Countdown to Christmas!

A littl' decorating in the home. 2009

The time blogging between now & Christmas will be dedicated to my insanity!
I haven't even started shopping, guess I won't till I get to Maryland.
I just don't want to haul it on the plane.
PLUS I don't have any ideas of what to get anyone.

I am in such a practical state of mind. I don't want to buy anything that isn't disposable.
Disposable you say, yes we ALL have too much! so disposable means- something that collects dust NO, something to wear NO, Toys(they already have too many) NO.
That leaves food, yep that's disposable, everyone eats and with this economy everyone can benefit!
O just thought of something else disposable-MONEY! My mother in law always said, green is the right color, size, etc

I will have to get a couple of things for friends here in Fla, but that will prob be food related?

So follow me in this adventure before Christmas, and in the spirit of it all I will be having a giveaway. A book entitled 'Plum Lovin' by Janet Evanovich, you got to love her writing.

Just put your name in the hat, by telling me you'd like it. I will have dau #2 pick it out of the hat on Dec 24th. And hopefully get it to you in January 2010!

There is an hour of calm relief
From every throbbing care;
'Tis when before a throne of grace,
I kneel in secret prayer,
When one by one, like threads of gold,
The hues of twilight fall,
Oh, sweet communion with my God,
My Saviour and my all!
Fanny J. Crosby

I haven't done any decorating, a little shopping but that's about it. Need to get going too :) I'll go in that hat if you don't mind? Sounds like fun. Enjoyed catching up on your posts. Have a great weekend.

I'm done with my Christmas shopping. Gifts for the little ones and that green stuff for the adults. It works for us.

I love Janet Evanovich. I've read every single one of the Plum series well through 15 anyway. I guess this is a new book?

Have a terrific day. :)

I am cutting way back this year in terms of Christmas and the big thing is I will not get stressed period. Easier said than done but I'm doing so little that I think I can pull that off.

Call me a pragmatist, but I like it when someone just gives me cash. So, I think you have a good idea there.

You left a comment about my posts being confusing. The top post is always for my Nature Notes meme and it stays there from Thurs-Tues. Every daily post is below that 'sitcky' post from newest to oldest like you have on your blog. So just look past the weekly nature notes post ...I hope this helps... Michelle

Good luck with all the shopping and chaos that will be coming! :O)

I call those gifts "consumables" - food & drink. And money (or gift certificates if you know where they like to shop) are always good, too.
