It’s amazing how much good a full night’s sleep can do. Obviously I was more exhausted than I thought last night … I was still feeling a little sluggish yet this morning, but I managed to find enough energy and stamina to complete our Christmas decorating. I got a little bit of a jump start yesterday … but only a little. Now we’ve got the nativity set, the Christmas village and the tree up. And not a moment too soon because I don’t think I’ve got an ounce of energy left.
The good news is that there is nothing else that I need to do today … so my plan is to spend the afternoon quilting. I haven’t picked up needle and thread since Tuesday … it feels like it’s been a lot longer than that! I’ll get to enjoy looking at the tree while quilting … I think I’ll tune into Pandora to listen to some Christmas music too.
I know I’ve said it before, but this year is really flying by. It feels like it ought to be, at the latest, Labor Day … yet here we are with Halloween and Thanksgiving under our belts, in the Christmas season. Slow down!!
Today I’m thankful for:
- The scent of a real Christmas tree
- The twinkle of lights on the Christmas tree
- Christmas music playing in the background
- The reason we celebrate – Jesus
