December 15

Only 10 days til Christmas! I'm finding it hard to believe that.
I finally put up the tree last night... just a few more decorations to put in place. Then there's a menu to plan, and presents to wrap and ship... and buy...

This was my contribution to the 12 days of Christmas gift exchange... mug cozies. I had to laugh, though, when I got a couple of emails this morning asking me exactly what they were... one very kind lady said that she loved the birdie a lot, but could I please let her know what it was for so that she could place it on the right thing! I guess I should have put a little note in with it...

This verse was a good reminder to me today.

 "But Mary treasured all of these things, pondering them in her heart."

I often forget to stop and think about why I'm doing what I do, and I forget to treasure the little things in my life. I get myself into autopilot mode, and don't take notice of what's going on around me. So I'm going to make an effort to do that more often.

Today I'm treasuring:
  • snuggles from my daughter
  • eggnog in tea 
  • the sound of melting snow
  • the smell of cinnamon sticks
  • warm slippers on my feet


  1. I just wanted to let you know that your exchange with Stephanie was wonderful. I'm always amazed at the creativity of my fellow bloggers. Isn't it nice to share?

  2. Oh I've done the same thing- I was out of town for Christmas, but left behind "bag holders" for everyone- basically tubes with elastic at the top and bottom to hold plastic bags. My mom called me and left a message- I could hear everyone laughing in the background as she said "These are great...what are they? Sleeves?"

    Love the cup cozies :)
