Sunny Simple Sunday

 Happy Weekend! As usual we are hanging our lights or hubby is and it is 85 degrees. Not very Christmassy but hey I ain't complaining. How ready for Christmas are you? I need to get shopping. Hope to knock a bunch of it out this week.

Now for some great blogs of note from last week.

Hi Elaine! I know what you mean, and I not complaining either! Your place looks great!

Andrea at Opulent Cottage said...

I have never seen the whole front of your house -- how charming it is! I'm making a lot of gifts this year, and I need to get on it too :) Thanks for hosting!
xo, Andrea

Thanks for hostessing the party. BTW we're all coming to live with you (85 degrees, we're on our way!). Hugs ~ Mary

Thanks for hosting! It has been COLD here today and yesterday -- highs in the 40's. On Thanksgiving it was 70 and I had doors and windows open. We got one tree up and let the grandkids hang some ornaments -- all bunched on one branch near the bottom of course :-). Outdoor decorations will have to wait until next weekend.

Melanie said...

I only wish it were still 85 degrees here! ;-)

I have not begun decorating for Christmas, nor do I plan to until at least December 1st.

Kris said...

Hi Elaine. We drove up here to Big Bear yesterday, and it was 89 at the base of the mountain, and in the 50's up here. So lovely!
Your house looks pretty!

Wow, I was downright startled when I saw your kind mention of my blog! I'm honoured! We had our first snowfall last night and I'm green with envy over your temps. Thanks for hosting such a fun party.

I am certainly envious of 85 degree weather. I still have a few things blooming, but it is turning rainy and cold here. Love your features this week, especially the ice skate vase. Hope you had a wonderful Thaksgiving.

I can't imagine putting up the decs. in those temps. Goodness me! It's pouring with rain here at the moment and really miserable! Oh to be in sunnier climes! Thanks for hosting again. Joan

Chenille Cottage said...

85 degrees!!!! Yikes...I salute your sweet husband for getting out there and putting up Christmas lights. What a good sport! It's good to see he dressed accordingly. :-)

I am looking forward to visiting the wonderful blogs you have featured, Elaine. Thank you for hosting each week...I love stopping by and joining in!

Have a good week, my sweet friend,

Love your house ~ so California ranch. I have always gravitated to that style. Although it's 85 degrees there, you are off to a good start! Thanks for hosting Elaine.

Big Hugs,

Elaine, thank you for hosting your weekly party. I always enjoy joining in. Your decorations are looking good! Have a great day!

Claudia said...

Haven't started any Christmas decorating yet. 85 degrees sounds like heaven in this part of the world!


Susanne said...

I love Christmas lights, but it was one thing I never insisted on my husband doing and he never complained about it, in fact I do believe he was always quite relieved that it wasn't something I felt he needed to do, lol. Our Christmases were always quite simple, a tree and a few bobbles here and there, it just seemed like enough.
(((HUGS))) Susanne :)

Sarah said...

Haven't started decorating for the Christmas season yet. I'm going to give it another week or two. ;-)
Lots of lights are already up in our neighborhood. Looks like you are off to a good start.........Thanks for hosting ~ Sarah

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Putting up a few decorations on the inside but none outside so far! So much to do! Thanks for hosting! Linda

Rhonda said...

thank you for hosting this party.

we are just winding up Thanksgiving, after some serious house cleaning, I will decorate for Christmas and do some gift shopping and making.

Sherry said...

Your home is starting to look Christmasy! Thanks for hosting!

Doreen said...

Hi Elaine
Just found your great blog, and so glad I did. We may be in the same weather zone -- SoCal, by any chance? Yes, we've had some warm weather this weekend. I'm linking up my Colorful Chanukah Decor Tray Transformation. And now I'm following you and look forward to catching up on your posts.

85! That would make it a bit more difficult to get in the spirit ;)

The Gingerbread Gem said...

Hi Elaine, oh wow 85, that's indeed not very Christmassy. I'm ready for Christmas, but in Belgium we don't decorate until after Dec 6. We don't have Santa, but we have St. Nicholas on Dec 6.

Thank you very much for featuring me. I just found out from a comment on my blog that you'd done such a wonderful thing. I appreciate it very much. Happy Holidays!
