Christmas is definitely a busy time of the year. Decorating, cooking, parties, all within a month’s time. I’ve been known to run myself ragged, doing way too much in a short time. So this year, I decided to take it slow and savor the month. Instead of getting caught up in so much “stuff” that I barely enjoy myself, I vow to stop at least once a day to take a deep breath and relax.
Repeat after me, deep breath and relax.
Tough to do, isn’t it!
I don’t even have my Christmas tree up yet. In fact, as I write this, I just finished taking down the Thanksgiving decorations. But I refuse to stress. It’s still early. Or late, depending on your point of vow. Judging from the amount of pictures on Facebook featuring festive trees, I may be a tad bit tardy.
I even bought myself several Christmas themed romances that I intend to read before year’s end, you know, to keep the Christmas spirit. So...reading is my big Christmas activity this year.

Let’s face it, I may have good intentions, but I know I’ll get caught up in some Christmas thing and love every minute of it. Who am I kidding? This is the best time of year!
Just for grins, here’s my holiday picture. Grumpy cat has nothing on my Belle!
