Rocking Your World Friday Week 47

Here we are at the end of another week, and what a mixed bag of a week it's been.

Let's start with my smile for the week. Finally, after two years of saying it, Mr R and I went out and bought a new artificial tree. 7 1/2 feet of pre-lit beauty. Of course, as soon as we brought it home we had to put it up and decorate it. No sense leaving it in the box hanging around for another couple of weeks right? Sorry for the not-so-great cell phone pic.

And the little Gorgeous helping Papa put ornaments on the tree.

While we were at it, we put up some decorations outside. It seems we started a trend because now the neighbour across the road has put up his outdoor lights as well. I love it when the neighbourhood looks festive!

On the down side, I had a bit of chair accident at work. While leaning over to hand paperwork to someone, my chair tipped right over and spilled me onto the floor. Wouldn't have been too bad except I landed on the arm and now my thigh has a lovely dark purple bruise that is bigger than my hand and hurts like crazy. Serves me right I guess--next time, don't be so lazy and get up!

I've had a couple of normal length days, a couple of late days and managed to get out by 3:15 pm on Thursday--that was pure bliss.

This weekend we have planned to go Xmas shopping for the little Gorgeous and with any luck will have it all done and wrapped up by Sunday.

So, nothing too exciting, but I will hook up with Virginia and Annie and see what everyone else has been up to.

Don't forget about the give-away I announced on November 16--just leave a comment on any of my posts from November 16-22 for a chance to win a set of my Xmas Cards of the Month. I will post anywhere, so don't be shy and do leave a comment to enter!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week!



  1. What a fab tree and what a little cutie helping to decorate it too :-)

  2. Ah bless tree up my 15 year old has been desperate for us to do ours but I insist on waiting until 1 December, feeling very unprepared for the festivities as it were - most unlike me. Loving the photo of little gorgeous helping out too! Hope you manage some great shopping this weekend!

  3. Wow! That's a whopper! Very pretty. I don't blame you for putting it up, although it is a bit early....
    I come from Holland where they celebrate StNikolaas on dec the 5th. No tree goes up until after those festivities. And I still do that although I don't live in Holland anymore.
    Have a good week,

  4. Your tree looks lovely. What a dear little helper too helping with the decorations. So sorry to hear about you fall. Hope you feel better soon. Barbxx

  5. I love your tree, just as I love mine, but it won't go up until early December. When we first came out to Spain, nothing happened until December, but a few decorations and food specialties are beginning to appear in the shops now. Our real celebration isn't until 6th January - Three Kings day.How nice to have a little helper too. Kate xx

  6. Lovely tree and very cute helper. Christmas will be here before we know where we are. Have a great weekend Angela x

  7. What a wonderful tree. And yes I agree it would be silly to have put it away!! Take care Zo xx
