"Sometimes my head gets so full of thoughts that
my brain gets dizzy!" me
So much to do, so many places to be, so many people we love, so much food, lots of food, groceries to be bought, and then put somewhere in my already full pantry and refrigerator...
I hope I can do it all!
This is when I write. I put it all on paper, make lists, and schedules. Not for others, but for myself. I get out my good old spiral bound steno pad, a couple of post-its and a pencil with a good eraser. I tear about 5 sheets out and just start writing anything that needs to be done, etc. Sometimes I do this over a 2-3 day period as things come together.
Then I take these loose sheets and organize them. There will be several menues, grocery lists, schedules, contact trackers (a list of who knows about what), gifts for whom and what to get, etc.
I turn off the television and listen to Christmas Music (on now is Michael Buble Christmas album on Spotify). And since I have come to know a dear blogger friend named Linda at Linda's Life Journal, I also light a special candle. This was Linda's way of welcoming her favorite month, September.
I take a moment to honor this moment in my life and it can change the rest of my day.
Every moment is precious as we all know, but this little ceremony honoring "this" moment in my life gets me moving. Every moment is a "this" moment, I believe.
It just feels good!
I also made a batch of homemade chocolate fudge...
and ate the whole thing, all by myself and enjoyed it, with ice cold milk. Not all at once, but almost, while totally ignoring the portable scales across the room. And I don't feel a bit guilty about it. Merry Christmas to myself I thought, as I savored each and every delectable, scrumptious, tasty, delicious, yummy bite.
Now my brain is not so dizzy!
As life goes...
I'll just say it in a photo this time...
"Pull my finger"
doesn't everyone have one?
