Like many of you probably, I always feel a little overwhelmed this time of year with all the holiday hoopla. I have whittled my gift giving list way down, and I don't put nearly as much energy into holidays as I once did, but still...it's busy and crazy, nevertheless, with everyone arriving so soon for Christmas.
I yi yi...
Truth be told- as much as I enjoy being together with everyone, I love the month of January when it is all behind us for another year.
I often feel in January, like I do after winter's thaw in March, that I can relish the many carefree months ahead, before things get zany again.
Last summer my camera got dropped down the stairs and I have yet to repair it. I'm still in a quandary whether to pay the $180 to fix it, or just get a new one, so unfortunately, I don't have a single holiday photo to share. As you can imagine, a blogger without a camera is kind of like a cook without a Cuisinart, or a seamstress without a seam ripper. The good news is that I can at least recycle last year's photos of Christmas if you happened to have missed them.
Let us be thankful for all that we have-
for our home,
and our health,
for each other.
Each day is a blessing.
I hope you all drive safely, have fun,
and are able to be with someone you love.
(and get more sleep than I am getting)
