Well, hello there. And happy December!
How are your festivities coming along?
It’s been a frenzy of activity over here. At least it would be a frenzy, if I could work up enough energy to get it done. Still, considering I managed to pick up that wretched bug that’s been going around, I’m fairly proud of myself. The tree is up! Granted, it’s half the ornaments it usually boasts — and if you look closely, you’ll see a clump of ornaments here; and spot bereft of ornaments there. And since we didn’t get the house painted (only partially prepped), the walls are bare, a few light fixtures are MIA. But by George, we’ve got candles and the twinkling of lights.
For all intents and purposes, I’m ready.
Good thing, since the calendar seems to be filling in quite nicely. Today, for instance, marks our office Christmas party — a paint and sip. While I’m all for jumping ship early, and sitting around, sipping — I’m none too keen on the idea of painting a seascape. But no one likes a Grinch (and God don’t like ugly), so I’ll don my party pants, paint with enthusiasm, and keep Bob Ross on repeat: No mistakes, just happy accidents.
Seems a good mantra for the holidays as well, no? After all, I dare say the best way to truly celebrate the season, and all that it stands for, is to do so with a little imperfection.
With that, merriest of weekend wishes to you, my friends.
