December is tomorrow!

December is tomorrow! And there's so much left to do!

I can hardly believe that in 25 days, it will be that time of the year again. I love Christmas, and everything about it--the traditions, the sweets, the foods, the sharing and caring (that *should* go on throughout the year), the stories, the gifts of the magi (thank you, O. Henry!), and everything else that you can think of. Music, concerts. Little tots with their eyes all aglow.

Oh, but there's so much to do! Twenty-five days doesn't give me nearly enough time. I have to bake my cookies, decorate my home, prepare presents, write two (yes--two) separate Christmas letters, send off everything else, *and* stay on top of my normal duties.

Can I do it? That's the big question of the day. I just have to remember to breathe deeply! It won't be difficult, if the scent of gingerbread and popcorn and other goodies is still in the air...

Two separate Christmas letters?

Yes. One for me, one for my parents. What joy is mine.

Seriously, it doesn't bother me, usually, but this year just seems busy.

I'm sure they are the best Christmas Letters in the world!

You are a sweetheart!

I love the smells of Christmas!

I'm hoping to finish my shopping today and I've got half my pile of cards left. I'll have my novel edited by Sunday (I hope!) and can then focus on the holidays.
