JB decided to change up the area under our Charlie Brown Christmas tree. I spray painted the castle red. We won't be using it as a toy anytime soon. It came in handy last year.
This year, we are all set up. Presents are wrapped. We're good to go.
Notice the temperature Saturday morning, -11 C.
JB added more lights to his display, but it was a bit bouncy. Nutmeg jumped up, took a whack at the train, and it fell off the track. I used tweezers to take some fluff out of the train wheels.
Back in July, 2011, I used a couple of pieces of wood to make a baby gate. It worked really well, but we don't need it anymore. I noticed Daisy climbing on it in the photo. (She's doing well, I've heard, rehomed in an apartment of JB's cousin's friend.)
The train hasn't been working very well. I took the baby gate apart, and recycled the wood. I had another brainstorm, for Plan C for the train. Splitting the two pieces in half, I cut them up to fit the top of the card table. What a difference it made. The cardboard was to bouncy and the train kept losing contact.
...enjoy the magic of Christmas.
It does look like you are on the way to being ready for Christmas. I like your train display. Mr Man gave up the idea of a train (Hogwarts Express) running around the tree - our two fur girls are not just curious but naughty.
I'm not ready for -11 days ... again.
Such adorable pictures and it looks like you are ready for the holiday.
The Polar shift has hit here - -13C overnight and now, at one in the afternoon everywhere is still frosty and the reading is -2C. I don't recall ever having it that low in my nearly nine years back here. Am rather enjoying the change! Your place looks suitably festive... hope JB is not suffering long-term from that fall. YAM xx
Your Dad taught you well.
Sue’s dad was a handyman type, and she experiences the same nostalgic feelings when she smells freshly cut sawdust.
Looks festive at your place!
Those temperatures are definitely brisk. We experience minus 5 regularly, but rarely go as low as minus 11.
You are a real handy person with all your tools.
Clever lady with the fix for the table.
Cinnamon doesn't quite get why it's moving, so he finds that troubling.
You win for creative re-use :)
I love that you are already ready for Christmas and that you are so handy with redoing and repurposing things.
Great fix on the train. I like the red castle, very smart.
