From what I have been seeing on many blogs lately it seems that we are full on into the holiday season. Some people have had their house fully and beautifully decorated since the day after Thanksgiving. Others are suffering some angst about not feeling enough of the spirit of Christmas or feeling stressed about the decorating, shopping, baking or Christmas card sending that they need to do.
I think I have plenty of Christmas spirit, I just haven't done much with it yet. I have done a little shopping, I have bought some Christmas cards but none are mailed. I have carried boxes of Christmas decorations up from the basement, but they are still sitting in boxes in the living room. Doc just informed me that he is going to wait a few days before he puts up the outside decorations. That's okay with me. It seems that age and time have given me something of a lassiez-faire attitude about all the "must do" things that come with the season.
I will have the house decorated by the time my grandkids come to decorate my tree next week-end. I will have plenty of food and drink for the 20 or 30 people who will be here on Christmas Eve. I will have gifts for everyone on my list. Whatever I don't get done, we will do without. It won't all be perfect, but it will be fun and it will be filled with the spirit of the season.
