So much to do....so little time..
“The thing to do,is to get absolutely everything in the summer and lock it in a cupboard. Then order every scrap of food from a shop the week before Christmas and sit back and enjoy watching everyone else go mad. I've been meaning to do it for years.”

 ― Miss Read, Village School

 Maybe this  tune will help..Christmas is something that happens in your heart...

YES. Christmas IS something that happens in the heart, and not in the wallet. If it's not in the heart, what is it? Just another day, another shopping spree. No, it has to radiate out as love. Dearest, may your Monday be gentle. LOVE TO YOU!

What a great idea! Yes, everything done by summer.. I love to spend December baking, spending time with family and listening to Christmas music. Not running around the the stores..
How right you are dear Dutchess!
Christmas IS something that happens in your heart..
Wishing you a joyful season and peaceful heart.
Love and blessings,
Penny and Bebe

And good morning to you dear Anita!

Haven't done the summer part, but for years have sat back and watched everyone else go mad. Highly recommend it. ;)
