Like many of you the holidays get so busy that your on the go all the time. That would be the case with me. I have a teenage daughter who has a very busy calendar lol. Between Christmas concerts and extra curriculars, just wow. We also went with all but two of the G-Kids to Bass Pro Shop for a visit to see Santa there.
The week of my big concert experience, I got the worst cold! Chest and head cold with the worst cough I have had in 25 years! Ugh. Cough cough cough! I still have the remnants of it. So although I didn’t go down, I was walking around out of it for about a week. Awful virus. Probably better that I didn’t get to meet my idol. Here, have my flu by the way, I love ya? I wouldn’t want to be remembered that way lol. I was however very sad, ok pretty devastated that I didn’t get to meet him. I had to rethink my whole made up illusion about this artist. I thought long and hard about this…I wallowed in the disappointment for a while. His manager was there. I met her, we spoke. I had to give her my name to be admitted to the Soundcheck. If he had been interested to meet me, his camp knew I was there. I’ve been vocal, I’ve been blatant about my desire to meet this man…I’ve blogged, I’ve promoted, I’ve liked every tweet. Commented on every post for two years…If he had a care of meeting this fan, it would’ve happened!
I decided that it was only important if I make it important. I also coined a phrase to my own unique personal perception…”Quit chasing people and dreams that don’t chase you back!” For whatever reason, it wasn’t for me to do. I’m not in his orbit lol. Oh well…
So, rather than dwell on what I don’t get to do I decided to do what it is that I can do…decorate outside lol!
I had help, my elderly cat Twink sat outside while I enjoyed decorating the patio…
Even the doghouse got a wreath!
In between, I even revisited and uploaded a song on SoundCloud. Just to prove to myself that I can power through even with a cold. For what it’s worth lol, here is the link. Oh Darlin, written by Rick Davies.
Then, it was on to the front yard decor… I serve as helper to my husband on all the outdoor decor. People seem to enjoy our effort. We feel rather obligated to decorate as we live in a corner house. Our street is prevalent to the traffic flow in the neighborhood. We are sadly one of the few who decorate. Most of our neighbors are older and don’t decorate.
I’ve wrapped almost all of the gifts and now I’m moving on to baking! Zoe and I are going to have a baking day tomorrow. I like to make homemade goodies for my neighbors and friends. This year I am making a few new ideas in semi homemade treats… I will show you as they are simple, don’t take all your time and anyone can make them! A little homemade goodness without major time consumption!
Have fun in your holiday festivities whatever they may be!
