Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

Normally I am positive and upbeat but today I feel zapped – my energy level is low and the high anticipation of Christmas and New Years has waned – I AM TIRED!  It’s because of all the death and destruction around us…from Hurricane Sandy to the massacres at Sandy Hook Elementary School- I am praying for strength and peace for our nation.

Not that it makes matters worse but I just realized that I last wore this skirt on 9/11 (see here)…things have definitely got to get better, being on vacation next week may help.

There are so many interpretations for today, 12 12 12, but only one fact ~ none of us will be alive to see another repeating-number-date!

I’ve read that the number 12 is prominent, 12 is a number of universal imports seen in our culture; 12 hours of the day, 12 months of the year, 12 in a dozen, 12 zodiac signs, 12 apostles, and 12 days of Christmas.  There are suggestions to enjoy the beauty of the procession of the December holidays, starting by lighting miracles in the days of Hanukkah, leading to the gateway day of 12.12.12; stepping through the threshold of December 21, the Winter Solstice; walking into the 12 days of Christmas, and finally embracing the seven principles of Kwanzaa for a renewed human experience.

Whatever the interpretation, I do plan on doing something special by being extra kind to someone and paying it forward, it will be a small gesture to make this day bigger and more significant than the others.

Are you planning or have you done something special to mark this day?

Don’t forget that tonight is the 12-12-12 Concert to benefit victims of Hurricane Sandy – wonder what Kanye has to say about President Obama?

Hello Friends and Happy Monday, 15 days until Christmas and the 7th day of Hanukkah 2012.

 Today is one of those, “jump back into bed pull the covers over your head” type of days.  It’s cold, damp and dreary,  but it’s also another day the Lord has kept us so I’ll rejoice and be glad in it.  However, the dreary weather is cause for my dreary outfit including the sensible shoes.

Hello Friends and Happy Fri-Yay!

I hope your day is going well and that plans for the weekend are in full gear – enjoy!  My mother-in-law is doing well and I thank you for all your prayers.  Tonight the boys and I will be visiting taking a small table-top Christmas Tree to brighten up the room and raise her spirits.  All week I have been psyching myself up to start decorating and have decided that tomorrow is the day, oh Lord.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I don’t like decorating for the holidays, it just getting motivated to start because I HAVE TOO DAMN MUCH.  If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen pics of just a few bins of Christmas decorations that are in my basement’s crawlspace.  When my sons were younger, they were all gung-ho and couldn’t wait to help – now it’s like pulling teeth and hubby is a Muslim so he only helps to put the boxes away, the majority of the work falls on me.  The older I get the more I understand why people paid others to decorate their homes, remember this episode from “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air”?

It’s not as cold as I expected but there’s a cold rain falling so I bundled up with a scarf for casual Friday.

Hello friends and Happy FRI-YAY!!

I love this time of the year, the autumn colors are so vibrant and the air is crisp and clean ~ “it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas”.  Here we are, one week before the infamous “Black Friday” shopping frenzy, though some stores are opening on Thursday now being labeled as “Black Thursday”.  Will you be out shopping or standing in long lines waiting for the latest gadget or gizmo?  I’ve never done it but really want that $99.00 camera deal being advertised by Target – aah I can wait.

Today is casual Friday so I decided to wear a khaki skirt with a sweater and booties.

The beauty of autumn colors is breath taking!
