In the early morning before it gets light. I plug it in. For at least an hour. And, as soon as it gets dim in the afternoon. I plug it in again. .. til bedtime.
That's the part of Christmas I really like. The sparkly tree. The decorations. Magpie is my middle name?
As you can see I moved over one of the little owls from my little counter top trees... he looks so cute sitting in the branches.. Of course, I should have bought a whole family of them now that I see how sweet they are in a tree.... maybe I can make some ... somehow...
And, look.....no stove in the dining room or under the tree .... we hauled up our table and chairs as soon as the oven was moved into the kitchen on Dec 21st ! Just in the nick of time.
We forgot to take a photo of the little stuffed chicken too.... it was halfway through dinner before either of us realized it. Let me just say ... first roasted chicken since July because of the renovation and there being no oven... .... mmmmmmmmm..it was wonderful if I do say so myself ....and I DO !!
Cheers to us all !
