O Christmas Tree

It’s December now, which means (a) WTF? How the hell did it get to be December already??, and (b) it’s totally legitimate that I put up my Christmas tree last night. Totally. Legit.

I took pictures even though it looks *exactly* like it did last year. Except that I now have a TV beside it1. That’s what we call “progress.”

May you be touched by his Noodly Appendage.

Happily, the chili peppers that I put on my tree last year seemed to hold  up pretty well through a year of being in storage. While hanging on the tree, they dried out nicely, which seems to have preserved them well. Two looked a bit icky, so I tossed them, but the rest were in fine shape.

Also, I already have some presents, which I picked up from my family when I was in Montreal, under my tree:

A little bird told me that some presents are winging their way towards me, so there will be more to put under the tree soon!

I still feel like I don’t have enough ornaments. Maybe I’ll get creative and make a few more this month!
