Yes, that's right. The house is decorated, it's the weekend and everything is under control. If you have some unscheduled moments don't you owe it to yourself to sit down with a nice mug of cocoa (topped with whipped cream of course), and enjoy the moment? What good is a lighted tree, beautifully wrapped gifts, and all the other joys of the season if you are overextended? Have one of those cookies you baked. I know, they're supposed to go in a gift basket, nobody will miss the one(s) you eat. Promise.
This year we find ourselves with a lot of free time. Less programs to go to, fewer parties, and the girls are spending more time with husband/boyfriend. Today we went for coffee, did our grocery shopping before anyone else was at the store, and Earl even took some time to judge the teen cookie baking contest at church. Hey, it's a tough gig but somebody's got to do it ;>)
Now we're home and while he bakes his last dessert of the month (I'll share what his grand finale is tomorrow) I'm grabbing some down time. When he is done with the kitchen I'll make some biscotti. While I wait for the kitchen, let me just point out the awesome new slippers I got at Target a few weeks ago. Leopard print...and sequined all over so my feet sparkle when I walk. I know, hate me.
It's been a good season, and there's still a couple weeks of it left.
Enjoy as much of it staring at the lights, watching Christmas movies, and doing whatever else you find fun about Christmas. It's all about savoring the moment.
Enjoy your Saturday:>)
