Christmas Planning in June

You read it right. We are planning for Christmas in June because of the Christmas in July themes that are just around the corner. It is easier to get into the holiday when the pressure of the holiday is not present for us. There will be holiday movies to watch with her, a few decorations to put up and a feeling of good cheer. 

We are well aware that the holiday itself is in December. There are ornaments to make and gifts to make. We are having an old fashioned Christmas this year complete with theme provided everything goes the way that I hope it will. 

I am thinking of a frontier themed Christmas. There are a couple of things missing like a wood burning stove and fireplace but we'll figure it out. There will be some homemade ornaments. One of the few things that I miss is having the decorations Shorty made in school as the only things on the tree.

There are some supplies we are going to need. Shorty does not want to stay inside to do crafts during the summer, she would rather go outside and play with her toys. We will require outside crafts, such as things involving leaves and twigs for her to create during the summer months. Messy things such as painting can be part of her summer agenda. 

Christmas in July is merely prep work for December. Until next time I hope you enjoy oddly scheduled holidays as well.

Left

The statue was becoming discolored from the rain, green and blue blotches were everywhere. Frustration was taking its toll on the artist as he tried to match the original color with only an ounce left in the can. The feedback on the original concept had been mixed at best and now the rains had left him with a disaster threatening his career.
What is the statue of? Why is the discoloration causing the creator so much concern?

Hot Flash!

“No, it’s too hot.”
“You’re delusional, it’s fine.”
“Not it’s too hot.”
“It’s a tub of ice. It is a reach to say it is hot.”
She walked away and left him sitting there to think about what he was actually trying to say.

Flash in the Pan: Regress

Up, down, right, left.
The motion was making his hands numb but he was determined beat the game once and for all. The idea that he could not make it to the end of the level by the time they called him to dinner was unacceptable.
“Is that all he does all day, at 40?”
“Yes.”
“What caused him to regress?”
“He knows he’s dying.”
What is he dying from would cause him to regress? Is he actually regressing or simply in denial?
