Today is the shortest day of the year. The Winter Solstice. Okay, I guess it has 24 hours just like any other day, but the fewest hours of daylight. Acckkkk- I need longer days right now, not shorter days!! I still have lots to get done before the 25th... still a little shopping to do.. still a little decorating (can you believe we don't have our tree up yet??!!).. still some baking to do.. and lots of wrapping yet to do...
I am trying to stay calm.. Christmas will come and go whether I'm ready or not, I keep telling myself.
I'm really looking forward to the several days after Christmas when I can rest. I "go on strike" for a few days, and just put my feet up and read. We eat turkey leftovers and I don't do much other than turn pages and eat the occasional chocolate. I. Can't. Wait.
wink wink). Just like fabric and chocolate, one must have a "stash"!! Here's the pile I have awaiting, I can hardly wait to delve into them. Actually there's one there that I have been reading, and am almost through, so it will be my next book review - The Gravity of Birds. However my reading time is very limited right now...
What are you reading? Do you have any books on your Christmas Wish List?
Happy Winter Solstice! I hope you are all ready for Christmas and finding some time to relax and enjoy the season.
May your longest list this Christmas be the one that counts your blessings.
