This time of year I make a big effort not to feel harried and badgered into the Holiday craziness. It take a particular kind of discipline to stay in the moment and not give in to the "must do, must buy" Of course I get Christmas presents and I try to fulfill wishes of young ones. Some are getting homemade gifts and some are getting store bought. In my fantasy life everyone gets homemade gifts but that seems to not be my reality. There are a lot of books and craft supplies that are being given.
I am doing some last minute knitting too. I am not particularly stressed about this knitting and frankly, once you are knitting how can you be stressed. It is so relaxing. Of course I can't share pictures or details with anyone since this is going to be a present. And there are two more things in the pipeline which can of course also not be shared for the same reason. But I will take pictures and post them when I have mailed them off.
