Two more sleeps until Christmas. I could use another week!
It seems we’ve been doing a lot of surviving lately. Putting one foot in front of the other until the end of the school year finally arrived.
In the week since (yes, just a week - though it feels like two), we have already made a quick dash to visit the in-laws a few hours away. Since returning the air-conditioning at the shops has been far more inviting than the sticky heat at home.
Gifts are all purchased now, but certainly not wrapped.
We’ve been madly cleaning and I’m happy to report that the rumpus room does still exist. Which is just as well, my family is hoping to celebrate together in there.
Last night the first of the decorations were hung. Umm, better late than never?
I’m beginning to breathe again. I’ve decided that bedroom doors exist for a reason. The joy of the season is not worth trading for a perfect abode.
So here’s to happy memories made with family, quiet moments with meaning, and plenty of peculiar treasures.
Happy Christmas everyone! May peace and joy abound in your hearts as we celebrate our Saviour’s birth!
PS: I’ll be taking a blogging break for a week or two. Once the parties have quieted down - the renovating begins! I’ll do my best to pop in somewhere between the restoring and building. Please forgive if I have paint on my nose.
