Last year I really got the urge early to start listening to Christmas music and it frustrated me! I'm definitely one of those who don't like to shortchange the Thanksgiving season. And I didn't want to tire of my Christmas music before it even got to Christmas! So I took my frustration to the iTunes store and looked to see if maybe there was some Thanksgiving music out there, too! And, oh happy day! There was! I downloaded a few albums of mostly instrumental music that brilliantly matched that autumn feel - the feeling of winding down - the feeling of reflection - the feeling of taking stock of your blessings. And the feeling of wanting to cozy up to a bowl of really good soup! This song does all those things! If you're wanting some holiday music of a non-Jingle Bell persuasion - at least for now - check out the album that this song is on. And make some soup!
My great group of girlfriends and I have been holding these Jumble Sales this past year.
We have a theme of reusing, repurposing, and recycling.
We call our little boutique "Twice Is Nice" and send out flyers and
invite all our friends to come see what we've been up to and maybe buy some of it!
We held the first sale in the spring and then the second one just last week.
We have so much fun doing it.
For me, though, it has become something more.
It has become a place to funnel all my creative energy - and
I have lots of it running around inside my head - keeping me up at night.
The thrill and buzz I get from looking at something and
imagining it in a new way is indescribable.
It is a high for me.
It is euphoric even.
