Live Real. Eat Real.

Random Tuesday Exhaustion

It’s been a wonderful and fun 5 days, but today this guy goes home:

It was marvelous to take photos of something not food-related for a change, but I must point out that this handsome young man is laying on the floor.

Which means that I was laying on the floor.

I was tempted to not get up.

I guess it could be worse – Beloved got to do stuff like this:

I have to tell you – I do NOT know how people my age handle being parents of small children (and you know who you are).  We had a great time, but after 5 days, we’re exhausted.

Sometimes I get a hit from some place like Nepal or Zimbabwe, and think to myself, “Wow – they have internet access there?”  Not that I’m complaining – they’re reading my blog, after all.

Apparently, good taste is global.

One of the search terms that will find my blog this month is “upside down christmas tree chandelier.”

For the uninitiated, this is why:

This is our “formal” tree, handing in our formal dining room (we have an “informal” tree in our informal family room).

I was a bit surprised to find that upside-down Christmas trees are becoming quite popular; every time someone new sees ours, they just can’t get over it.

“I’ve never seen one of those before!!”

Once I started getting hits from this search term, I Googled it and there are quite a few out there.  I also learned that while the tradition of hanging fir trees upside down goes back to the Middle Ages, it is now the custom to have the tips pointing up – towards heaven – and many people feel that upside-down Christmas trees are disrespectful…even sacrilegious.

Well, that does it.  I’m never getting rid of it now.

Well, that’s about all the random I have today.  Now go.  Visit Stacy.  Become one with the randomness that is Tuesday.
