|Pink Christmas Cactus|
Living in Florida, there will be some cold days here and there but no snow. Today, I broke a sweat while out and about doing my errands. I do have Christmas Cacti, though, that are blooming to remind me that it is December and Christmas is around the corner!
I doubt I will drink any mulled cider this year even though it's good stuff!
Most of my shopping is done. I have just a few more items to pick up and one more item to make. The Christmas cards are ordered and on their way then I'll address and send them out.
Choosing the perfect gift can sometimes be stressful but giving them is so much fun. I have a difficult time waiting until Christmas to give the gifts. So, I wrap them right away and put them under the tree so that I won't be tempted to give them early!
Lots of Christmas cantatas are being presented by churches. Go check one out. Some are major productions while others are small but just as meaningful. Our cantata is the week before Christmas. Old-fashioned Christmas carols being sung to various scenes played out by the children and youth. What is cuter and more simple than that?
I broke down today and bought some eggnog. Yum! I know there are lots of calories in eggnog but I don't care. It's only out once a year so I'm going to enjoy it for the whole month of December!
I can't wait to celebrate the birth of Christ with my family! It's a great time of year. Yes, it can be busy, hectic and stressful if you let it be. I am choosing to keep it simple this year. Simple decorations, simple gifts. Don't let the busyness of the season take away from the joy and the true meaning of Christmas! Enjoy the time spent with friends and family this Christmas season!
How 'bout you? Are you ready for Christmas?
Till next time,
