Loving that we will have a simple Thanksgiving at home.
Enjoying time spent by the fire knitting flowers for the school winter faire.
Wishing that I had more time to finish all the projects that I so optimistically planned.
Knowing that items will be kicked off the list left and right starting tomorrow.
Understanding that being kind to myself and getting enough rest is "gift" enough for those living with me.
Laughing because I always seem to think that during the holidays I can do the equivalent of about three people's tasks.
Hoping that I can clean up my studio.
Breathing...well, that's just something I have to remind myself to do sometimes.
Thinking that an adult sweater has a lot of stitches.
Smiling because no matter the "mood" I have been in, grumpy mostly, I still enjoy showing up here everyday.
Thanking all of my lovely readers for the comments and inspiration you all provide.
Crossing my fingers that if said "studio" is cleaned that I will have a project to show you tomorrow.
What are you doing today?
Thinking....about starting a blog

Today I am working in my studio, I took the time to clean it last night and I feel like it is sparkling this morning. I was feeling stuck in a painting, hoping that refreshing my space will do the trick. Thanks so much for the little package of treats that arrived, so exciting. We loved the little stamped books, and my kids were very happy to have the lollipops. I also saved that pretty yarn ribbon. Thanks so much for my prize!

Today I am still avoiding enumerating all the projects I have in mind for the holidays, and all the tasks I still have to complete for Winter Faire, and remembering to order my Thanksgiving turkey before next Wednesday ... And I'm so inspired by your blog -- as usual. Thank you!

Today I am trying to knockout the tail end of a migraine, ugh. Then I really need to sit down and write a list of what all I need to do before Christmas, so that I can realistically see what I can and can't do. If my book gets here in the mail though, I will be making a cup of tea and reading while the kids are down and the rest of my plans can wait until tomorrow.

Thinking about starting laundry but probably will work on a new shirt for my little guy instead. Why is it so hard to do things we know we are supposed to do?!
Loving your blog!

Writing--and procrastinating writing.

I am busy for our school's christmas fair too (winter elf creating) and in the process of pairing down my list so that all the creating stays enjoyable. Our christmas fair has a lovely market full of hand made items that will help with my christmas list. If it can't be hand made by me hand made by other local mama's is just as wonderful. The gift of a peaceful happy engaged mama is the number one gift I have put at the top of my christmas list to help keep myself in check.
