Peace Out : Holiday Prep
The world revolved from night to day,
A voice, a chime,
A chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good-will to men! - Longfellow
There's chili in the crock and it smells soooo good that I need to leave the house because it's torture. Tonight my friend Maezen arrives with several other lovely souls to sup 'round my table. Tomorrow, I leave for her zen retreat! This will be the longest I've ever sat down and shut up... probably in my entire life. Wish me luck, won't you? I'm going to need it.
I've taken a few measures to help stave off my monkey mind...things scratched off my to-do list so I hopefully won't think about them while I should be thinking about nothing.
Our holiday cards were mailed last week...
and the calendars are on their way to the grands...
Satch is passing out his gratitude cards each day...
and the teacher gifts are ready to go.
The gifts that I ordered for my boy last month are already arriving so I've been wrapping and hiding them each day, while awaiting for Santa to arrive with his gifts.
The only thing left to do is to get the tree and decorate for the holiday. Something to look forward to upon my return.
That...and the annual Solstice party...
And waiting for Santa to arrive!
Peace out, people.
