And so I returned from NYC and totally got sidetracked with other holiday activities and just plain ol’ life! Kathy sez she’s been juggling lotsa balls~ that I clearly understand. Laura’s now here in the area; she and I (dear Kathy’s juggling act keeps her in DE) are planning on connecting with one another, tomorrow, Thursday, 18th of December … after I attend a holiday concert at my 13-years’ old niece’s school. The concert is at 8:30 am! Usually at that time I’m still in my PJs and enjoying my morning tea, journaling, reading, etc.
Today’s Journal Your Christmas prompt is to make a list of what is left to do…after all, Christmas is just 8 days away. Where did the time go? It seems that just yesterday we were welcoming December. On my list, and something I do annually, is visit a local nursery. I love to meander through it: taking in the smell of evergreens; looking at all the colorful Christmas flowers, especially the painted poinsettias and checking out the Christmas shoppe.
I made the visit today! And glad that I did. T’was a welcomed break and one that was definitely in tune with the senses. The best part: it was free – though I did buy a few items: a Christmas cactus, a variegated poinsettia, some Fraser and Noble fir bunches, an ornament, a 9″ ceramic planter and some Christmas ribbons.
And yes Kathy, you need to buy some poinsettias. Here’s a treat for you: Painted poinsettias repainted in Waterlogue.
