Thought someone said we are in a global warming???
Cause I am sitting here--
like this tonight!!!!
and I am still chilly!!!!
Baby it's cold out there--
time to crawl under a quilt and work on quilting it---
forget these little Christmasy gifts--
there is not enough fabric on these to keep one warm--
I can only hope that whom ever gets these in the mail --
that it will "warm" their hearts!!!!!
I am worried about some of you--
out there in blog land--
as I have been 'buzzing' around looking at
other's sites and decorating ideas--
I have run across this--
bloggers feeling down and out--
some are feeling like they are holding on by only a thread--
but instead you just feel "blue" and "bluer"---
and then you feel "guilty"--cause it is the "holly jolly" season--
so shouldn't you feel that way too--
what is wrong with "me" you ask????
Well--there is nothing wrong with you--
it is ok to feel alittle sad at this time of year--
after all it is the "end" of another year--as we also are getting ready to celebrate the end of another year--so many of us without realizing it -- are really looking back at the year of 2010 and seeing that it was a tough year--
and a 'mean' year to alot of us--and for what ever reason we begin to focus on this--
especially if we lost some dear loved ones and they are now not here to share or encourage us this holiday.
And my big question is---
Just because it is Christmas season--
Is there a rule that says one must be jumping for 'joy' every minute--
must one always decorate the whole house--
bake cookies from scratch--
make everyone a homemade gift--
fight the crowds for the right gift at the right price--
entertain--go to every holiday function--on and on the list goes--
We do have some freedoms in this life--
maybe you need only pick one thing to do this year--
just decorate the tree--and make it into a party with family and friends--
or it could be just having a day of holiday baking---
or have a girl friends shopping day and then go to one of your homes and wrap the gifts and have some snacks and laughs!!!
Ah--Di -- may be it's time to get off this soap box--
not sure where all this came from--????
so even if you are having one of these weeks---
Just remember this is really what it is all about--
and this scene and thought has to bring this--
smile to the heart--
and remember this--
here is blog land is alot of others either to smile with you, cry with you, listen to you, or /and laugh with you
--and if all else fails--go shopping for fabric--
that has to be a 'picker-upper'!!!!!
Hugs, Di and miss gracie
