Organizing Christmas

"Can 'Christmas' be organized?" You might ask.

Well, this year I did it better than I ever have before....
I   bought me a composition book from the dollar store...
covered it...
And started sectioning it out:
 Most days I would go in and journal at the end of the day
recording events, weather, thoughts etc...

I saved a few pages at the front of the book and went 
back in and made me a Table of Contents
to record what was where:
Each night I would sit down and decorate a few more pages
getting them ready ahead of time to inspire me...
It has not only helped to keep me on track,
the little book has enhanced the Christmas Season for me.
I found myself looking forward to the time of day that I could just go sit down for a spell, decorate, ponder and write away!

Hope you all have a very Merry, Merry Christmas!!

Planning Organization for Christmas

Hi Everybody!

December is slowly ticking away....

Here's what I have been working on to get myself organized for this busy holiday season....
Present List...Still to Purchase...
Gift Card List
Envelope for Christmas Receipts....Beginning of Dividers
My Christmas Chronicles Notebook
Pile of Goodies I am working with....
I am frantically trying to get things done for an early Christmas with the whole family.
just maybe....
all of my kids and grand kids will make it for a much needed family pic!!
 I'm sure you women out there know what I mean when I say...."This is a hard thing to accomplish!!!"  

Keep Sane my Friends!!

I need to be back in Nashville by next Wednesday,
because I am supposed to fly out of there to go be with all of the grand kids for an early Idaho

I'm having a ball here though.
Hard to leave this ole man of mine anyway.
We have shopped, hung out at coffee cafes,
visited thrift shops, used bookstores,
got lots of snuggle time in with the ole teddy bear.
