights, and it looks so pretty in the dark. (I have always loved the way Christmas trees look in the dark.)
Why so early? Well, I’ll be in Las Vegas for three days during the rodeo–Harrah’s and my wonderful publishers have teamed up to put on the most amazing promotion for my books and for me. I will be giving you lots more details as I get them and also tweeting pictures like mad, once this begins.
That’s reason one for putting up the tree early.
Reason two is, I’ll be leaving for Santa Monica to spend the holiday with my daughter and future son-in-law on December 21. On the 23rd, we’re going to Disneyland to see all the lights and decorations–watch for tweets on that, too.
In the meantime, I want to look at shining Christmas trees, without putting up the big fifteen footer that usually goes in the living room. Ergo, I purchased two prelit white trees (one is for my bedroom) and ornaments in silver and aqua.
I’m into enjoying Christmas this year.
We might even have to downgrade my personality type from A-minus to B-plus.
