My Christmas countdown is already underway. It exists at several levels.
Already in progress: Silent, giddy glee upon seeing the shelves beginning to fill up with wrapping paper, ornaments, stockings, ribbons, and snowy things. I made a special trip to the garden section of Wal-Mart tonight–you know, just to see. Some may think we’re rushing things, as the song says, but I say, “Deck the halls again now!”
It’s my favorite time of year.
Next: Countdown to this album release.
Then I suppose I will celebrate Halloween (it is HB’s birthday)
….aaaaannnnd then jump immediately into more preparations.
I’m TOTALLY kidding.
Do you already have your bells on?
Dreamed of your perfect tree?
Just waiting for a frosty morning to bust out the Christmas jams?
Le sigh. It’s 80 degrees outside.
And it’s October.
I have no excuses for my behavior.
