ENJOYING | the 2nd Christmas holiday. Yesterday was still an official Christmas holiday in Germany and I think everyone deserves not one, but two holidays for Christmas. Amirite?
EATING | all the Christmas cookies. I am on a serious sugar overload this week. (I usually don’t eat that many sweets, but I am making an exception, because hey, it’s Christmas.)
READING | Dragonfly in Amber (Outlander #2) by Diana Gabaldon. Almost done.
DRINKING | hot coffee by the Christmas tree.
WATCHING | holiday movies. Well, I’ve watched one over the weekend (A boy named Christmas) and I am hoping to catch a few more, but I am not trying to put too much pressure on myself.
THANKFUL | that I got to see some friends before the holidays. Since most of my family and friends live further away, I take all the “face-time” that I can get.
TAKING | a walk around our neighborhood to see all the Christmas decorations.
LOOKING FORWARD TO | having a few more days off “between the years”.
EXCITED | to set up my new planner for the new year. Both Jon and I got new planners “for Christmas” (well, we would have gotten them anyway, but wanted something to put under the tree!) and we’ll be having a planner set-up session this week.
WORKING | through all the different holiday content on the Peloton platform – from holiday-themed rides to short 15-minute stacking stuffer workouts, there was something for everyone!
LOVED | (sending and) receiving all the holiday cards in the last couple of weeks. It’s one of my favorite things of the holiday season.
HOPING | you had a lovely holiday weekend, wherever you are and whatever you were doing.
KEEPING IN MIND | that not everybody looks forward to the holidays because people have strained family relations, or are far away from their loved ones, or are generally stressed by the holiday expectations. I see you. Do what feels right. I am giving myself some grace this year as well. I love the holidays, but the spirit has been evading me a bit this year.
What’s currently going on with you?
