So I’m looking at yet another catalog (at least I’ve found out where to recycle them) and instead of clothes, I see camp lights for Christmas trees.
This is our weekend to camp. We always camp on Thanksgiving weekend.
Except, well, this year we have the same complications that kept us from the Cowboys/Redskins Monday Night Opener and the Livestrong Challenge and, oh, other things that I just stopped planning, and this weekend, it’s our annual camping trip when I was doing to take a fabulous bike ride.
And we’re not there.
So those Christmas tree lights really yanked my chain. I thought, “Why don’t I get a little Christmas tree and only put camping stuff on it, wouldn’t that be cool?”
Not the fish, though. I mean, I think they’re really pretty but I don’t fish, and the idea of dead fish (no matter how pretty) hanging on the tree just doesn’t do anything for me. But the little red lanterns? Tres cool.
Which started me on a search for other camping stuff to hang on a tree which then got me sidetracked by all sorts of other fun/odd/downright bizarre Christmas tree lights.
As for my camping tree, I found some tree frogs.
Aren’t they cute?
So I’m not camping this weekend. I haven’t been on my bike in a month. I’m not getting much writing done, and I have commitments that keep going unfulfilled. But, I’m stealing away a few minutes from the other stuff that is always hanging over us to blog. Because so far, circumstances haven’t managed to stop me from watching the Cowboys play or eating Thanksgiving dinner or … blogging. I guess that’s a lot, all things considered.
I hope you had a wonderful day!
I did, even if occasionally I have bitch-slap myself into remembering that.
