Last week we had temperatures near 70 degrees but this weekend they drop down to the low forties with a frosty chill in the air. Every other pin on pinterest seems to be holiday related and Christmas commercials abound. On our walks this weekend all I could notice was that the landscape seemed to turn red and green: the dark green ivy covering my abode, piles of pine needles and the bright red berry bushes. One afternoon I even heard the sound of Christmas music coming from my iphone while M+L were playing with it - I have no idea how they got it on there, but apparently there is no stopping the holiday cheer, and I think I am ready for the festivities. Honestly I usually don't start thinking about Christmas until after Thanksgiving but I can't seem to help myself this year. We even got started on some holiday crafts this weekend and I baked a pie. In my defense, however, December of last year, approximately 12 hours of everyday was completely devoted to making pillows. It's by far the busiest season for my etsy shop and after I finally stopped taking orders I had to cram a months worth of holiday outings, festivities, light seeing, performance going, present making/shopping/wrapping and cookie baking in about three days. So I hope you will forgive me if I get a jump start this year but I feel some holiday posts coming on.
Hope you all had a great weekend! xo
