This week marked the beginning of the holiday season in our house. Friday found me putting up our indoor lights and putting garland over our front door and railings. Several strings of lights from last year did not work and this problem was rectified easily enough by stopping at a Target and purchasing new lights. Saturday morning broke dark and gloomy with heavy rain. The rain made easy work of the remaining snow on the roof. That meant that I was able to get on the roof to put a wreath on the house. It stopped raining about 10:00 am, so I took the dog for a walk and when we returned I went into the garage and brought the wreath into the house.

The wreath has lights, so I plugged them in to test them. Unfortunately, only one half of the wreath lit up! Rather than give up on the wreath and getting a new one, I took a string of lights we had and threaded it around the wreath where the lights had gone out. The new lights worked but the colors between the old and new lights find’t quite match. The new set had a bluish tint and the older lights were a bit more yellowish. But, they were close enough!

So I took the wreath upstairs. My wife Barb had cleared a path in her craft room, to enable me to get at the window through which I could climb onto the the roof. Once cleared, I opened the window, took out the screen and climbed onto the roof. Barb handed me the wreath and I hung it on the wall of the house and then took the extension cord and tossed it over the edge of the roof. We closed the window and I went downstairs and out of the house to attach the extension cord and view the results.

I plugged in the cord and backed up to a position from which I could view the wreath. None of the lights worked!

I tried the plugs, nope, something had to be wrong at roof level. I went back upstairs and out to the roof. I was able to get one half of the lights working, the set that I had just added to the wreath. What do we do? I had brought our replacement bag of lights upstairs with us. I asked Barb to bring another set of matching lights. I plugged the new set in and they worked! Luckily, it was in the low 40’s F., so it was not difficult to add the new set to the wreath.

Things break, they do not last forever. But when things go like they did this morning, you have to ask yourself whether life is on your side!

Did you ever have the feeling that life is just no on your side sometimes?

Edited to change they to there. Thanks Susan!
