Teeny-Tiny Tree

The hubster and I usually go to Zingone's and get a not-very-large tree for Christmas. And we carry it home in our SUV (Sidewalk Utility Vehicle.)



However, this year, with the elevator still being repaired, there was absolutely no way we could manage to haul even a not-very-large tree up the stairs.

But it just doesn't seem like Christmas without a tree. So we went to Zingone's and found a tree that we could easily carry!

We brought it home and decorated it. Perfect!



It may be teeny-tiny. And it's a rosemary plant and not really a tree. But, I see memories and happiness.

Angie, the angel, is the only tree topper I've ever known. She's probably at least as old as I am and I'm pretty old!

We found the handcarved Santas at a craft fair during vacation in the Adirondack Mountains. I look at them and I'm relaxing on the porch overlooking the lake at the cabin we stay at every summer.

In the heart ornament, I see family and friends who touch our lives. Friends whose faces I can picture. Online buddies who I know only by emails, comments and avatars. To all of you, I wish you the tons of happiness contained in this teeny-tiny tree!

Beautiful story, Mary. Love reading about your city life. My tree not that grand this year either though I can't use a broken elevator as an excuse... Hope you, the hubster, and your gang all have a Merry Christmas.

Sweet story! (Almost made me want a tree actually. Then Ned bit my toes and brought me back to reality.)

Happy Holidays!
