December 1st! ‘Time to retire the pumpkins and deck the halls! I know, some people are already fully Christmased, but our weather has been lousy. I may retire my scarecrow permanently, or just revive his nose with some orange craft paint. I do love recycling and that reminds me. I’ve thought of a way to recycle those old wooden country elements from the 80’s. Get em out of their boxes and glue ’em on to a tree. I also couldn’t quite wait for after Thanksgiving to put a tree by the door, so I stuck some artificial autumn leaves in amongst the branches. Now, all I have to do is go remove them, and I’ve got a country Christmas tree by the front door.
