I discovered that if I set the bread sponge the night before, I can knead dough at 7:30, and by 9 o'clock I have a bowl full of potential.
Sunday was the first advent. In our house this is the official start of Christmas. We celebrate all season (first advent until 12th night). Our tree went up, the lighting problem was solved by my genius husband, and the Pixie and I are planning to decorate before the Punk gets home from school today.
After the offspring was safe in their beds, 9 o'clock was time to finish some Christmas aprons and wrap them up. I'm determined to stay on top of the wrapping this year....no Christmas Eve all-nighter for me, thankyouverymuch.
Look! It's just plain muslin.....but if you put some shapes on.....draw some lines to follow.....
I have one goal this season. Between today and 12th night, I will try to cut back on computer time. The goal is to have more time to notice my babies (because Christmas is a bit overwhelming and stressful for little guys). The vehicle for more time is a bann on the internet between the hours of 9am and 9pm.
Here's hoping! I'm posting this at 9:05. Perhaps I should say, no internet after the morning splurge and none before 9pm?
Wish me luck!
