it's Monday night, this is what I'm thinking

K is watching Almost Human. His interest in science fiction knows no bounds...sort of. Actually, it would seem that television knows no bounds when it comes to providing science fiction shows.
But enough of that.
I used Paperless Post for my company's holiday party invitation. It's not the easiest site to navigate but it works if you stick with it.
So, I suppose, because I've just finished sending out our holiday party invitations, that it feels like Christmas is right around the corner.
It's Christmas at the train station. They put the decorations up today.


But it's still yellow in my driveway.


I've started the decorations for our dining room.


And K has started the wine.


At work there was a small fire on the floor below us.


We had to walk down and then wait on the street until all the firemen came back down and told us it was time to go back upstairs. They were all handsome, the firemen.
Why do you suppose that is?


Youngest bought himself this ring and wears it "to remember the folly of hubris."
Got that?
I am still considering it.

I made a trip to Ikea and outfitted my company with most of the things required to equip a kitchen. Or two.


And then my friend MB and I created an analog pinterest board in the lobby.


It turned out pretty well, I must say.



Beautifully yellow.

I don't get this Christmas rush. Even here they've put decorations up.
We're still in short sleeves. Thank fully today is sprinling but I don't get it. Sorry.

I don't get the christmas rush either… Seriously it starts earlier every year. A few blocks away from my house they decorated a week BEFORE halloween… Crazy. As for the fireman, I think being handsome is a requirement. In my crazy office building there tends to be weekly false alarms when there is construction going on (which is pretty consistent) and all the fireman are handsome too!

The Christmas Rush is giving me a little bit of anxiety, but only when I venture out into public.
I am knitting a few gifts and I still have the Fall decor going on in the kitchen.

DECK looks like the beginning of a garland? Please post a pic when it's done.

We're in Thanksgiving mode for the rest of the month here, even though the leaves disappeared a week ago.
Nice job on the clipboards.

Analog Pinterest boards -- genius! (no surprise there)
I love Youngest's hands. If my hands looked that good I would have to worry about hubris, too.

Love the analog Pinterest boards! Bringing it full circle.

And yeah, I find much of the Christmas thing alienating (not a great attitude for a retailer, I'll tell you). I try to get into a "festive" mood for the season, though. I love the idea of the Christmas Revels to celebrate that the light will return soon (pretty sure it's pagan in origin, though).

The folly of hubris? I love Youngest. I love all of you! Sending you non-commercial, non-denominational pre-holiday good cheer!

(we live by a fire station, and unfortunately, the firefighters are all meh in the good looks department. but fine men nonetheless!)

Christmas season is NOT allowed to start until the day after Thanksgiving. No question about it. Pisses me off actually.

You do such fun things at work! I can't imagine a job more suited for your interests and talents.

I have this overwhelming urge to put our Christmas tree up. Can you imagine? From me, the ultimate bah humbug of types. I put it out there to the boys and Jasper is now badgering me to do so. So I guess, on Nov 24, we're putting our tree up. A record.

PS - I'm also blogging again. An early Christmas miracle?
