…….and Best Wishes for a healthy, and fabulous New Year!
I love Christmas—the decorations, the spicy and sweet aromas of baking, the twinkling tree lights, the Christmas music! But all the work leading up to it is utterly exhausting, so this morning, I slept in, then camped out on the sofa watching movies, watching backed-up shows on the DVR—watching the back of my eyelids. Played samurai sudoku, & now playing on the computer—a much earned L-A-Z-Y day!
But the ends really do justify the means–which justify the ends! Picture this—My Mother’s small house, big family. 21 adults, 18 children. Spread over 3 floors, 1 tree down for kid’s gifts, 1 tree up for adult’s gifts. And enough trips in and out and up and down to mark almost 5 miles on a pedometer.
The front pocket of my fun, fur-trimmed Santa’s Helper apron held a camera at the ready—but sadly, went largely unused because I was so busy–alas, memories will have to sustain me!
I sooo regret not having a camcorder rolling on a chalk board pantry door as family members noticed their names listed under NAUGHTY and NICE—the chalk was hot with the many re-writes!!!
<— This one was just about to lawyer-up!
With Christmas now behind us, and its many related projects, I can start to focus on a new little cabinet! Remember this project? It’s first on the list when I finally get back in my Page 10 studio! Stay tuned!
