It’s starting to feel like Christmas

My *hated* task of the day was grocery shopping and my Journal page for today is below.

Christmas music playing, a fire burning, some baking, with the tree brought in from the deck plus a few decorations and it’s beginning to feel like Christmas around here.

  1. Oh, what a roller coaster of a Christmas … I think I’d be moved to tears every year, too! 🙁 I am glad you are able to find some kind of balance … and your home scenes look beautifully festive!

  2. Love your page. I love scrapping and if I was obsessed with quilts it would be the obbseession for me. Now I do when I can and I love finding inspiration from pages like yours! Im just binding the stars and stripes quilt from you site that has been sitting as a top awaiting patiently its turn. I hope youll drop on by in a few days when i (should) have it finished and photos posted.Happy and hot in a summer christmas \Cherry

  3. What a bittersweet Christmas for you. (((hugs)))I love your little tree in the house. So festive and cute! Perfect!What were you making in the kitchen? I haven’t made anything Christmasy yet. My family is not much into sweets, so I end up eating it all. ARGH! I do want to make some divinity though. It is my favorite! :~)

  4. Mary, I understand your struggle during the holidays … we lost our oldest, Angie, on 12/23/99… It’s difficult to have holiday cheer, but yet, you want to honor and remember those who have gone before … and still enjoy family here on earth. Keep smiling.Julia, NE
