Please forgive me...I know not what I do...

Wayne and I drove to Medicine Hat (Alberta) to go shopping today.
(One less tax than Saskatchewan... power to Alberta!!!)
We had some house renovation things to buy.
(Renovation photos to follow this weekend.)

I was looking for something for the front of my house.
We went into a very enjoyable store.
Garden & Christmas Decorations!

Well now ~ how much joy can one girl stand?
Garden AND Christmas decorations?
I just couldn't help myself.
This cute little Christmas pail was calling my name...
and it was on sale!
(err... at least that's what I told hubby... ha ha...)
After all...
in less then 5 months I will be putting up my Christmas Decorations!
One can never start too soon!


For some reason no ones comments are showing up
nor are they counting under the "0 enjoyable comments".
{Though I am still getting them via e-mail!}

Update: If you are experiencing the same issues, go to your "Dashboard" and then "Help Center" (bottom right of page) and then type in "ongoing issue with comments" and you can see there's a whole bunch of blogs complaining about the same issue for July 5. On the first thread from "Dark UFO" there is a link for a form to fill out for blogger. It only takes a moment. The more people that complain the sooner it will get fixed ~ hopefully! :)

In the meantime ~ not to worry ~ your
lovely comments are still received via e-mail!

They don't say "Christmas in July" for nothing!! ;)

Lin said...

Dearie, dearie me! Dear Catherine, how have I gotten so behind on my blog reading? Well, I've only missed 4 posts. Four wonderful funny, lovely, down to earth posts. I'm okay now, though. =]

What a dream! I think that you had my dream by mistake. No time to change out of pjs, I'm too busy chasing after the wind aka 3 little boys who are dragging dirt into this house faster than you can say 'gopher'!

The birds in the birdbath is so wonderful. Today, it is 90 or so degrees and humid. It's horrible and I've been beyond cranky!!! I think that I could use some Christmas in July!

It's lovely to hear from you, Cat!

Love, Katy xo

Is it okay that I call you 'Cat' sometimes?

Terra said...

Oh my Cat, you love gardening and Christmas as much as I do, and to think you found it combined in 1 object, a green Holiday pail. How perfect is that? My book's Christmas blog starts again today :) so yup, I love the season.

It's never too early to start buying Christmas decorations! Such a cute pail!

P.S. I love that Ikea dresser. It was damaged in my recent move and I noticed they no longer sell it, though.

Catherine said...

You are all so sweet for commenting! For some reason ~ all your lovely comments are not showing up in here (thought I am getting them via e-mail).

So this is a test ~ will my comment show up?

Catherine said...

Hmmm.... something strange is going on. My comment showed up ~ I have 11 other's though. And it's showing "0 enjoyable posts" on my blog.

Very strange.

Stacey Dawn said...

I hope you have a wonderful day!

He, He, can't blame you a bit. I like to listen to Christmas music in July when it is hot and I have been thinking about making some Christmas ornaments this year.
That bucket looks like it will hold lots of smiles.
