Monday in December....

a beautiful Monday....a bit too warm for me, but i played outside with my camera all morning so it was all good. i just finished the last work of this year ( a wedding in Berlin), it went well and I am editing away....but officially i am finished until next year, around Feb??? so glad for some downtime to finally clean my house, do some wildlife shots, get ready for Christmas, take a nap...just enjoying life. next year i plan on streamlining how i work, live, etc...course i say that every year and it just gets a "bit" better, just a bit...but that never dampens my ardor and i am excited to "re-arrange" how i live and work.

my husband got me a great new toolbox and power drill and i gotta say i love using it. thinking there may be some handyman (girl) projects coming up...thanks to all the cool DIY stuff i see on Pinterest! the tool box was on my list for this year, so just squeaked by on getting it. also need to make up a sewing kit. can't ever find a needle, straight pin or spool of thread 'round here. another just under the wire chore was for me to make a family yearbook. i used My Publisher and I LOVE THEM....now, i wasn't as organized with my photos as i am with my clients', so the book doesn't have the continuity that i would like, but i have decided to do one seasonally rather than 1 big one at the end of the year so that should make things more manageable.

i was working on the Christmas list for the family, and the thought occurred to me that i would love a new kitten...but i don't think my kitty (who is 13) would like it, so maybe one will wander up here and can stay! most of the shopping has been started, finally got the lights on our tree yesterday, and plan on decorating it tonight. i was a bit disappointed when it first went up, it seemed too slim, but i have to say, it is the best smelling tree we have had in a couple of years. that makes a bit difference to us. very Christmasy when i want in the door....

anyway...off to start dinner (Kenny's famous Crab Loaves from the freezer) and another cup of coffee (my Keriug is my fave new appliance), stay in the Spirit...
