Hello blog readers,
Today is a bit cloudy, but the sun is still shining through. That's one thing I find great about this tropical weather, it's not usually cloudy or grey for long periods of time. I heard that at home they've had some rather wild weather - snow, wind, rain, etc. I'm very glad we are here and not there right now.
Our time with my sister visiting has been going great! We've had fun catching up, swimming in the pool, watching Christmas movies, etc. Girl time is always a good thing. And now S and her husband are going to be coming down for Christmas! We are beyond excited about that. I've always wanted to spend Christmas in a tropical place so this is like a dream come true for me. Mom and I are going to have fun planning the menus, we've already been chatting about it over tea this morning.
I need to get working on my Christmas gift list soon, although I'm cutting way back this year, we all are, which is a good thing. It makes Christmas much less stressful. And this year I'd like Christmas to be a happy and stress-free holiday, as it should be, with emphasis on the real Reason for the season and not all the do, do, do that usually takes over. We are thinking simple and laid back. It will be a nice break from what it has been the last few years.
Have any of you started your holiday planning yet? I think I'm a little late this year, but it's better late then never, right?
