So This is Christmas

Driving home from an Oral and Maxillofacial appointment in Halifax today with Mom and listening to Christmas music (I wasn’t much in the mood at first but she felt like listening) I decided that this year I was going to try and do things a little differently for Christmas. I say this now I know, but I really am going to try. I promise I am going to try my best. What do I mean by that?

I am determined this year to get a bit more in the Christmas spirit. I am going to take a bit of money this week that we have extra and get a few things to decorate with. I am not one to go overboard anyways. However, I really want to put up some nice decorations and maybe even a real tree or at the very least a proper artificial one. We even have one from a few years ago out in the garage.

One of the songs Mom and I heard was this one by John and Yoko:

I have always been a big fan of John Lennon and of The Beatles actually and this song has long been one of my favorite Christmas songs. I know some people found the song to be weird and John & Yoko obviously but I loved it and it’s one of the most memorable Christmas songs from my childhood. All of the Christmas songs we listened to really put me in the mood.

When I got home since I am still not feeling well and since my husband was at work I had started to read some blogs and then I got to thinking I wanted to make a Christmas theme for my blog. Something I don’t think I’ve done in a long time. I got a little lazy I must admit and took the easy way out. Something I am all too good at doing

I found the above image of the reindeer and fell in love with it and really wanted to use it so I figured a way to just incorporate it pretty easily into my current theme which I just edited right in WordPress because I was too lazy to create a new theme and besides, I want to try a different WordPress starter theme to build a theme from next time. So I apologize in advance for the early Christmas stuff, I know, it’s not even the end of November yet..

It’s been a long couple days since we had to stay up in the city in a hotel so I was near the hospital but we are home now and it’s time for bed. I got to spend some quality time with my mom in the car and that’s all that matters!

  1. The theme is really cute! I LOVE Christmas time! I’m usually home, in my pajamas playing games and drinking hot cocoa! I really love The Beatles, but our local station plays Christmas songs all day, but never this one.

    1. Thanks! I fell right in love with the reindeer. I love Christmas time too! I know what you mean. I spend a lot of time at home too, in my pajama’s either playing video games, watching TV with my husband or on my computer. I love hot chocolate too. We have SiriusXM this year in our new car so I plan to spend a lot of time listening to Christmas music.

  2. The little reindeer is so sweet! We all need some big, cute eyes in our life and he sets the tone so well for Christmas.

    Have fun decorating! Even a few little lights make me smile, and putting together our tree when the year warrants it from cut-off branches from the tree farms is one of my favorite festive activities.

    1. Thank you! I love decorating for Christmas, it is one of my favorite things. I was a bit concerned about a tree as our living room is tiny and we didn’t have one last year but I think I am going to see if I can get a small one.
