“Trimming” the Tree

My patient husband performed a bit of surgery on our Christmas tree today, cutting off the bottom row of too-wide branches that were sweeping far into our living space, and shortening the trunk. (Poor guy, he did this with an inadequate saw.) Now the tree is still huge, but fits much better in the living room. The room is rearranged now as well, and will serve us perfectly for the holiday season. There is plenty of space for presents under the tree and ample seating for guests. A slight angling of the loveseat on Christmas morning will make an ideal arrangement for present unwrapping.

My final task of the night, before sitting down to relax, was to put on the tree skirt. She is all ready to be decked out with lights and ornaments tomorrow. I am really looking forward to it.

  1. I bet your tree is looking lovely now. We had some tree ups and downs as well, as is the case every year. Stupid trees.
