“Gather ye rosebuds while ye may,
Old Time is still a-flying;
And this same flower that smiles today
Tomorrow will be dying.”
~ Robert Herrick, To the Virgins, to Make Much of Time
It’s Saturday, which really means very little to me other than it’s a day I chose not to go shopping because it’s crowded.
I may choose otherwise today because I found the perfect Christmas tree, one like I’ve been hankering for since last year when I got the spark of an idea and I don’t want to risk waiting too long lest they be all gone.
I’m not a Christmas tree person; I’ve had a prelit tabletop tree for ten plus years. But this tree. Oh my, this tree. It’s non traditional and simple (kind of like me)!
And yes, I’m aware that I’m breaking another one of my personal rules by talking about Christmas in September.
But there’s this tree . . .
