My Sprangly Life…


Last year…my Christmas tree was…perfect…it was barely taller than me…so I could easily decorate the top of it…it had a precise conical shape…not a bad side to be found…and…nice tight branches…it was simply…the prettiest tree I had ever had…

This year…my sweetie and I…accompanied Mama…and my nephew’s family…to cut a wild cedar tree…which was a lot of fun and quite the adventure in and of itself…perhaps the topic of another blog

Anyway…we got the tree home…it’s big…and…sprangly…messy…overfills the spot a bit…has delicate branches…that won’t hold much weight…and…lots of them…some of the ornaments won’t work this year…we’ll probably need some new ones…and…the bottom is a bit devoid of lights…

Bertha…says…it reminds her of my life…last year…it was small…it was neat…it was tidy…this year…it’s big…it’s sprangly…it’s messy…and…yes…the branches are a little delicate…and there are a lot of them…some of my old ornaments…won’t work anymore…I may need some new ones…may…want…some new ones…

And…you know…for once…I totally get her analogy…and…I smile…as I remember stringing the lights last night…in my mind…I thought we’d put on some Christmas music…maybe have a cup of cocoa…it would be a Hallmark moment…but…he sweetly asked…do you mind if we turn on the game

Jane…

PS…and…if I didn’t mention…this is the most beautiful tree I’ve ever had…hands down…
