What a silly title, holidays are no different in a double/single wide than in any other home. I didn’t get into the decorating mood until the christmas stuff went on sale! I just knew that lots of stuff for christmas was going to be 50% off right after christmas and I was right. I bought a $40.00 6.5 lighted christmas tree for $20.00 and all the decorations for it for less than $15.00! This will be next christmas’ decorations as the tree, of course, is artificial-i won’t have a real tree in the house it is to much of a fire hazard. Here are some photos of the tree and fireplace.
I’ll store all this holiday decoration stuff in the closet and it will be used next year with a few additions every year until I get bored with the whole idea. I got to spend christmas morning with the family for a family style breakfast and it was fun watching the kids grin from ear to ear and catch up on all the things the family was doing for the holidays. The menu was scrambled eggs, bacon, gravy and biscuits, cantaloupe melon lots of coffee and juice. I stayed until almost lunch and returned home to my MH and had a late lunch with my sister that was delicious, she did the cooking bless her heart. The menu was roasted turkey breast, sweet potatoes, green peas, stuffing and gravy.
I have managed to buy a few things for the house; one end table, floor lamp, table lamp and a bedside table for my room. My favorite store is Goodwill and if you see it and want it get your hand on it right away stuff like furniture and lamps fly off the shelves. I have some work to do on the house so a trip to the big box store was in order where I got material and tools to make some minor repairs. It looks like this summer I’ll have to seriously consider painting the house. The joys of home ownership 😦
I have enjoyed the fireplace and it has been cold enough for a fire every evening. Sitting with my sister having an adult beverage talking about old times and new times has been fun. 😀
