Simply having a wonderful Christmastime.
Enjoying the ambiance in the house.
I'm happy to say that I've slapped up the decor and haven't spend a dime - nor have I lost any sleep wondering how to decorate.
Same stuff goes in the same place every year.
It works for me, baby.
I'm sipping my new addiction.
Twinings Winter Spice tea.
There's no wrapping, there's no baking (I'll do a wee next week), there's no flurry, there's no hurry.
There's no stress, there's no mess.
Bada ba ba ba ....I'm lovin' it.
We just got some new light bulbs for our kitchen island.
Very hard to photograph.
They are the Edison Vintage bulbs by Feit.
They hang a wee bit too long out of the fixture me thinks, but maybe it's just that the other ones were up higher.
Speaking of photographing - I'm laughing at most of these pics.
Law girls - I went to college for photography.
You'd never know it.
I know a good pic when I see one, I just don't take them anymore.
I aim and shoot haphazardly and hope that I don't have a reflection of Glenco picking his nose or scratching himself.
It's reduced to that.

I'm loving this new Christmas.
I'm loving waking up every morning and my first thought is
'how can I recklessly give of myself today?'
I love thinking of kind things to do.
But it's got my heart all broken up.
There's so much need.
I bawled when I watched the news and found out people have been going to Kmarts and Walmarts and paying people's layaway accounts in full.
How cool is that?
I cry when I think of kids waking up on Christmas with nothing, not only that - perhaps a horrible family situation to boot.
In the past - I feel that Christmas was a 'look at me fest'
Look at my house!
Look at my cookies!
Look what great gifts I made!
There's nothing wrong with that - unless that's all it is.
My heart is stirring with more.
I want to start a Kindness Revolution.
Last night in bed, I bolted up and turned to Glen and said -
"Let's give it all away!"
There's something about having an empty bank account
and a full heart that really makes me feel rich.
