It Has Been Brought To My Attention December 19, 2012Posted by Toy Lady in Holidays Countdown.
It’s been brought to my attention that I have not provided a Christmas cactus update in a while.
It is indeed nearly Christmas, and the cactus is, well, see for yourself! It’s a happy camper, if a cactus can, in fact, be happy (or camp) in December.
We’re chugging along here – the contractor stopped to pick up his final check, we’ve got bare-naked walls all over the place, and I’m not even going to care about that until after the new year.
For now – it’s time for Christmas to begin!
I’ve got a tree to decorate (and buy!), socks to knit, gifts to wrap, and Christmas dinner to plan and prep – we’re cooking again for the family.
Holy cow, do I have socks to finish!
I’m also trying to remain mindful of the joy in the season, even amid the crazy busy-ness of the season and the terrible sadness that’s been visited upon so many families this past week.
I’m not sure when I’ll be posting again – possibly Monday, but that’s Christmas Eve and I may be up to my eyeballs in peeling potatoes and baking red velvet cake.
Do remember to spend some time rejoicing this week -Merry Christmas!
