Anyone Ready for Christmas?


Not me! I am okay with it though. Strangely enough I don't feel too stressed by it. Perhaps someone has slipped something into my morning tea and I don't know it. I am crazy busy but not stressed. Where is that coming from? Right now I have about four projects in the works. I'll have pictures soon. Not stressed there. Hmmm.


Maybe because it is also Advent, which I love. I love the prayer. The quiet. The dark. The anticipation. All of it.


Most of all because soon all of my "peeps" will be here. They start converging in about two weeks. In all of their noise, their mess, their chaos and their dirty dishes. I can't wait. Everyone will be home for Christmas this year. We have had quite the year, lots of surprises, joys, sorrows, stress, worry and delight. For some reason just thinking about all of them being home for Christmas makes me a bit teary. I don't care what doesn't get done, what lists aren't accomplished; I just kind of need to get my hands on them and hug hard! We aren't quite sure how we are going to rearrange the furniture in order to seat everyone for dinner but that will come together as well.

So faithful reader, I have to head to bed so I can get back to the sewing machine in the morning. Then it is onto the tree and decking the halls. For now I will leave you with this, you will have to provide your own tissues.

  3. Love this post! You know what is most important about Christmas. It is nice to have the shiny decorations, perfectly wrapped presents and yummy treats, but those all pale to family and the true meaning of Christmas. Wishing you continued calm, at least in your heart, no matter the rush and hectic schedule the next days bring!

  4. It's still early right? I'm going to think about it next week!

    So happy for you to have all your kids and their families with you. Not an easy task with adults!
