It’s (not) beginning to look like…

…. Christmas at our house. But really, it’s not about the decorations, I know. But there is something about the glow of the Christmas lights and candles. I hope to decorate soon. Our house was re-tiled this week

We welcome guests regardless of the appearance! Come on in!

Soon, the mantle will have greenery with the letters, NOEL, along with twinkling lights. A fire in the fireplace, and children sipping hot cocoa on the rug in front of the fire! I can’t wait!


The entire house is covered with white construction dust.

The yard has a huge pile of tile and the front porch is covered in Construction trash, rather than a warm warm wreath with small trees and lights welcoming guests.
The garage is covered in trash instead of Christmas decoration boxes. The workers should return Monday to clean everything up. I am looking forward to slowing down and filling the house with sounds, smells, and sights of Christmas .. now only two weeks away!!

  1. The new tile looks great! That white construction dust looks VERY familiar. I am still finding it on surfaces that I swore I had cleaned before. Maybe your landlord will hire a cleaning service to come in and clean it for you?

    • Denise, I am sure your house looks alot like ours. Yes, the owners have been very helpful with cleaning. The ladies started yesterday and will return today to finish wiping it all down.

    • Thanks Cheryl, I think I would have packed up and left for the entire month to avoid all the clean up if the ladies didn’t come to remove all of the construction dust. I don’t feel very close to Advent being displaced for the week, but I know it won’t be long before the boxes from the attic come down now!
