Christmastime is here: 2015
Ready or not.
You know how Christmas has a particular feeling? As in people say, it doesn't "feel" like Christmas, implying that there is one specific way one is suppose to feel this time of year. And if you can't invoke that feeling, then it doesn't feel "right." For example, we have all these Christmas songs that yell about how it supposed to be cold and snowy right now. Well, this week in Kansas it was sunny and in the mid 60s. It was awesome and I definitely wasn't wishing for snow.
Nevertheless, as I say constantly, I am trying to be less of a grinch about Christmas. This year, I actually got a small Christmas tree and decorated with things I got at the Newton Et Cetera Shop (the local MCC Thrift Shop). It's actually quite lovely and does a great job of warming up my space. (Oh of my favorite things about it too is how Scout will start and stare up at the bookshelf (where the tree is sitting) and meow at the ornaments).
Not only that, but Christmas prep has been in full swing for awhile, which, honestly can stress me out about money. However, there are so good things too. For example, 2 Fridays ago, my co-worker/friend, Denise, and I decorated the office for Christmas while listening to Justin Bieber's Christmas album (ha). We also got Christmas themed drinks from Mojo's.brown sugar pecan cookies which are beyond. They are so good! Please make them.

But for now, I will go back to snuggling with my cat and watching White Christmas on Netflix.
