In case you don’t know, I’ve moved Mom to Harrison Springs “Health Campus” (aka nursing home). Lucky I did, too, because she had no sooner got there than she flipped into full-blown pneumonia. No, she didn’t get it because she went there, it just flowered after she arrived.
ANYWAY, she and I have decorated her room for Christmas, meaning she gave directions and I did the work. Fair enough. Division of labor, and all that.
Here’s her door.
Her tv has doors! They’re open here, showing her Christmas Kermit and a nutcracker I bought her this year. She has a HUGE nutcracker she puts out on Christmas at her house, but I thought the little one would be better, considering all the equipment she has rolling around.
#3 Daughter bought her a wee Christmas tree, and I decorated it. She likes the lights to twinkle. You can’t see it, but I even gave her my hand-made Christmas pickle.
Back before she got shaky, she used to do stained glass work. Here’s one of her projects, currently on top of her tv cabinet.
That wasn’t a kit. She bought sheets of colored glass, drew the patterns on them, cut them with a glass cutter, fitted them together, and soldered them. Charlie made wooden stands for each piece.
This isn’t any kind of a door, unless you want to call it a-door-able. A group of middle school kids came around and visited the residents and gave them stuffed animals and Christmas cards.
The inside of the card says, “Ho ho ho! I love you! Merry Christmas!”
And, outside the emergency exit, I spotted this.
In case you can’t tell, Rudolph has antlers sticking up over his front windows. 😀

Oh, by the way, HAPPY MONKEY DAY!!!
A WRITING PROMPT BASED ON MY POST: Someone decorates for a holiday in a very reduced way.
