An "Ooooh, Shiny!" for Christmas

Gentle readers, I have done zilch on the house the past month or so, unless you count strewing a modicum of Christmas decorations amidst the demounted trim boards, plaster residue, and pet hair furballs as "doing something" on the house. Oh, yes, I did get my outside decorations up, thus contributing my bit towards the festive aspect of the neighborhood.

Nope. I've substitute-taught every blessed day this month in a rather difficult school and I come home exhausted. It's a good thing I have my outside Christmas lights on a timer; otherwise half the time they wouldn't get turned on. Or off.

But to contribute to the festivity of the houseblogs community (and to make sure I have at least one post in December), I present a little vid I did of my Christmas tree three years ago.

It will have to stand in for a full-height tree again this year: Until I get the demounted living room and dining room baseboards refinished and back up, it's only the old "bottle brush" tree on top of the piano for me.
