This series may not happen every week, but at least from time-to-time, I plan to offer a "Saturday Suggestion" for a helpful way to "make the most - - of a moment." Today's suggestion comes from my own concern that I may have missed an opportunity to do just that ...
Don't wait till it's miserably cold outside to string your holiday lightsI'm looking out at my snow-covered trees and property, and hoping the white stuff will melt. When and if it does, I plan to scurry out there, and string my holiday lights, before it snows again.

have waited to decorate, on too many occasions, until we've had to do it in miserable conditions. I'm hoping to have a nice day yet this year to complete this task!
A few years ago I discovered a really useful trick to hanging lights on tall trees. The secret to it is a light hanging pole, an easily purchased tool (which I have found to be well worth every penny!) The article I wrote a while back, The Easy Way to Hang Christmas Lights gives a detailed explanation of exactly how to make use of it, as well as some safety precautions to observe when hanging lights. I can't imagine hanging (or dismantling) lights on our trees without this tool now. You can learn more about it (and even purchase it) right here:
I don't like to rush the season, so I probably will still wait till at least the week of Thanksgiving to put out our holiday wreaths, etc - but until I actually let electricity flow to the lights, no one will even notice they are there.
It is not too early to put up holiday lights ... I just hope I'm not too late!
When do put up your holiday lights?
