Good morning and happy Sunday!
I have my Christmas mug and my holiday tea...but yet I am still not ready for Christmas. Feelin' a bit behind. I have to make one more trip to the post office which I have been putting off as the lines are crazy every time I make the attempt. Maybe tomorrow and yes, I know it is the busiest shipping day of the year- silly Andi!
I did manage to finish my Christmas ornaments for family and friends. Although the ultimate goal would have been to make many more and send them out to all the peeps. Please remind me of this next year so that maybe I will start earlier. Don't we say that every year?
Obviously it is just a me thing because I have received the most wonderful Holiday card in the mail from loves who were on the ball. This card is from my sweet and longtime friend Sam. She even had One of my favorite tiny humans Naomi sign it...that is everything.
Then one of my dearest friends, Julie spoiled me again with an array of her beautiful photography that she made into cards. As if I could ever use them for cards. They are just toooooo gorgeous. I have an idea of what I am going to do with them, but it will need a bit more thought. Isn't she talented beyond belief?
I know that I have been mentioning Christmas over the last couple of posts, yet still somehow I feel it snuck up on me. How about you...how are you doing with all your festivities?
This week has been a rather draining one. Not that I am not grateful but sometimes work can be, well work. All I know is that the weekend was used as a breath, regroup and look at all the positives type of weekend and I know that will help in my approach to the coming work week. Do you ever have to check yourself sometimes in order to bring peace into your life?
One of the highlights of the weekend was celebrating my most amazing mother's birthday a few days early. My sis and I always try to make it a special birthday since it is so close to Christmas and sometimes December babies tend to get lost in all the hoopla. Plus she deserves a special day as she is just one of those people-everyone wants her to be their mom and their friend. She is truly the best person I know and I am beyond grateful that I have the privileged of being her daughter.
Okay so this has been a bit of a rambly post. Sorry about that. It sort of matches my brain right now. I am going to hush it up with some knitting on the blanket, a few episodes of Shetland and of course holiday tea.
Sending you much love and wishing you the best day today!
