Ah… December. It is certainly one of the prettier months around here. and this year it was exceptionally full of smiling faces. and typically full of twinkle lights, fun cocktails, and knitting. The video version* also captures more moody skies, a quick binge through the latest Great British Bake-off Holiday and some very delightful little boy antics.
I finished five knits
and TEN books!
I know this is only eight – the other two were for my small group, Sacred Rhythms and Names for the Messiah and I didn’t snag their photos when I finished them. Turns out a good Looking Back process really does require a good Looking at Now process, too.
Here are a few other thoughts about the month:
Best part – hands down, all the family time and I’m especially grateful Sara was here.
What worked – a day or two of downtime in between a crazy-for-me schedule of gatherings and parties. I love how these show up as skies and twinkle lights in the photo collage.
Favorite new thing(s) – new traditions (I hope) for Hanukkah and Advent; Bon Appetit’s YouTube channel (which Sara introduced us to)
Best entertainment – Sam on video 🙂
Did you find something new last month that you hope to continue into this year/next December? Do share!
And have a lovely weekend.
*I’m taking a break from the #1SE daily videos this year. It was getting to be a burden and as much as I LOVE the finished product each month, I was ready to lay down that daily to-do. I haven’t taken a video since that last midnight on NYE and it’s felt quite freeing. Marie Kondo talks about holding our things to see if they give us joy. I’m evaluating a few of my routines in this same light.
