TV and Christmas

It has hard put to find anything on the television that isn’t pertaining to the Holiday Season, that is in full swing as I type these holiday words, we just can’t seem to get away from this over abundance of Holiday Spirit.

At the Mall and ALL the other stores have been playing holiday music for the past several weeks and have gone the extra mile to decorate in the most elaborate decorating frenzy ever, it just seems that it is everywhere and it can be a bit over whelming when you are as strapped for cash as I seem to be lately.

One more week and it will all be a memory, hopefully a good one for each and all.

Let The Christmas Music Begin

I like Christmas music. Really I do but not all of the time. I really hate it when my favorite station goes to nothing but Christmas music.  Worst of all, my two favorite stations to listen to in my car went to nothing but holiday music the weekend before Thanksgiving.

Well I may as well get into the mood and post one of the songs that used to make me giggle like a little girl when I was a kid.  Yeah, I admit it!  I did giggle like a little girl when I was a kid but I don’t know anyone that didn’t.  Being a kid at Christmas was enough to bring giggles to us all. Happy giggling!!

It’s That Time Of The Year

Besides watching football on Thanksgiving Day, my of my favorite things to watch is the news about those who wait for a store to open for days before Black Friday. I wonder of these people are really as crazy as they seem. Going through all that trouble just to shop??

I think I’ll do what I always do and that is to stay home and order my things on the internet. Why fight the crowds when I can have what I need delivered to my house. These people are just not thinking to clearly. They are fun to watch though.

My Hands

One of the joys in my life is taking on home improvement projects. I like working with my hands and seeing the results every day when I am done. That’s why when my wife suggested that we might want to fix the backsplash over our kitchen counter, I was all for the idea. The backsplash we have now is waterlogged and rotting away. We thought that using tiles would give us a better look and be more functional.

There are many advantages to using tile. One great thing is that it is waterproof. That means that you can use them even in places where there is a good chance that water will be present. Another advantage is that they are easy to clean. You can also use them on the floor or the wall. We have always been happy with the bathroom tiles in our home, so we thought that using them in the kitchen would work out fine.

The only decision we had left was to figure out where to get the tiles. As usual, we turned to the internet. I found a good site that had a good selection of quality tiles. I even found subway tiles on the site. I am sure that I will enjoy the challenge of putting the tiles up. It will be nice to know that I can use my own hands to improve my home!

Scary Days and Nights

The moon is full in the sky at this time of year. It’s really huge and can be menacing when the clouds are just right. It sets the tone for Halloween and that’s fine with me. I always enjoy trying to give the kids a little scare before they get their treats. It’s a tradition that my father started.

When I was little we always decked out the yard with all manner of scary things. I have taken over this tradition and added to our collection of stuff. My yard will be the envy of all others on the block. I am waiting for tomorrow night!
