TWINKLING

Ever notice, how you pack the lights up every year carefully, yet the next year, with out fail they come out tangled?

I will say, you can tell a lot about a person by the way they handle three things: a rainy day, lost luggage and tangled Christmas tree lights.

Meanwhile....the Snow Queen has arrived, with accompaniment by the Philadelphia Orchestra in the background, with my crappy video.

 
 Thats all.

  2. She can uh... She can uh...
    She can uh...uh...uh...
    That'll never make her rich.
    Me, I uh... and I uh...
    And I uh...uh...uh...
    But I do it with a switch.
    I'm electrifyin',
    And I ain't even tryin';
    I never have to sweat to get paid;
    'Cause if you got a gimmick,
    Gypsy girl, you got it made.

  5. I've got about 8 inches here and I don't twinkle because my twinkler is on the fritz. With a little luck I'll go to bed and wake up with 18 inches, now wouldn't that be a nice present.

  8. Wonderful display, music and scenery!!!...and you - and that bulge - especially!!!
    ...yes lights, cords and ropes all seem to have that uncanny ability to get tangled up...I think it’s a corollary of Murphy’s Law!!!

  13. That is not a crappy video. Sure shows what you're experiencing there. As for your photo, I don't know why but I'm suddenly singing "Really love your peaches, wanna shake your tree."

  14. I love to be cosy inside, with nowhere to go and watch it snow. There's no snow forecast here.

    Your Christmas lights bring lots of cheer! Xx

  15. I must say you make a mighty fine Christmas tree. And I hope you weathered the storm ok.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Stay warm, dear. I was thinking of you and Anne Marie last night when Lester Holt was talking about the storm. You look marvelous, by the way. Santa now knows just HOW good you have been this year. Enjoy being snowbound. It's a wonderful opportunity to rearrange your music collection. :)

  18. It's all so pretty to look at. Oh, yeah - the snow, too, I suppose. I hope you don't get completely snowbound.

  19. I see your well lit?

    I enjoyed the crappy video. I got moved in so wont be decorating. But we got some snow here, but nothing like you got...it was more inland. I also enjoyed seeing your house tour on Sunday!

  20. So you do lights and a festivus pole, both I see?

    1. The festivus pole seems to stay up all year.

  21. Glad to see you kept warm dear Mistress. Your so creative. I too actually like the raw video footage. It looks so warm and cozy......

  22. I think we should have seen the tree, all, in it's full on glory, myself.

  23. Wow, you got some snow. Now, going down the rabbit hole that is my mind, you mentioned Snow Queen. I seem to recall that I loved a cartoon that was either called Snow Queen or about the Snow Queen. In the story she held someone captive and I don't know recall how it ended. I think her heart melted or warmed. Anyway, I must now find this cartoon. I watched for several years, around Christmas time.

    1. Now you got me wondering what it is. The only one that comes to mind is one of my favorite stories...The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.

  26. Mr Blue packs the lights away perfectly - the following year it's as though they are factory fresh. I am the opposite, I tangle everything.
    Those lights suit you!

  27. Those lights are nicely draped.

    Love,

  28. You certainly have a way with Christmas lights, that's for sure. And that is not a crappy video. I can post a video on Twitter of a hot lap I did in a race car in GT Sport and sometimes no one will watch it.

    I've never seen it snow, which is not surprising considering where I live. That was actually fascinating.

  29. Let that Yule log out!!!!!! I just want to scoop you up.

  30. Nothing makes me cross and ruins the christmas spirit than strands of christmas lights. They never fail to vex me.
