Time to breathe; Christmas is almost here…

With the flurry of activities that are associated with the upcoming holidays, I imagine there are some that might be surprised that I’m finding the time to relax — but I am.

I volunteered with the Christmas musical, Journey to the Manger, and made some really cute — but appropriate Christmas ornaments for the “Depression themed” Christmas tree for the Christmas musical. I’ll have too share pictures of what I made in a later post.

Last week was extremely busy, with the rehearsals and performances (piano recital and Christmas musical) my daughter was involved with.All those events ended this past Sunday,  and now I have time to relax.

I am helping organize the third grade Christmas party for my daughters class, however that’ll be a breeze compared to last week.

Because of my lighter schedule, I have a bit more time to get creative in the kitchen, take more pictures of the great outdoors, and of course work on a variety of crafts; crochet, sewing, jewelry making, and making cards. I’m currently working on a food recipe post, and will post that later this week.

Question: If you celebrate the holidays, what are some of the activities you’re doing?

    Hi @Liane Markus,
    It’s truly a special occasion, and a great time to sit back and reflect on Christ’s birth. In our household we don’t get too commercial, we do use this special day as a time to spend with the family, and honor Christs birth.

    Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
