I'm back from California where I reveleld in snow just a couple days ago. Even hiked through it on a trial through the redwoods at Nelder Grove. Very cool.
And I am now officially ready for the holidays to arrive.
Case in Point:
Last night I bought gingerbread-scented hand soap at Bath & Body Works.
This morning I made hot chocolate and tuned my digital radio to the Christmas music channel.
All the Christmassy commercials are making me smile.
I'm collecting recipes to try this Thanksgiving.
I'm having to resist the urge to skip decorating for Thanksgiving in favor of going straight to Christmas decor. I will probably have my tree up by Thanksgiving.
I'm also jonsing to paint my toenails holiday red rather than the iridescent brown that says fall.
Already read the Christmas story in the gospels - in prep for an upcoming message.
Finally, I'm ready to Christmas shop. What? you say. Well, I have to get an early start - both my children have December birthdays, and I'm sticking to a strict budget. So you see my need to get on this present thing.
Armed with my binder from Untangling Christmas from my girlfriends Karen and LeAnn, I'm ready to take on the holidays. How about you?
