Just wanted to post this for those who have not seen it. Something easy for the mind and eyes with the morning coffee:)

I have to say, the decorations are just yummy.  But not as beautiful as the First Dog, Bo:

Is that cute or what?

Now, I have Christmas decorations up but, believe me, it wasn't easy.

I have learned over the years to plug in the lights and test them before they go up. Check.

So, up they go.  I then discover that I put them up backwards (there is no outlet at the end where I need to plug in.).  Sigh.

So I take down about 100 feet of lights. I put them up again. One of the strings now won't work. Sigh. I take the string down.

I get another string, and this one works just fine. By the time I put it up, a six foot section no longer works. Sigh.  I leave it up.

I ran out of replacement bulbs, but since I can't seem to find the problem with the few I have, am going to replace them all in that six foot section and hope for the best.

The battery driven outdoor Christmas wreath works like a charm. Yeah. Sunday I get the live tree for outside and it gets decorated. After 25 years of service, our other tree died in late summer, sadly. It was a little lopsided and irregular, but hey, so are we so it fit right in.

How are your decorations going?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
