Day 5.321: In the holiday spirit?
Our outdoor Christmas lights are up. Of course, because I didn't get around to taking them down after last winter (I think I was waiting for winter to come so that I could wait for it to go again), that just means that I've turned them on.
Not that I should play that down too much - it did involve finding the timer switch I bought for the purpose of lighting these last year. I bought it last year because I couldn't find our previous timer switch. To continue a long story, I didn't find it. I did, however, find the older timer switch which I couldn't find last year, so that's doing the job just fine.
Now the question is, when will we get a tree? The last two years we've gone on the first weekend in December (usually a week after Thanksgiving) to get one. This year, after the earliest possible Thanksgiving date, that would be this coming weekend December 1st/2nd - Christmas really is coming early this year!
