Last week Brown Eyed Belle and I were both saying how much we wanted to get on with Christmas but felt it was just a touch too early (not here in Canada really, but my American friends need to get through Thanksgiving first before they get in the Christmas mood) so we decided to wait until today and do a grand unveiling of our blogs together!
If you dont know Brown Eyed Belle you really must visit her blog and say hello! She always posts the most beautiful photos and loves all things pretty! She is just the most adorable girl and spreads cheer all year long!
I have a very busy few weeks ahead of me starting this past weekend (I know, it's behind me now but ya know, I've been busy) with the lunch I provided for my Rotary club. I made a big pot of soup and arranged lots of subs, chips, cakes, cookies, fruit and hot chocolate for all of the members who went to the Habitat For Humanity build site for the day. It was a lot of running around making sure everything was where it was supposed to be at the right times but it was fun and everyone had a great lunch to warm them up!
If you are looking for something to do in a charitable way, please consider contacting your local Habitat For Humanity to arrange lunch for the workers. They rely on the good hearts of neighbours, local businesses and anyone who would like to help out so anything we can do to help feed the people who volunteer their time to help is most appreciated!
Today I am determined to finish staining the bookshelf I have been working on for a few weeks now - I keep thinking I've done enough then decide it needs just one more coat.
Then I need to make a hot chocolate and get on with Christmas decorating. I am looking out the window right now and it's raining which isn't exactly putting me in the mood - but a candy cane stir stick, my MadMen style Christmas CDs and some tinsel should get me into my seasonal Elfin state of mind!
On Friday our town is doing their annual Candlelight Walk down the main street and to the town park where we will sing carols and light up the park! This is always so much fun as everyone is there and it's a big social event. The theatre will be filled with Christmas trees decorated by local businesses to be raffled off - the money raised goes to local charities so we will be buying lots of tickets over the next few weeks!
