This and that and Christmas, too
I, for one, cannot believe it is the middle of November. That Thanksgiving is next week, fully aware that Christmas is coming on strong.
How did this happen? Everyone has the same amount of seconds, minutes, hours, days in the year. I used to be pretty good at juggling and multi tasking. I never paid attention to the time thing. But these days, it just zips by and I am standing here, mouth open, shaking my head saying What???
So I am not even close to being prepared this year. I normally shop and sew all year for the Holidays. Not this year. I haven't even figured out what's being served at Thanksgiving down at the folks. Oh yeah, Big Bird. That's a given. What else? I don't enjoy the cooking like I used to. I think I need to surf for inspiration or even dig out some of my old notebooks of recipes and ideas. That should help spur me on.
But what can be done about the time passing so quickly? Why can't I jar it like I use to the little fireflies?
