Today marks my last blog post of the year as I share my Christmas tree for two blog events.
My small living room does not support much of a tree these days. Once my hubby and I started spending week-long Christmas vacations in San Diego, putting up a tree seemed slightly pointless. To have it sit all alone on Christmas would be heartbreaking! I have plenty of other decorations around the house to celebrate the season.
I have a collection of wooden pine trees that I keep on my fireplace mantel. So instead of putting up a tree, I just decorate my large wooden tree with lights. It is almost 4 feet tall and sits on the fireplace all year long. This tree now “lives” in Sacramento, and was purchased in Lake Tahoe.
This is submitted for Silver Threadings’ challenge, Trees Around the World.
In another example, I have some wooden Christmas trees that I place on the mantel. I am submitting this for Hugh’s News and Views Christmas Tree Topper Photo challenge.
The stars on the wooden tree will have to serve as the toppers in this case.
As many bloggers traditionally take a short holiday break this time of year, so shall I. Mine will be extended a bit as we travel South to San Diego for a family Christmas, then off to Mexico (Baja Sur near La Paz) for two weeks of windsurfing, fun and sun!
I plan to spend tons of leisure time on the beach and on the water. Since my blog is all about leisure, I probably should experience some for myself!
Where we stay in La Ventana, wi-fi is available, although a little spotty. So not only will I not be posting regularly, I may not be reading and commenting on other posts!
I may still participate in the weekly photo challenges if the mood strikes. Watch for some Baja pics on Facebook and Instagram. Once I get back I will share some leisurely fun and sun with you.
