We did a lot today, but it didn't feel rushed and it was perfect weather and an awesome day.
-woke up late, around 10am.
-walked through the neighborhood cemetery, the oldest in the city, for the first time.
-walked to the West Fulton business district and visited a bunch of antique shops
-went to cut down our gigantic Christmas tree, our now traditional blue spruce, for $18.
-somehow managed to get the thing home (it was almost as big as our car! hahaha)
-somehow managed to stuff it through the front door and get it vertical with friendly neighbor Tim's help.
-went to see Nick and Nora's Infinite Playlist at the 2nd run theater.
-cleaned the kitchen!
When I say this tree is huge...it's frickin' huge! The base of the trunk is about 5 1/2" in diameter. I had to cut off a foot so that it would fit inside our 9 1/2' ceilings. And it must be at least 8 feet wide at the bottom. When we were cutting it down, it didn't seem that much bigger than last year's tree. But, then when I had to get help to lift it onto the car and it was spilling over the sides...that's when we realized that maybe it was a bit TOO big.
Tomorrow we get to decorate it, but we're worried we won't have enough lights! It will still be wonderful though! We'll figure it out.
