monday mornings

i can't really update on the weekend because nothing really happened. i am in preparation mode for the 'h' word- so i worked on that. i start earlier than most because i have mostly packages to send around the country. it is a delicate balancing act to get the packages there by the deadline with fresh goodies. so- i spread it out because i am also a firm believer in enjoying each season for what it is. this is the season of thanksgiving- and while there is much to be changed and fixed- it is always good for the soul to focus on what we have to be thankful for. so- that's what i am attempting to do. hubby and i don't really 'celebrate' christmas- for reasons discussed here ad nauseaum so i won't bore you with them again- but we do celebrate the season. thanksgiving, yuletide- those customs and holidays sprang from folks wanting to celebrate life's bounty and be together with folks they loved. so- do yourself a favor and simplify this season. enjoy it to the max and make some new traditions. the gifts aren't what's important- the sentiment behind them are. better to have one thoughtful gift than 50 bought for the sake of opening. having my cuppa :)
