The Christmas Season officially begins for me when I see this commercial. I saw it today during a football game. Sorry, I don’t remember which one. I’ve watched so many this weekend they’re all kind of blurring together. But it’s official now . . . it’s time for Christmas.
It’s been a wonderful weekend. For time first time in ages, Hubby and I have sat on the couch and watched movies together. Lots of movies. Lots of football games. Slept in. Went to the Day Old Bakery. Cleaned the house together. I took the dogs for a walk and we checked out all the neighborhood holiday decorations. Hubby mentioned that maybe next year we might put up some holiday decorations of our own. I didn’t get around to my cross stitch, but I did get out the knitting. I read the entire Sunday paper – with ads! I’ve sat on the floor and snuggled with the doggies in my lap – something I haven’t done in a really long time. I’m making a list of the holiday cookies that I want to make.
It was a pretty boring weekend. But considering the crazy pace of our lives the last year or so, it was a welcome change. I feel almost guilty enjoying it.
