But a couple people have mentioned that they are fitting for our house. Even if you didn't know the carol. Which most people here don't.
It's been a pleasure to decorate a new-to-us home this year. I'm sure you'll recognize some things. I went with a "simple is better" this year. It's having a calming effect on me.
Long live Modge Podge. Theo made the board. I cut out the Merry.
First, come into the kitchen.
It was Nial and his friend who secured the tree this year. It is VERY difficult to find an evergreen in southern Kyrgyzstan. I mean, you can find ones that people have planted, watered and babied, but they don't want to sell them. The guys found this in the middle of nowhere. They were going to just take it, but their saw broke. Nial's friend said that was probably God. I'm thinking so. As they were going to leave, they met people who knew the owner. They called him up and made a deal. Yay! He said he had others for next year too.
We lopped a meter off both ends, did a little shaping, and voila!
I've never ever had a mantle to decorate.
I hope you're able to breathe as well.
