SoCS~ List

I considered myself to be a fanatic of writing lists. I don’t have the same sharp memory from a few years ago. I need them to function at work and at my home. I’ll be lost if I don’t have my sticky notes everywhere. December is the month I have more lists than ever. I have a Christmas gift list, groceries list, Christmas card send list, and a to-do list. Thanks to that list I don’t miss a gift or a Christmas card. It saves me the time to run an errand at the last minute or feel embarrassed that I missed a gift.

To my surprise, my Christmas gift shopping is all done. You can imagine how I feel. For the first time in years, everyone on my list has been crossed out including my husband. For the most part, I did my shopping online. I didn’t realize how easy and convenient way to shop.  The majority of my shopping was from local businesses. This year I cut down from the big franchise stores and help our locals.

The real challenge here is the wrapping part. For me, that’s the toughest job and I don’t get any help. So as soon, they begin to arrive I will try to get it done. So, what’s next? Next weekend I will be sending Christmas cards and make cookies. I feel more relaxed and enjoying the moment. I did decorate my Christmas tree the day after Halloween. I feel wonderful and not as rushed as other years.

I don’t know yet what I’m doing for Christmas. My two boys will be here but my daughter won’t be traveling because of the Covid-19.

I just hope we can all have a nice and safe Christmas.

Happy Veteran’s Day!

This Monday brings a huge Thank you to all those who served and are still serving our country. So that I can walk out of my door and be free to go where I want, when I want, and to do so much more! Happy Veteran’s day to my husband , my brother, my uncle, and all veterans. Thank you, thank you, and thank you for being brave and for your service. My hugs and love to all of you!

SoCS~ “Nuts”

Halloween is over and I have a neighbor who it’s decorating for Christmas. I’m looking from my window and I noticed that last night we had a little snow on the ground. It looks and feels like the holiday spirit is here.

I told my husband to let’s start decorating for Christmas. He looks at me like are you nuts? Usually, I decorate the house after Thanksgiving, but with the feeling that time flies so fast, I will like to have the house all decorated. It makes me feel wonderful.

Maybe I’m nuts, however if I have it all done a little earlier, I can enjoy how pretty the house gets. I love sitting in the night in my chair and looking at the villages and the tree. Do you think this makes sense? Maybe not. However, the idea of how close we are from the holidays it’s making myself nuts. No doubt I love the holiday season.

One-Liner Wednesday~ Ha! it’s October!


I have a friend who just put her Christmas tree. I love Christmas, however I think it’s too early. Then, by Dec 20th she’s complaining about the holiday season and she can’t wait to take it down on Dec 25th. I don’t know why it’s the reason of skipping Halloween and Thanksgiving they’re also, fun.
