And same to you.
Ah, but you have those wonderful memories.
On a bike? Ouch.
Ok! Here is my fool proof, but slightly labor intensive method for storing tree lights.
Leave lights on tree. Start at one end of a strand and gather around 6 light bulbs together and wrap with a twist tie at the bottom of the bulbs. Gather the next 6 bulbs and wrap. Keep going around the tree to the end of the strand. Repeat for the next strand. I then stored them in large Zip Lok bags.
Then next year test each strand. Take twist tie off off of first bunch of bulbs and put on tree. Repeat to end of strand. You can drape the strand over your shoulder while you work around the tree. It goes real quickly as the strand doesn’t get tangled or in your way.
My lights lasted years this way.
I had a small fake tree for my son that he decorated each year with small toys and Happy Meal prizes. He was very proud of it.
I don’t want to live forever—how boring. I just want to be healthy for as long as I live.
She is fond of her granny? I didn’t expect that.
Oh no, would you really want to eat something that has been worked over by a kid? P.S. I love marzipan.
