Time Flies

The three wise men?  Maybe.

The Christmas tree in the store. I made it out of a triangular tomato cage. I suppose I could have gone out and cut a tree on my property, but the tomato cage will not shed.

As you can see, my registration desk needs to be trimmed out. But that is not what I was looking at when I took the picture. This terrarium was one of the arrangements at my Dad's funeral. The plants have all died, so I made a fairie garden. Even the fairies have their own tree.

Another shot of my Christmas balls.

Kamper Stacy found these old campers and cars in a thrift store and bought them for me. They fit over the lights. 

It has occurred to me that all the decorations will have to be taken down and carefully packed up soon. Time seems to go by so fast. Remember being a child and thinking time was crawling by? Especially around Christmas time, or waiting for the school year to end!

I have recovered from my rant yesterday. I managed to make 5 batches of cookies and now have only 4 left to do. Tomorrow. It will be here before you know it!

I too wonder why time goes so much faster now. Even when I was working, time would just crawl some days. And days of the week would go on for more than five days!

But now, in retirement, Sunday through Saturday passes in a blink of the eye. It's Saturday, again, and yet it was just a day ago or so that it was Saturday. I'm making plans for the next week, as I do each weekend, and hopefully I can accomplish all the tasks I plan before I run out of time each day.

Enjoy your festive week of Christmas.

The older we get the faster time flys by, I really like the look of your large balls so pretty

It all looks so nice. Your creative brain knew exactly what to do.

I love the fairy terrarium! I'd never guess that your tree was made from the tomato thingy.

I love the Christmas Frogs and the Faerie Garden. I love that the Faeries have their own Christmas tree.

Oh-oh-oh, I love your creativity! Those balls turned out great.
