Raise your paw if you feel like the Grinch’s dog yet? Poor little guy, all weighed down with a load he was never meant to carry. I’ll admit to feeling this way more than once lately, even as I’ve purposed to notice and celebrate the small moments in the midst of my everyday.
From the looks of the marvelous, heartfelt, honest comments you have all left this week, I am not the only one who has been thinking about the struggle between celebrating what is while anticipating what’s to come during this first week of December. I hope you have been treasuring up the small everyday moments in your heart to share with all of us next week!
There will be a Mister Linky set up on Monday for you to link up to a post you have done or a new post you are working on to share with us how you are unwrapping the gift of the everyday during this season of Advent. Feel free to grab this button to include on your post. I look forward to celebrating smallness with you, even as we prepare for bigger things to come.
what is the first word that pops in your head?
Here is my table set for the occasion.
Props to the Nester for capturing this on the first shot.
and her husband Marvin, of course!
They joined us for coffee and dessert.
And no, she didn’t have pie.
These are the dishes we always use for nice dinners at her house.
They are so familiar, I almost don’t notice them.
neither of which I got photos of, really.
I hope your time off and away was as nice as mine.
I found Kimba doing this lovely tablecloth project over at A Soft Place to Land. It involves a painters drop-cloth and taping paper to a siding glass door. I won’t be doing this for Thanksgiving, as it’s tomorrow and I still have lots of things to finish before then (not the least of which being world peace). But it could still be done for Christmas or birthdays or any number of occasions.
With this post Shutter Sisters reminds us that sometimes the best holiday photo cards come just after the passing of gas.
So Happy Thanksgiving. Now go and be inspired.
