It's been a strange weather kind of week. It's October and it's been almost 90 degrees the last few days, with a breeze causing the leaves to cascade down in a leaf storm. It felt more like fall in June than it does now. It certainly doesn't feel like the time to keep working towards Christmas. Which is exactly why I still need to do it. If I wait until it "feels" like it should, I will already feel behind and overwhelmed.
So today I am treating myself and coaxing myself back into the spirit of things by downloading decorating/crafting/cooking books on my Kindle and looking back through the books I already have. I collect cookbooks and reread them like other people reread their favorite novels. So, this is a fun relaxing way to get back on track.
Some of my favorites are any of Mary Engelbreit's crafty/cook books, Gooseberry Patch (love them all!), A Homemade Year by Jerusalem Greer, and I like a free e-book on my Kindle, Homemade Christmas Gifts and More. I'm getting lots of homemade gift ideas, which I love.
Now to get motivated enough to start making them...
