I know it seems weird — but I was really excited to see our pillar on our front porch today. It was one of those little details that I thought maybe I had forgotten to tell them to add to the house. Pat kept assuring me that there would be a pillar – because there was one in the drawing of the house – and I reminded him that he had originally thought we had a double-window in the front based on the same drawing!
I couldn’t help obsessing about that darn pillar! I have plans for that pillar! I want to decorate it for Christmas – not that I have ever done a lot of outdoor decorating for Christmas in the past — always been too busy or had no money for those types of things – but now, I have plans.
I want to find a way to hang my American flag from that pillar. It was my mother’s flag and she flew it every Fourth of July and every other holiday where a flag is required. I might not be able to use the pillar because it is made out of aluminum – but now, I have plans.
I want to decorate it for Halloween — mind you, I have never decorated outside for Halloween, but now, I have plans.
So every day I have waited for that pillar to show up on my front porch – and tonight when we drove by — it took me a minute to realize that the pillar was there! My plans are beginning to take shape — we will celebrate Christmas in this house. We will have a Fourth of July party in this house. We will give out TONS of chocolate to neighborhood kids in this house. I can hardly wait! There is so much to do and so much living to be done in this house – and boy do I have plans!
