Enjoy The Real Reason We Start This Season

Another sunrise and a windy day in the forecast for us here in NW Ohio...
Today will be spent cleaning some and mopping kitchen where traffic was heavy filled plates and eating the large array of food.... I plan on being kind to myself and work at a slow pace... laundry in started.. beds are made ... leftovers for lunches... plans for attending the Tinora Girls first basketball game of the season this evening .... Next week the boys season will start so we will attending many games for the next couple months...
Food was very plentiful yesterday... The cooking and baking went very smooth but by evening and clean ups all day ... I was all in... just like most of you I am sure....
Many Christmas trees will go in place today and this weekend to start the holiday... well that is if you aren't one of those " out of your mind" black Friday shoppers... I checked Facebook this morning and many had comments about being out there and just plain giving up and coming home... The best choice is to stay home... enjoy what you have already and you all know I love when people use what they have and just be creative... Addictions for what you love can be so very easily tucked in with touches of Christmas and made all your own... going beyond evergreen boughs and red bows... Cherished antiques and vintage makes a house feel warm and well loved... Glitz and glam are lovely but I prefer just little touches of that and touches of cozy.. It is just the right stuff to capture the spirit of the season.. With my background in design for myself this shows off your personality....
Hope if you are making your home lovely and welcoming for others you take lots of pics and share... whatever you may be doing... enjoy... the process and the right reason for the season in your hearts.....

Have a Great Weekend!!

Since we also celebrate St. Nicholas coming December 5th we usually start decorating our houses immediately afterwards. I'm already looking forward to it, made some nice things to decorate our home with. To us it is definitely one of the nicest seasons of the year. Have a lovely Sunday Marietta, Ira
