|I work for myself and I give myself this button for November|
|This how I imagine I look vacuuming|
|This is more like what really happens|
I will ease into the season, purchasing gifts as I go. Stopping for a break and a cup of tea and a movie or a book before I do any more. I now have twenty four days to do this. It will be a test of slowness not hurriedness. It is so much easier when I am not required to go to work each day. I have another Stella Page book with my trusty copyeditor and another story percolating in the brain. So my whole attention will not be on the season. Just some of the time.
|This will happen again. And I will be thankful for the people who will be sitting here with me.|
Odds and ends of foodstuffs for the season will be purchased as I move through my days. The freezer will get filled. I didn't bake last year due to weight issues, mine and others, but I just might relax for a day and make a few sweet things to share. Or then again the bake shop up the highway does a wonderful job of this. More time for my zen moments.
|Bake shop to the left if you're looking.|
As a future focussed thinker I can project right past Christmas to the New Year with hardly a blink of an eye. It will require a concerted effort on my part to stay in the moment. Even if that moment includes vacuuming a bit.
