i'm trying not to jinx it here, but i think i'm at my breathing moment before the chaos of holidays :) i love the excited preparedness of holiday crafting, baking, trip planning, all of it... and for me, the anticipation of it all is just part of the excitement.
as i mentioned earlier this week, my hubby has left for sea, so it's a little quiet here at home. and finally the skies have opened up and we're seeing lots of the bc rain our winters are known for. (call me strange, but i love dreary wet, cold weather. hahaha maybe it's the knitter in me).
so i'm taking these short weeks to rest, and prepare myself for the holidays. because who am i kidding. it's gonna be a busy season, and i'm gonna be upping the caffeine, and cutting the sleep.... because i like the anticipation... it's what makes our handmade holiday so fun! and i've got a little extra someone to knit for... i'm gonna be an auntie again in the new year! also, my little man has asked for a stocking, and i'd love to do a handmade advent calendar... though that may be stretching it for me... of course i haven't forgotten about the end of this month either... so there's always something. but for now, i'm gonna make sure i take some time to breathe...
thankfully i had my knit on in preparing for knit city, and i'm now well stocked for holiday markets upcoming. there are still a few items i want to add to the list, but i don't at all feel the panic of preparing for the booth. (so long as i don't leave it to the last minute). haha.
and so here's what i'm doing today:
list making (i probably love the process of list making almost more than what it means.. that i have something to do to cross it off).
cuddling my little man... he's growing up so fast... (this pic is from quite some time ago, but i love it... and like remembering when he was smaller)
listening to the rain....
enjoying my coffee and tea....
how about you? are you feeling the calm before the storm yet? are you also taking a moment to breathe? let's chat, any exciting things on your lists? what's on your needles now? xo
