Well, here we are.
There is so much to do. I still need to scrub the zombie blood off the bathroom floor. There are 3 weeks until Thanksgiving, 8 until Christmas, and our family celebrates Hanukkah in there too.
I want these weeks to be filled with fun and warmth and creativity.
I want to make sure I spend great time with my friends and family, and I want to be present, in the moment, not just rushing through the motions of togetherness. My intention of finishing all the handmade gifts by now has NOT materialized, but I do have several started and a few really close to finished. Handmade Holidays and supporting local and independent merchants is still a top priority for me. As is creative reuse, and all that jazz.
It occurs to me, That This Will Take Some Planning. So, today I start my Personal Holiday Advent.
Today is Day 1.
List and Calendar Day.
Itemize, Prioritize, and Realize:
It's time to pick the best, and chuck the rest.
Go forward in that right frame of mind.
