|my current outlet for stress...origami is highly addictive (no scrap of paper is safe)|
"peace serpents" (a Savannah original-concept)
running in with tidbits about deer stampedes
|on the phone to Laiba in Pakistan|
meltdowns and hysteria (sometimes even the children)
secrets in the cupboard
headaches and sore tummies
|'the christians and the pagans' ;)|
cleaning (not even close to being done that yet)
knitting (all major projects finished...wooot!)
a solar system
Black Beauty audio-CD
.....and lots of deep breaths and cuddles.
it's truly difficult to hang onto peaceful life at this time of year. desperately i'd like to cocoon us in a fortress of solitude...but at the same time, we enjoy (mostly) the hustle and bustle of family and going and doing....
i'm not one for retrospectives and cringe at the thought of 'resolutions'.... but i am ruminating on some intentions for 2011....an aspect of which i've started over here.. it struck me as a most delightful project and one i intend to continue on past the month of January.
but for now...it's one day to the next until Xmas....and i don't mind admitting, i'll be glad when it's all over. ;)
