|From PS "October". Finished the stitching during my stay in Erie.|
They have always been early. Both of them were school teachers and so they had lots of miscellaneous school days off in the fall, meaning they had more time to get that sort of household thing done. Much more time than those of us in retail. And now they're both retired, so I foresee the decorations coming out earlier and earlier.
Jack and Elaine at breakfast on July 5
Jack: Well, that was a rousing fireworks display last night! I guess it's time to put away the firecrackers and Roman Candles.
Elaine: And while you're up in the garage attic, you had better bring down Santa and the Baby Jesus! You can never get them on the lawn too soon.
Now listen....this angst I'm expressing absolutely does NOT apply to needlecraft bloggers! We know that our art is more involved than testing light bulbs and laying extension cords, so post away at any time with your pics of holiday and winter stitching, sewing, quilting, knitting or whatever needlecraft floats your boat.
Just keep the lawn decorations in the house for a little while longer!
