Too early?

My last post was all about fall, but I have a confession:

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.

Like watching this:

…and this:

“I HATE Uncle Jamie!”

While I’m knitting one of these for Cooper:

I’m TOTALLY kidding.

(I think.)

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.
