It’s December and in just a few weeks, I will have family in that I haven’t seen in a year…some that I haven’t seen in over 2 1/2 years! I am so excited! In fact, the excitement is so great that it’s hard for me to focus on anything but the holidays. It’s not just me, either, that seems to be going through a hard time with keeping up with their blog and everything else. It’s just a very hectic time. But I only have 41 days left until the date I originally started this post-a-day madness and then I will be able to say I did it. I haven’t decided whether I will continue a post-a-day through 2012 or not…I am very conflicted about it actually. A part of me worries that after doing it for a whole year, I may end up back to hardly ever blogging, but at the same time, I feel like I might need to cut back from doing it every day so I can shift the focus to other things in my life. I would love to hear opinions on whether my readers would like to see me continue daily or they think I should cut back to 2-3 times a week or even weekly.
Apparently today was also National Pie Day….but since I’m not a big pie lover anyways, the only reason I knew this was by looking it up.
Here’s a little poem to get you into the holiday spirit! 🙂
Loaded with pretty toys for you.
Behold the blocks, the Noah’s arks,
The popguns painted red and blue.
No solemn pine-cone forest-fruit,
But silver horns and candy sacks
And many little tinsel hearts
And cherubs pink, and jumping-jacks.
For every child a gift, I hope.
The doll upon the topmost bough
Is mine. But all the rest are yours.
And I will light the candles now.
