Tis the Season...

Are you ready? 

this is exactly how I was feeling...

then throw in a little of this...

and none of this...

  I just couldn't get into it.  

I finally decided to get a grip and take Rudolph's reins into my own hands and smarten up... this is my favourite time of year.  What am I thinking... I'm letting it slowly slip away.  

I finally figured out what I really needed was to embrace the season, not the stress.   It was time to stop and smell the poinsettia's ... not so pretty...

I put half of my tree up it keeps shrinking every year.  I then embellished my house with half of the decorations too.   I am really liking the less is more theory the older I am getting.  Less to take down too.

Now, time for the shopping... I let my fingers do the walking and did it all on line... what a fabulous feature that is.  You can bargain shop and never leave your chair.

yes, it is a wonderful time of year, afterall...

and I now have time to watch all my favourite black and white Christmas movies and relish every minute of them as I enjoy the scrumptous sweets I "had" hiding in the freezer for Christmas Eve guests.   Hmmmm... can you buy sweets on line? 

I'm so ready now... bring it on... I am so excited... shhh, I know one present under the tree from the big guy... it involves spray painting... and I have just the room to try it on. 

I am off  for 11 straight days and I can't wait... expect to see a few changes around my house...

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for visiting and making this such a memorable year... and to
wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a safe and blessed New Year...

Hugs, Deb

now where did I buy those coconut squares????

Merry Christmas Deb, your post sounds a little like I feel at times. I just got the lights on the tree this morning and the boys and their "significant others" are going to help with the decorations! I will be keeping the tree up until after New Years Day.....Looking forward to seeing what you work on during your "holiday". Blessings, Denise

Oh Deb, you know the older we get easier and quicker we tire. I think maybe that's your situation and not that you're a scrooge :o) Sounds good doesn't it? LOL. Besides, you have Mya for Christmas inspiration! Online shopping will work in a pinch too!
Enjoy it my friend... Merry Christmas! Hugs~Carol
