All in all I've been feeling a lack of time to think and it's affected the blogging some as well. Or rather, I have been thinking, but it's all been about what I need to get done, and work, and Christmas plans, and planning for this and planning for that, and whatever else can squeeze into my consciousness has been trivial. I think it will be better after Christmas though...we have about three more things coming up, and then Christmas, and then I should have time to think! Which will be nice.
I try thinking after I get in bed at night but...well, it puts me to sleep thoroughly. ;) To quote from one of Agatha Christie's mysteries:
'You never realize that by lying back in an arm-chair with the eyes closed one can come nearer to the solution of any problem. One sees then with the eyes of the mind.'
'I don't,' I said. 'When I lie back in an arm-chair with my eyes closed one thing happens to me and one thing only!'
So yeah. I've been busy. We have a holiday concert to go to on Saturday, the Christmas service at church with a potluck afterwards, Christmas Eve service, and then Christmas. Which reminds me, I should probably get going on wrapping presents sometime soon this week because I'm not going to have a lot of time! And it's only oh, 6.5 days till Christmas. :) Yay!
And here's the pictures of our Christmas decorations. :) Although some of you have probably seen these already.
Tree before decorating:
See how real it looks?:
Aw, little Petunia:
My grandma made these paper cuttings when she worked at Old Salem, and I just thought of mounting them on cardstock this year.
Gracie does not approve of Christmas trees:
Colin asked if the hat helped me decorate faster...well, I was kinda hyper. I scurried around like a...a...an overgrown elf! That's it! ...um, yeah...
Anyway, that's that. Hopefully my blog posts will make more sense when I have more time.
