Yesterday, hubby and I finally bought a tree. It's not a real one, because the new company that took over our apartment building sent around notices letting everyone know they can't have a real one. Bah humbug!
The old company never minded at all. There was more of a feeling of community here back then. The superintendent knew most of the residents by name. But since they took over, the superintendent has changed about three times.
Anyway, hubby and I bought a tiny artificial tree. I didn't want to spend a fortune on one because, I know if we move next year, I'll want a "real" tree. Still, to quote Charlie Brown, "It's not a bad little tree."
It is sitting on a box in the living room because it's only about 4' tall. There was no way all the decorations were going on it, so we had to pick and choose our favorites, which was kinda nice. Hubby put on the lights and I sat and made popcorn and cranberry strings to wrap around it. Just like in Charlie Brown's Christmas, it morphed from a skinny little thing into a full, pretty tree. *g*
It didn't take long to put the tree up, but it does add a homey glow to the room.
It's the spirit that counts and this little tree has plenty of that!
Hope all of you are decorated for the holidays. Have fun!
