Take a moment for yourself

ladypat1December 19, 2010

How's your list coming? Mine is getting bigger instead of smaller. So, I am taking a break from the decorating. Yes, I know I am kinda late, but school was out Friday, and now I can play.

In all the chaos, don't forget the reason for the season.

Your coffee break was just what I needed. Looks wonderful. And you are so right, let's not get so caught up that we forget the reason for the season. Where I live, the church has a program called "The Living Christmas Tree". The choir makes up the tree and there are lights and carols and the Christmas Story. It is a beautiful presentation. If you go in feeling tired and harried, you come out feeling renewed and joyful.

Love this setting. The dishes are so pretty and your spreader is so cute w/cardinal. Hope you sat down and drank your coffe and enjoyed the fruit cake before doing all the decorating.

Hope you share your decorations when finished.

I'm going to make an effort to go to bed early tonight. I'm so worn out. Made and froze fudge today, made two dinners (long story), got the laundry done until after Christmas.

I'm pooped!
