Well the Christmas rush is on!

I was out in the stores today with my daughter - her birthday is the 12th and it has always sent in me into panic mode to get everything done for some reason.   I do my best during this time of the year not to watch TV commercial and not to listen to the radio again the commercials...they get me going into panic mode and that I have to get things done now.    I have learn to stop myself and take a breath so I can enjoy myself with my family and friends, but it's insane that I still have to stop myself.  Oh well at least I have learn to stop myself.  I would like to eventually not even start down the panic road...one day...right :-)  

Well I have finished up the big changes I was working on and now I can settle into the season. ( Sorry no details..it's a secret... as someone might read them that shouldn't know ;-)     I am behind on my Christmas decorations;  so my friend has offered to come over and spend the day with me to do just that.  We can break out the wine and put on the Christmas music and have fun!   I hope everyone else is enjoying the season and doing all the seasonal fun stuff like I am.   I am going to try the pumpkin protein shake this week....did you know that pumpkin is one of the super nutritional foods!   I love pumpkin so I'm really looking forward to that one.

Wishing you all lots of seasonal fun stuff! 

Seasonal ideas...

....Grab some of your favorite holiday tea in a To Go mug and look at Christmas Lights in the neighbourhood....We drive around with holiday music on...some people even have their lights set to music that you can listen in on a station they have setup on the car radio.


  1. Thanks for reminding me about pumpkin's nutritional value (I knew that but should have posted it with my pumpkin foods). I added it now :) "The nutrients in pumpkin are really world class. Extremely high in fiber and low in calories, pumpkin packs an abundance of disease-fighting nutrients, including potassium, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and vitamins C and E. The key nutrient that boosts pumpkin to the top of the SuperFoods list is the synergistic combination of carotenoids. Pumpkin contains one of the richest supplies of bioavailable carotenoids known to man. Indeed, a half-cup serving of pumpkin gives you more than two times my recommended daily dietary intake of alpha-carotene and 100 percent of my recommended daily dietary goal of beta-carotene. When you realize (he tremendous benefits of these nutrients, you’ll see why pumpkin is such an extraordinary nutrition superstar."

    I call Christmas "the machine". You get caught up in it and it's crazy. Every year I try to minimize my stress and just enjoy the season more - still working on that one :)

    We have a few streets around us that compete for best lights and it's just beautiful! My kids always beg to drive down them any time we're out and it's getting dark. I love it.

    Your post was very upbeat today and put me in a great mood - hope you're having a gret day too.

  2. Sounds like you have some fun planned - enjoy the season!

  3. I know you will have a great time with your friend decorating. It's always better with someone to help. :-)

  4. Since my kids are older and gone away, it isn't as fun to decorate! Hubby and I got some of my favorite things out last night and we will put the tree up on Sunday. At these times I miss younger kids...but not enough to go back in time!!!
    Enjoy your time and keep on blogging!

  5. Breaking out the wine, and having fun with a friend sure sounds like one heck of a way to get the decorations up!! Have a great time!
