So Many Books. So Little Time. Let's Review!

Roll On, Christmas!


The biggest Santa in my collection.
(The smallest is less than an inch high.)

My favorite holiday, ever! Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat! (Don’t ask me what that means in the grand scheme of things. Having never served goose for Christmas dinner…or any other dinner, for that matter…it’s irrelevant in my household. But still…that’s how the poem goes…with a few bits more, of course.)

Anyway, Christmas is coming, and I’m a happy camper. Even when it’s just Mark and I, I love Christmas with all its trimmings. And being the overly compulsive little elf I am, I have to have evidence of the holiday in every room in my house. That was all well and good when I was younger and more energetic. Now, it tends to leave me exhausted, and with an aching back from lifting, toting, climbing on chairs, and otherwise risking life and limb to get every garland hung, and every tree trimmed. (I have 2 full-sized ones and 3 more small ones that must go up!)

Whatever your holiday traditions are, I hope you are getting in the mood for good times with families and friends. I’ve got carols playing and mulled cider heating (thanks to my good friend, Nicki), and I’m totally excited about it all! If you haven’t started getting in the mood yet, I hope you soon do. It’s good for what ails ye!

(P. S. I’ve let Santa know just how good I’ve been this year. I’m expecting BIG things! Okay, maybe just big books, but that’s what makes my heart happy, anyway. 🙂 )

  1. That looks festive. Enjoy the holiday season!


    • Thanks, Caitlin! You should see all the other rooms. Hahaha. I have never been one to ascribe to the “Less Is More” theory. Nope. For me, less is just…less. MORE is more! And I don’t understand the concept of “too much of a good thing,” either. *grin* If it’s good, how can there be too much of it?

      Hope your holiday season is going to be a great one, too. This past year has brought many new friends into my life, and I count you as one. Looking forward to working with you in 2014.
