Peaceful gentle snow started coming down yesterday like a soft blanket covering the ground. Just what I needed to get the Christmas spirit in full swing. What are things like at your house?
If you were to stop by right now..........
bowls of homemade chex mix in process, decorations galore, stacks of Christmas cards almost ready to mail, packages to wrap, handmade ornaments in process.
cinnamon and cloves simmering on the stove, the fresh smell of Maine Fir coming from our wreaths and Christmas tree.
Christmas carols playing and the sound of chatty toddlers depending on the time of day.
what I'm not telling you....
Okay okay, it sounds really good doesn't it. Actually all that I said above is true. Here's the rest of the story that I didn't mention..............
Lots of laundry
floors that need to be vaccumed
a tree that needs to be decorated
a house that needs to be cleaned
decorations still to be put out
I'm sharing this in case there's anyone out there like me who strives to have it together, but never seems to achieve that goal.
Thankfully I have a husband who helps whenever I need him to. He's good to me, will vacuum, do dishes and even wrap presents. He's a keeper!
The images included in this post are free as usual. Please no selling of the actual images or including them in digital collage sheets for sale. Enjoy this week, remember perfection is not possible. Know when to slow down and smell the fir trees.
Hugs to all my friends out there.
