A "Not So Rushed" Saturday in December...
Oh, my golly gosh!!!
December is well under way and Christmas is racing towards us!
I still need to get good photos in the dining area/kitchen and finish the tour of our home decked out for the holidays. But, that just doesn't seem to be happening today.
What can I say?!?!?
Eddie had a rare Saturday off in December, so we decided to take full advantage and spend it together. After he prepared fried bacon, scrambled eggs and toasted breakfast sandwiches, we got ready to hit the streets.
We were only out for a couple of hours. But, we had a lot of fun while making a few stops. Eddie had to pick something up at Lowes, so he dropped me at the garden center before parking. I just walked around and watched families selecting their trees and breathed in the heavenly scent of fresh cut firs.
It made me want a real tree really badly!!!
But, I settled for these instead. And they really do smell like a real Christmas tree! When we got home, I immediately hung three on the tree in the living room and I'm in heaven.....
After a stop at Target, we dined at Arby's and hit HEB for some dog food on the way home. By the way, I discovered the most awesome holiday cookies.....
And, what's even better is that Eddie doesn't like peppermint, so that means I get to eat them all!!
Now, the dogs and I are chillin' while Eddie watches the Navy v. Army football game. My tummy is full of those yummy cookies and I am headed for my comfy corner chair in the bedroom to read (and maybe doze) for a bit.
Doesn't that sound sinfully lazy right here in the middle of the "Christmas rush"???
This season is not all about the rush and the shopping.
It's about having a little fun....time spent with loved ones....
and finding a bit of peace and quiet now and then.
