I've been feeling like the calendar is running past me, leaving me in a cloud of dust. I've been trying to slow things down. I am not good at slowing down time. In order to give the illusion of time slowing down, I've been trying to incorporate into those things that will feel like keeping up, an activity which soothes me. See if you can identify the soothers in this list...
Those things which are getting done:
:: The Mini-Stocking Advent Garland is up and filled with goodies, and I will post pictures soon.
:: Some gift knitting and crafting has begun.
:: Meals have been cooked regularly.
:: The doll-house has received a modest amount of holiday decoration. I made a bitty tree from FaLaLaLa Felt, which I whole-heartedly recommend! Hana and I made some tiny polymer clay gifts to put in some origami boxes. Hana says her doll family might have Christmas every day until Christmas because "they don't understand about waiting, Mom." Of course.
However, some things are not getting done (note the lack of soothers):
:: Tidying; I can no longer really see the surface of the coffee table.
:: Some gift knitting and crafting has not begun (see, there goes that time again!).
:: The people-house has not received even a modest amount of holiday decoration. Unless, of course, you consider that the doll-house is actually part of the people-house....
It really is no wonder that I feel the world speeding by me; I'm sitting here by the highway fiddling happily with my hands busy with needles, wool, and food! Did you think I was complaining? ;-)

All kidding aside, please excuse my absense here lately, i've been enjoying the view here from the side of the road...
