Prepare, Ready and Being Present
With one child home this is what the coffee table looks like (and that is just in 24 hours). This morning I tidied up and I know that my work will be disassembled and rearranged. I'm okay with that, if the mess is not here neither are my children :)
My goal is to make one batch of cookies a day, so far so good!
My knitting is sort of in a stand still, I'm working on a hat and a pair of socks. Yesterday I started a lace scarf about three different times because I just couldn't decide on whether I liked the lace design. When I quit last night I was settled on a pattern, let's hope I still love it this morning.
You know, I love iceberg lettuce, I know it's not very green and there are other healthy choices but the crunch that you get from iceberg is perfection. Three salads made per special order to go along with the home made turkey rice soup I made yesterday because I felt just a bit under the weather. A tiny wee bug that I'm sure will disappear, it has to, Christmas is arriving.
So with being present and enjoying the NOW, I am thinking about how my husband is outside early this morning fixing the garage door that broke. The damage is enough that I'm sure it will take at least 3 to 4 hours to fix. When he propped the door open for me to drive the two cars out, one didn't start :/ We only replaced the battery last year so I'm guessing it might be an alternator problem.....
Coffee is on, Frodo is snuggling on my lap because it's a cold cold morning, Christmas music is playing and after lunch my son and I will be getting my daughter. I am excited about having my family home. Who knows what next Christmas will bring with the two of them graduating in the spring.
A random post of what's going on here, how are your preparations and being in the present?
