Since y'all wanted to see the disco tree, here she is... at night, and during the day. Granted they are cell phone pics and not the greatest (especially since I don't know how to adjust the resolution on there), I think you can tell from the first one what the fibre optics look like. Yes, they really are rainbow colors: everything from green to orange to purple.
Hubby says the tree looks more like a Mardi Gras tree to him. Hm... never thought of that. But we do have mardi gras beads on it, and curls of gold ribbon. In truth, I haven't seen so much rainbow color and gold together since I played with Barbie Dolls. Didn't Barbie have a gold lame outfit with streaky things all over it back in the day? Anyway, I digress... The tree has the typical little trinkets like suncatchers, candy canes, stuffed toys on it and such. You be the judge. Disco or Mardi Gras, there it is.
I picked up a copy of Pirates 3 for Hubby, and bought a new table cloth for the season - holly berries this year. As much as I'd love to keep the table uncovered, with three males, I'm finally starting to learn it's best to throw a sheet over just about everything. :P
Ooh! I got a few books in yesterday. A couple were Xmas presents which I promptly wrapped and put away for Santa, and the last one I bought just for me. ^_^ I started reading it last night and had to MAKE myself put it down so I could get to bed at a decent time. The book is called Weirdly, and it's an anthology put together by Wild Child Publishing. It's a collection of strange tales and horror stories by a string of really good authors: Bernita Harris, Rae Lindly, James Cheetham, CT Adams and Cathy Clamp, Faith Bicknell-Brown, ME Ellis...and that's just for a start. Some stories are quite short, others span a few pages, but each one is like a different slice of reality. Not two are the same. It's like an adult version of Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark. A very interesting, very cool book!
Whew! Tomorrow's Friday - got to admit I am soooo ready! I am not going to lift a FINGER tomorrow! (Okay, yeah, I know. We'll see...) I still have a few things to do today, like getting the last of the storage boxes out of the closets and hauling them out to storage shed. Didn't I say I wasn't going to be the one to haul the junk out the storage shed?? Didn't I? Just a few posts back. Yeah, well...you know how that goes. *sigh* A mimi's work is never done. At any rate, I better get on it. Oldest is going to be home in another hour and a half.
Hope your Thursday is a snazzy one!
