WINTER! Such a busy time. “…a beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight, walking in a winter wonderland…” Are you kidding? Who has time for a walk when she is in a constant sprint!
All right, I am being unfair. I am leaving the work to “the kids.” I’m doing a lot of my favorite things – at least, I’m planning to.
My favorite winter activity is to sleep and dream about spring. I’ll take daffodils over snow! And all this shopping with holidays all over the place! I don’t know why other folks being busy ruins my schedule. But it does. My goodness, did you all notice I couldn’t even do blogging for most of the month! At this point I’m behind on blogging, Facebook, Bible study, housework, visitations, and treadmill. Don’t have my SS lesson prepared, my cards are not mailed, I’ve missed church, my social calendar is blown, I’m sleepy, and I’ve gained 15 pounds. As I said before bring me some daffodils.
As I said though, I’m leaving the actual doing to “the kids.” With that in mind I’m sending them this advice.
1. Buy some stuff, but don’t break the bank.
2. Join the hustle but don’t stay too long.
3. Come home but drive slowly and safely.
And to the Christmas shoppers and travelers, I sing you a song to the tune of On Top of Old Smokey.
“Out on Northwest Expressway all covered with snow, you got that speeding ticket cause you wouldn’t go slow. Now that speeding ticket will cost five days pay. Like working at Hardy’s for free every day. Now Haggai tells you, you’ll have holes in your pocket, guess that’s what happens when you drive like a rocket.” (Haggai 1:6)
😀 Sending you smiles and a Merry Christmas!
