SUMMARY: Getting the lights up
So, I'm a little late this year--but last year I never got a tree. Orrrr I got it but never decorated it.
Yesterday I found a decent-enough tree, a smallish silver-tip fir. I love these because they have soooo much space between the branches for ornaments, and I have soooo many ornaments -- more than I can fit on an 8-foot tree, so with this tiny one, hooboy, it'll be really hard to pick and choose.
But first--the lights!
In the order of things, the string of lights with light-up ornaments attached goes first, to try to distribute the light-ups fairly evenly.
Some of my light-ups:
(Says, "You are strong, young Skywalker,
but you are not a Jedi yet. [inhale]")
Hmm, do we detect a space-ish theme here?
I also have this high-tech computer user ornament--a ginormous(*) CRT with glowing green letters on a black background making a letter to Santa. Does this date me? And my ornament?
|And a couple more.|
Next, one string of twinkling lights. I thought that, with a smaller tree, I could get away with just those two strings, but noooooooooo -- too many empty branches. Ah, well, not bad for one busy weekend. To bed!
