Have a Merry Christmas!
Still looking for that perfect gift for that special person. Here’s a couple of ideas for ya’.
Mouse bookmark. For the reader who likes to read in bed, this little guy could cause a stir if he gets lost in the covers.
Egg cozies. Because. Clearly I’ve been missing a very important step in egg preparation.
Wine cozies. Now we’re talking.
Pencil burrito. Not so practical for the student who constantly thinks about food.
Well. Seriously, who doesn’t need a kitty to spit out some toothpaste?
Silly socks. Always a hit.
Loafers. Tee, hee.
Fingerless handerpants. They can only really be complete if accompanied by trouser mittens.
Cup pups. Never have to drink alone.
A rock in a leather pouch. I don’t know why anyone might need this but it sells at Neiman Marcus for $85.
Dual purpose cup. A cup with a snack holder. Well, it’s about time!
TP dispenser. A picture is worth a thousand wipes.
Money tree seeds. Really only works if you have oil soil. But hey, one can dream!
This time of year Scout Elves help Santa manage his nice and naughty lists.
They can be helpful.
They can have fun.
They might make friends.
Or they might not…
Sometimes they need help.
Hmm… not the kind of help he was hoping for.
They do regular things.
They eventually go back to the North Pole.
And report to Santa.
And when the New Year comes around they work on resolutions.
Been feeling a little blue?
December can be an overwhelming month. It marks the end of the year, it is a time many people are wrapping up much more than presents. They are wrapping up business contracts, trying to complete a tax year, and meet business as well as personal deadlines. It’s not uncommon to experience anxiety and doubt.
The coordination of cards, gifts, dinners, parties, decorating, finances, cooking, cleaning, travel arrangements, real and self-imposed priorities, mailing dates, shopping, traditions, hopes, and past memories can wreak havoc on your psyche.
It’s a delicate interpretive dance.
No wonder it brings out the Grinch!
If you’re singin’ the blues… Wail. Out loud. Take a moment and feel. Tap your toe and meet the exhilaration of energy building with your inner voice. Block out the external noise — the screeching and pounding of hype, frenzy, and exhaustion.
There’s a lot to take in this time of year.
Today, I look within and my heart whispers. Simplicity.
Whether an avid list maker or list hater, this is about the time of year that brings out the list maker in most of us.
I just conquered a flurry of colorful post-its spread across my desk and cleaned through notes on my phone. How to know when it’s time to do this:
Ever fall into that to-do loop? Mind clutter. Writing lists relieves that noise until desk clutter takes over.
Lists don’t replace thinking though.
Groceries, gifts, parties, planning, calls, meetings, life’s necessities, and on and on and on…
