Madness Update

I have gone completely mad. And that concludes my update.

How are you doing on your holiday plans? I am working toward my goal of getting all, or almost all, of my Christmas shopping, decorating, and wrapping done by December 5.

We decided to shampoo the carpets before putting up the decorations. So, we cleared the rooms of their furniture (as much as possible) and got to work. I cleared furniture and vacuumed, while Mr Farmer got the shampooer out and ready.

Once I had the room prepared, he went to work. I watched him work. I do enjoy that part of my job!

All clean! We put all the furniture back in the room once the floor was dry. Now we can decorate for Christmas.

The tree.

I will do another post on the tree, so be sure to check back.

Christmas cheer in the bathroom.

A snow family in a winter wonderland. I made all these snow people a few years back.

Stockings hung above the window with care.

And a few more snowmen sprinkled around.

This is my favorite snowman. I love his colors and textures.

I still have 3 gifts to wrap and some cookies to bake, but then I'm completely done.

How are your Christmas preparations coming?


  1. Bah! Humbug!

    I got the tree up, the nativity scene and Mr. & Mrs. Santa situated, and the fake poinsettia plant on the table. That's about as far as I ever get. I'm waiting until after the family spills their dinner all over the carpet, then I'm having it professionally cleaned :-)

    1. It's fine as long as you aren't stressed about it, Granny. The point is to get things done early so you can enjoy the season.

    2. I don't stress until 2:00 PM on Christmas day, when the ham has burnt and the turkey still isn't done. LOL!
