Watch out folks, its started. Friday evening with much heralding came Hallmarks Open House. Back-to-back Christmas movies to run all weekend. Constant reminder commercials of the newest additions. What craziness! We have just barely survived The Great Pumpkin.
I find myself feeling the overload already. I find I am accomplishing nothing on this dreary Saturday but sitting under a blanket and watching the drivel. So whats the problem right? Just shut off the set. The problem with that is that then you hear the drizzle and feel the dampness in the air and just burrow further under your blanket. Not a bad way to spend your Saturday if you have a cup of tea and a good book but alas I have neither.
I call a friend, just to hear her voice. We are both of the ‘wake me after Christmas’ group and are thankful that for Christmas shopping, our grown kids like gift cards to do thier own shopping. Just online shopping for a few things for ourselves, right?
Wait!! My husband is going for his walk and volunteering to walk to the library to pick up the book I have on hold. Wheres those hot apple cider packets I saw in the cupboard and my favorite mug. Just enough time to read a couple chapters and have dinner before that new Hallmark Christmas movie comes on at 8. I might even bake cookies this year like the ones on the commerial. Life is good. And how was your Saturday?
