This is the December I've been coming to for quite a while.Cutting back every yr on quilted gifts & doing my shopping in the Fall.Doing more shopping on line & having gifts shipped directly to the recipient.Using less decorations & enjoying them more.
Dec is my gift to myself. If I want to sew, I do, or not as the case may be, no deadlines.Same with baking/making goodies.No rush.I have time to look & admire all the quilts etc posted on here.We have time to see the Christmas light show,time for whatever interests us.We spend a couple eves with TV off,going thru old pics of family yrs ago, many no longer with us.Time for Chevy Chase's funny holiday movie,seeing "It's A Wonderful Life" & loving all the music of the season.
No more Black Friday shopping! It is in many ways, the best gift I ever gave myself.Don't know why it took so long
to happen.Maybe it's just age?
