We actually hauled up the artificial tree and measured it to make sure it would fit---it's a 4-1/2-foot tree that I usually put on a lamp table, but now it will be on top of a cedar chest. I also have a cabinet in the basement that I can put Christmas stuff away in, clearing up a few other storage shelves down there for year-round stuff. I'm sitting on the new sofa, enjoying the sunshine on this side of the house. There's no TV in here because of the piano, but it'll be a nice space to relax with music or the laptop. I can wrap gifts where I can see the tree.

There's more stuff to move around, put on shelves, etc., but we need to get some lunch first.
Sounds pretty heavenly!!
