Nineteen and Counting

I haven’t posted in a while but that does not mean that I have not been a busy girl (although I feel more like a busy old lady).  My esty shop has been keeping me on my toes.  Seven rune orders last month and although I could do it faster, I prefer to do it the old fashion way…. by hand. 
ornaments and candlesYule is only 19 days away and I am happy to say I have all my shopping done.  Now it is time to write my Yule cards, wrap all those presents and start my holiday baking.  The weather has been so warm here though that I have been far from a mood to bake.  But I do have a few new recipes I want to try.  Plus the dry weather lends itself wonderfully to doing some of my goodies. 
I guess if you believe in the end of the Mayan calendar the nineteen  and counting could be a countdown to the end… I choose to believe otherwise.  A change?…. Possibly…. hopefully…. It sure could not hurt.  I am ready for some positive changes… some goodness… some fun… And what better time to achieve such a goal then during the Yule time. 
beeAnd of course in nineteen days, my most favorite event of all… The shortest day of the year…… which means…. A return to the sun.  A return to more sunshine and longer days…. See there is always something good to look forward to.

Good for you Janie! Keeping busy is a good thing, eh? Great that your shop is doing so well! :)

It is my understanding that the Mayan calendar is one in which it is the end of a cycle, not the end of the is a new beginning and one which will bring much needed change.

I hear you on the baking it is supposed to be 62 degrees in Southern Wisconsin. I'm not firing up the oven on a warm day for anyone, lol.
So..if the cookies and goodies get baked it'll have to be on a much cooler day. I hope we have a few of them in December! Hah!

Here Comes The Sun!
Happy Yule my Brilliant Sister!
Love and Blessings,
