10…9….8…You Get The Idea…

Wow, 10 more days until Christmas!  Are you ready?  It’s kind of amazing how fast it sneaks up on you, isn’t it?  I still haven’t baked any Christmas cookies. I’ve EATEN plenty, but that probably doesn’t count.  And I’m still looking forward to sipping a cup of hot cocoa beside a roaring fire while Christmas carols play.  Guess I’d better get right on it.

We did get our tree up, though.  It didn’t take long since it’s only about a foot and a half high and I basically just lift the thing out of a big plastic bag already fully decorated:

It’s a snap to put away, too.  Now that’s my kind of tree!

What’s freaking me out a wee little bit is the fact that January 1st is only a couple of weeks away, and certain things that I told myself that I’d have done by the end of year aren’t quite there yet.  What about you?  Do you still have a few things on your 2013 to-do list, too?  Ah, well, it’s not really the holidays unless you’re hyperventilating, right?

So here’s to a busy couple of weeks–don’t forget to stop and take a breather now and then!  🙂
