Okay, so the post title is a little lame...but I did spend an entire day adding red to our normal decor
I like to decorate the house with red, silver, and clear glass (along with greenery)
There is just something about the deep candy red next to the sleek shiny silver that makes everything sparkle
I still have a ways to go on the decorating...but today was a good start
Oh, and guess what wasn't very cheery and took the wind right out of my sails...
Finding this guy on top of my Christmas decorations in the garage...luckily he was already dead
(I think he got inside the smooth plastic bin,couldn't climb out, and starved...which does make me sad)
But dead or alive, placing my hand on him really freaked me out!
The rest of the ornament unpacking was a very slow process as I very gingerly looked for more "surprises"
After not seeing one in a few months, I get lulled into a false sense of security and forget to be careful
But I will remember to always keep an eye out for these critters now!
