The holiday.

Ah, Christmas eve.   Finally, all the crazed people have to stop, because the stores will close.
And there's no snow for Christmas, unless you count that little bit on the ski slope in the distance.
Although, they do say that it might snow overnight, about an inch.

 Roy and I are happy, cause we got our walk by the river in.  You can imagine that I am somewhat nervous about slippery/icy/snowy walking.  So this  weather is a bonus to me.

I flitted around today, doing a little of this, and a little of that.
Took some photos of new rugs.
Jinksie approves of this one.  She is a rug softness expert.

 Brunch with the family tomorrow......quiet Christmas eve at home tonight.
Homemade mac and cheese and  a big green salad for dinner, a glass of wine, a good book, and my knitting.  Everyone I love is safe and well.

Who could ask for anything more?

This is the week of retrospect, that's what I call it.  It is the week before the new year, when Christmas is done, and I take a look back at the previous year.  What worked, what didn't. What was my choice, what was not.
I think I am over "resolutions", but I think looking back, and then ahead, is just a time for awareness.
Being mindful.  Being still.
That's my plan.
And after the holidays, it looks like followers might hit 400, and when that happens, we will be forced to do yet another giveaway.

But for tonight, peace on earth in my little corner of the world.
Merry Christmas, everyone.

Ooooo...that last photo spoke to me. Well Hilary, it sounds just about perfect at your place tonight. I am done in but it's not over for me yet. I work tomorrow morning and then back home to clean up, throw on veggies and wait for the family to arrive at noon. They are all here for Christmas and I can't wait. I wish you a wonderful Christmas with your family and of course, Roy Boy. Hope Santa is good to you. Cheers Hilary, Hugs, Deb.

Hi Hilary,
I totally agree with you about the crazy people stopping their shopping because finally the stores closed.... phew.....
I know the sales will start but that will die down too, at least sales fever starts off intense and is not building up to a peak like the shopping fever before Christmas tends to do.
All over now and I hope you have had a peaceful and restful holiday.
All the best for 2013!
