"Whew" is what I say after decorating the tree in the dining room and. . .
the tree in the family room. It's so nice to be all done with that job. Time now to put my feet up and enjoy the magic of the lights.
Thinking it might be fun to try capturing the blue hour as a backdrop to my blue/white Christmas tree, I kept backing up trying to get in as much of the 9' tree as possible.
That's where the "oops" came in.
Seems I backed right onto the vacuum hose.
A little candid shot as I tried to steady myself, which was a bit like being on a teeter totter. Didn't realize my finger pressed the camera button while all the action was happening. I got quite a kick out of this shot as I was reviewing my photos.
I'm happy to report that I was able to get off the hose before I heard a thud or a boom or a crash.
Ah, the hazards of Christmas decorating!
You haven't had any of those, have you?
All I can say is I'm glad I was the only one home for this event.
The men in my family would have had trouble keeping a straight face over this one.
For now, I'm off to enjoy the fruits of my labor. Right after I get that pesky vacuum put away.
