Friday Potpourri

Hey ~ it's Friday
and although my vacation time is coming to an end
I will welcome the routine and hustle and bustle in the coming weeks


this is the second year in a row that I have taken this week 
as part of my vacation and I kinda like it

just getting my baking alone done alleviates my stress level
it really does 


my days have been full of shopping and baking
sorting and writing
slow cook meals and quiet nights
appointments and our first party of the season

today is my do nothing day ~ and you know I will be doing something
but hope to find time to grab a mug of hot chocolate later
or sink into a bubble bath



Sunday I will pack the car with sweet stuff and head out to a cookie exchange
I will get to see some of my favourite people
including my God daughter that got engaged last Friday
so excited for her ~ she texted me a picture of her ring ~ he did good
the date is set for August next year ~ she is going to be a beautiful bride



tomorrow we will go to the local nursery to pick out our tree
and bring it in later next week

there are so many things to be thankful for this holiday season
and I will be taking some time leading up to Christmas to pay it forward

thanks for visiting and have a great weekend

Oh those quotes!! He was a good, wise man. And I loved that tape tree. So simple and cute!! Glad your time off has been productive friend. That helps so much.

You seem to be well on the way with your preparation for Christmas. Enjoy your weekend and have fun decorating your tree. Love the pictures and the quotes.


I love those kind of days ... days to do nothing. Hope yours was lovely.
