Smooth my nerves!

I don't know why but I found myself getting all worked up about the holidays. I was rushing around, creating a dust storm but not accomplishing anything....sooo....I've put my favorite Sarah McLaughlin tunes on...a bit loud, so I can hear anywhere in the house...and between sipping some tea, I've managed to finish the Christmas decorations, wrapped the latest couple of gifts I got and have cleaned out the refrigerator. I think I was on Christmas overload from the radio blasting the same tunes over & over , the craziness in the malls, and the never ending phone calls.

I'm calmer, the house is peaceful once again and I have a smile on my face. the only thing better would be sitting in my chair stitching a bit, but that can wait until tomorrow. Today is for me to recenter my thoughts and energy.

Joy is not in things, it is in us.

Good for you Berta! I think we've all forgotten how to sit back and enjoy the holidays :o)

I hope you are nice and relaxed now and was able to get in a little stitching time today. I am going to need some relaxation after this upcoming weekend!
