And just like that, we're back to Friday. These weeks both seem to simultaneously drag on and pass in a flash. Pandemic life is creating a perpetual look with everyday feeling identical. Weekends, which are still non eventful, are anticipated simply because they provide variety.
Last month we went to the tree farm and tagged our tree. Because we took advantage of tagging, the farm is allowing tree pick up the weekend before Thanksgiving. This early pick-up is being encouraged to help the farm comply with social distancing during what is traditionally a very busy time of year.
On Sunday, we are going to pick up our Christmas tree. Yes, I realize that it is early and that we have not yet celebrated Thanksgiving. Spending so much time at home and having had to give up every other seasonal activity, I'm determined to enjoy the holiday as much as we can. For us, that means having a bright and tall tree.
Because we tagged such a large tree coupled with the ongoing pandemic, we opted to pay extra to have our tree cut, drilled, shaken and bound before we arrived. (In all honesty, nobody really enjoyed getting on the ground with wet pine needs to struggle to cut down a frozen tree.) Now all we have to do is drive up and the tree will be tied to our car. If things go as planned, this should be easy and stress free.
Have a great weekend, and I'll post tree pics on Monday!
