It has been a busy week. I've been cleaning and making things look nice. By things, I mean the living room. By nice, I mean that I've kept it swept, dusted and neat. I'm not known for my housekeeping abilities. To me, keeping an immaculate home ranks right up there with, um, all that stuff that is so unimportant to me that I can't even remember what it is.
Honestly? I find that I really enjoy my living room being clean. I enjoy that the coffee table isn't heaped with books and magazines. I enjoy that I've moved embroidery and knitting paraphernalia off the top of the entertainment center and now I can see my candles and pictures not clumped together.
Tomorrow I'll work on the bathroom and move some of my sewing stuff, my clothes for being with the animals out of the bathroom. Or at least, put up a couple dedicated hooks to hang my coveralls and sweatshirts.
I've been working on Christmas presents. I've been trying to finish some of the books I've been reading. I want to start my annual reading of Fannie Flagg's Red Bird Christmas as well as some of my other Christmas books.
Not only have I been busy but we had a snowstorm over the weekend. Not really sure that it actually was a storm - just a heavy snowfall. But it seems that over the past few years, instead of simply having snowfalls, every snow event is labeled as a snowstorm. I guess that being dramatic is good for business.
So as the evenings before Christmas wind down, I'm completing my projects and not feeling rushed.
PS I forgot that I wrote this. It is now 2 days before Christmas and I'm waiting for my oldest son to come home on the bus from Denver. I have all of my projects completed. I have a couple things I still want to buy but overall, I am very happy with what I've accomplished. And I am happy to say that all the things I wrote about above that I was going to do? I have completed them :)
