Fall is ending and Christmas is coming

Well, I am finding myself a little forlorn today. The fall is my favorite time of year and I was driving around doing errands (and voting, thank you very much) I noticed that while we still have some great fall leaf color, the season is ending. My life seems to be zooming by. How did another year go by? I have made every effort to really soak up this fall and still, it feels too short.

That said, I can pat myself on the back because we got our Christmas card picture taken Sunday morning. Everyone was up at their usual time, so I took advantage of the extra hour and got everyone ready and took it. I won't post the actual photo but one of the rejected ones.

I also have purchased several Christmas gifts today. I can't enjoy the season unless most of the gifts are purchased by Thanksgiving. I have a good head start, so that feels good.

Oh, and one big stack of paper has been sorted and processed. What a great feeling!

Excellent rejected Christmas photo! The chosen one ought to be great. Well done with the Christmas shopping. I've got to get started!

You are so on top of things. I've been playing Christmas music. Does that count?

I started shopping too. I love this time of year, but it is a bit sad the fall has gone by so fast. Cute picture.

Way to go! I am the same way, I can relax and enjoy the season more if my shopping is done early. Especially the big things the kids want, then I don't have to worry about not being able to find it!

Janice - I'm getting ready to mail my Pay It Forward craft. Can you e-mail me your address. You probably already have but I can't find it. Thanks!
