I’m Gearing Up for Christmas Mode

Forgive me while I talk about Christmas for a little while….
I dealt with the turkey leftovers quite promptly on Thursday. One extra turkey breast was chopped and frozen to use in soup later. I made stock. I fed the fam a turkey dinner/lunch again on Friday. I cleared up the fall decorations. And that was it.
I’m moving on.
It’s not that I’m not thankful. In fact, I am very thankful! But, I’m ready to gear up for Christmas mode.
NOT “the mad rush of stuff to do” Christmas mode. But “the twinkling lights, soft music, fun things to do with my kids kind of Christmas” mode. There’s a month until Christmas and I really want to enjoy that month.
Christmas is that yearly reminder for me that time is passing. My baby is now four. It’s been four years since we moved back to California. I am 40!
I want to enjoy the daze.
Here’s my list of things to enjoy this month:
These are things that I truly enjoy doing. While it’s a long list, it’s not burdensome to me. Apologies in advance as you may be peppered with Christmas chatter here and there this month as well as some very fun giveaways.
