once upon a dreary Monday morning



morning darling ones.

yup is a dreary day today, it's almost 8:00am and it looks like night, one of those days that you wish it were still the weekend, and you were still in bed with your bubs (note I said your bubs, not that you wish you were in bed with MY bubs)

anyway....did y'all have a nice weekend?? Mine was low key but in a way, spectacular. We "Christmased" up the house, we have 2 Christmas trees and other little wintertime pretties al, over the place. You know what, it's really nice and it makes me feel good and very secure to see it.

what's up with that? Does that mean I am getting old? Seriously I could sit and watch the lights on the tree for hours, and you know what....at one point that is what I did, I curled up with my book and blankets and just relaxed.

It seems so long ago that I was involved in the hustle and bustle of our comic shop, and before that, living in NH and winter being the busy theater season.

It is all so remote, but in a good way.

My life seems simple and profound at the same time, my joy from the "little things" has grown tremendously, I think that comes from really being and love, and well...being poor. Now that I have no money, it really makes me realize what is important and what is not.

Seriously, I came downstairs at one point yesterday and noticed a few small presents with my names on them under our tree....and I almost cried, it made me so happy, not because I would be getting presents soon (though I do love that) but just the fact that my bubs got me stuff and secretly wrapped it already....well it touched my heart.

I don't know what has gotten into me, I am living in sappy city today....maybe it's all the holiday cheer.

So today, is what is known as "cybermonday" the busiest internet day of the whole year, the theory being this is when people start doing their internet shopping for the holidays, and now that they are all back to work, well....that is the perfect time to start.

I guess, or something like that. SO anyway, it's cyber blah blah....so that means I can almost guarantee that lots and lots of etsy shops will be having special sales (I know I am, hint hint), so if you have not started your internet Christmas shopping yet, now is the time for sure.

ok, I'm off...the picture shown today is of two new pieces, one is already available in my shop and the other will be listed later today.

I love two trees!! Ans I love the small things too! I really don't think that staring at the tress for hours means you are getting old... I think it means that you still have the childlike outlook, witht he love for the twinkling lights!!!!

Oh, I am even teary eyed over your already labeled gifts!!!! Swoon Swoon Swooooooon!!! xoxoxoxo

It sounds dreamy, Jenn! You make me want to put up my tree. Maybe that will be tonight's activities. Catch you next time in C-bus.

I love how you speak of getting old and appreciating the small things, the details in life. This was a wonderful post.

Wait! You said, "bubs"! It's a plural for "bub"? :-)

Spent the night of Thanksgiving at a friend's place in NJ where we (and by we, I mean other guests) all piled up and slept on the sofa, inflatable beds, sleeping bags, every available space on the floor.

So while trying to get some sleep and trying NOT to snore too loudly (yeah, I've been known to wake the whole house up with my snoring), I realized that this was my FIRST sleeping party since I was in college.

Personally, I would have rather taken the train and the subway (at 2 AM) back to NYC so I can sleep in my own bed....that is if someone would drive me to the train station. I told my brother that, and he accused me of being "old" and "fuddy duddy"!

SO don't tell me you feel old. I'm OLDER!
