Almost There: Pause in Advent


 We have a sprinkling of snow and a busy household!  Three sweetie pies slept over.  Granny slept on the couch.  Ouch.
 We're "pausing" from our routine and thinking Christmas thoughts with good children.  



 We decorate cookies that are so covered in "pretty toppings" that the cookies don't look edible (and really aren't) afterwards.  Ha!
 About now I feel like perching myself on the bed and reading my book all day.  All day.
 Sweet women everywhere are thinking about meals and shiny floors.  Sugar plums, too.



 Elves are finishing up all the delights, right?


All I have to say today in my small "pause" is, "Whew.  I'm ready."  This weary world needs the Savior.  Every moment.  Every day.  Forever.

What fun you have had, I hope you get a good nap today. Your house looks ready. I love your curtains. They look wonderful.
I think I will have a quiet day today.
It is hard as we have sunshine, and I just have to go outside.
Have a lovely, and wonderful, and restful day.

Oh how I remember those lovely cookies! I love how baking cookies with little ones continue. When you wrote this, " Sweet women everywhere are thinking about meals and shiny floors. Sugar plums, too.", I had to smile. So true! And me too! Kit

Most of my day today is being spent with a good book, gas fireplace and a nap. Thanks for the idea, Karen!

Darling pictures. You must have the patience of a saint to make all those sticky fingered cookies. Yikes! But you will look back and remember it all with great pleasure, so what is a bit of a messy kitchen and sore back?

Merry Christmas, PomPom!

Oh Pom, I may be thinking about food but shiny floors are well off the agenda! I love that you are thinking Christmas thoughts with good children. Here I'm thinking Christmas thoughts with mischievous children! I am ready too. Bring on the rescue. I'm all ready for that xx
