Ah, December. That wonderful time of year when it becomes almost impossible to actually get anything done. At work, it’s a race to get things finished before vacation. At home, it’s Christmas shopping & family obligations. I’ve been staying up later than usual, and sometimes it seems that I’m accomplishing less.
This time of year, personal hobbies can take a back seat. Instead of working on my own projects today, I spent some time helping my Mom wrap presents. I have two young nephews, and I have to say it’s amazing how many toys for toddlers are packaged in ways that are inimical to wrapping paper.
We did have time for a bit of arts & crafts fun – the older nephew is going through a “pirate” phase, so we decorated and filled a treasure chest for him. Not exactly expert craftsmanship, but fun to do.Don’t fear, however! I’ve got a few ideas in the works, and with vacation time on the horizon I hope to have a couple of juicy posts coming up before the end of the year!
