December check in

I don't know where the time is going. I'm trying not to be so hard on myself about getting everything done before Christmas. I haven't sent any cards out, I've baked zero cookies, and I've made zero gifts. As a busy year winds down, a year that included two moves, two job changes, and a host of ups and downs, I'm trying to be more patient with myself, and take the time to just be. Moving into 2014, I want to practice more of this.  Because to just be, feels good.

The kitties have been doing a lot of this.  Napping with   on each other.

 It is very, very wintery in my neck of the woods. It has been snowing all weekend. I got my exercise in today as I shoveled the white stuff for 40 minutes. It feels very holiday-ish.

I am caught up with Donna's quilt-a-long. I am having so much fun stitching up these blocks!

Of course, one  of my favorite things about Christmas is decorating the tree. Real, of course. Always a real tree.

Happy Holidays!
