Another day…more blood, sweat and tears.
We got up at 6 and worked 7-12, then we showered and went shopping for a few decoration items, then returned home, had lunch, and worked from 2-530.
So, 15.5 hours total decorating so far. The only thing we have left is the giraffe tree, but we were too pooped and sore to push ourselves even a little bit more to finish up tonight. Instead we stopped to relax, listen to music, have cocktails, and enjoy the fruits of our labor.
Tonight’s dinner – Lasagna stuffed peppers.
Tonight’s cocktail – French Pear Martinis:
1 Part St Germaine
2 Parts Pear Vodka
1 Part Prosecco
I can no longer feel my legs, my feet are throbbing, and my back is killing me.
But I am so thrilled with how the place looks.

more exquisite cocktails! Can I come live with you two?
Would you mind sending a couple of those cocktails down to Savannah?
Can I deliver them myself?

And really, with those cocktails, it doesn’t matter too much how the decorations look.
I’m here for the cocktails!!! But Goddess bless you for looking at Christmas decorations that long. I like the holiday but can’t think of Christmas till at least the first week of December, and don’t decorate till the end of the second week.
It’s a little early for me, but I’m not looking a gift horse in the mouth. The BFJ offered to come help decorate while hubby was away. I’d be crazy to turn down the help!
I hope you’ll be posting photos soon!
Honestly. Jeffrey leaves you alone for one weekend and see the mischief you get up to?
That is a lot of decorating! I am impressed. However, even at my best, I could not have managed that many hours of decorating. I cannot wait to see the results.
Did you lose the feeling in your legs before or after the martinis?
I’m here for the cocktails, too. My football team caused me to open an emergency supply of canned Jack & coke yesterday that was surprisingly good.
I admire your decoration tenacity! I don’t think I would have the stamina to do it!
