How was your weekend? We had the loveliest Thanksgiving though I have to say I love the days after a lot too. It feel like a big exhale after hosting and all and no I am not ready to do Christmas yet! There was a whole week almost until December this year after Thanksgiving and I am resisting the rush to get it all up and start the Christmas crazy train.
I like the holidays as much as anyone else, but I am taking this week to detox a bit. I feel like the past month has been a little harried and of course I’ve eaten whatever I wanted the past week. I think I’m going to try to eat really fresh this week, drink a lot of herbal teas and water, and take some long walks. I’d like to try to get a little centered and find some calm by purging the house a bit and making a some plans and lists for December before plunging in.
How do you all cope/plan for the holidays? Each year I say I’m going to do a little less, but make it more meaningful. Less stuff more experiences- you know?
Did any of you get to do some tv watching this long weekend? I finally got to finish The Durells in Corfu and it was fantastic. I don’t know what I would do without Masterpiece. I highly recommend that show about an expat Brit family and their life fitting into the Greek culture in the 1930s and their quirky kids. It’s based on a true story. My other favorite is Grantchester which I am behind on and I’m hoping to start Poldark…So many good shows and I can’t stay awake for them!
You may have noticed my blog has been redesigned. I finally decided to take the plunge and switch to WordPress too. So far it seems doable, but standby as I work out some kinks! I love the design by Little Blue Deer. Seems to fit the blog’s style perfectly.
Stay tuned..tomorrow is my post about the charming town of Ojai. My new favorite spot in California!
