cff A BUSY DECEMBER | Simple and Serene Living


Saturday, December 12, 2020

Where has this month gone? I can't believe that it is half over and this is my first post of the month.

Have I been busy? Yes, of course, I have. It's the holiday season and along with decorating and gift buying there seem to be so many other things to do.

It's my birthday month so my car registration had to be renewed along with the yearly emissions inspection. Done.

The probate papers on my mom's estate had to be completed and sent to the court in Kentucky. Done.

Stocking, selling, and shipping for my Etsy shop. Still being done.

My oldest grandchild, Jack Henry, turned eighteen (how is that possible?), and that had to be celebrated. Done.

Playdates with Tessa and Trixie. Ongoing.

Christmas cards and stamps ordered and received. Will be done today.

And on and on it goes. 

Christmas will be different this year. With covid raging out of control, most of us will be hunkered down in our homes. We haven't decided how we are going to do things yet, but they will not be like other years. 

Tessa likes to watch Santa's progress, as he makes his way around the world, with me so she said we can do it together on Facetime this year. 

As the month rolls by I am cozy and safe in my apartment. I feel blessed.

Until we meet again join me on PinterestInstagramLTK, and Etsy.


  1. I'm so glad your two oldest grandchildren are close. He's such a handsome 18 year old! And glad you have these tasks completed that you've been worrying over. That will help you relax a bit more.

  2. Wow your grandson is handsome and now going into adulthood. Where does the time go right? Sounds like you have your check list almost done. I think this will be a very different Christmas for all of us. Maybe in some ways good to have quieter and more peaceful reflection on Christmas this year. Enjoy getting ready. Hugs. Kris

  3. Lovely granddaughter and handsome grandson. Wonderful blessings in your life. It's definitely a busy time of year even though our Christmas celebrations will be very different this year. Big Sigh!
    I, too, feel cozy and safe in my little home. Home is the best place to be right now.

    Take care!

  4. Your Christmas decor is so cute, Laura. Thanks for sharing with us. Also thanks for your visits to Writing Straight from the Heart, and your comments, too. Hope your holiday is blessed and happy. Stay safe. Susan
