Day 190: Can I Do This???

"For what it's worth: it's never too late to be whoever you want to be. I hope you live a life you're proud of, and if you find that you're not, I hope you have the strength to start over." )F. Scott Fitzgerald)
Hello, my lovely friends!
Christmas in July, what was I thinking? I love Christmas, but what kind of blogs can I put together this month? Am I crazy for thinking I could do this? Yep, these were the things I thought about yesterday when thinking about the blogs, but then it hit me. When the holidays roll around, I have all these things that I want to do, but I don’t have the time to do them. See where I’m going??? That’s what I’m going to do this month. This way, if I do this right come Christmastime I will be ahead of my game. That’s the plan at least.
Did you know that every Friday on the Hallmark channel in the evening they play a Christmas movie? They’re celebrating ten years of Christmas movies and will do this the whole year on Fridays. This Thursday they’ll start showing their Christmas movies I think it’s for two weeks. and it will be on the Hallmark Movies and Mysteries channel too. I know we’ll be watching quite a few of them and I’ll DVR some of them. I don’t think we’ll have hot cocoa while watching them though, maybe a nice glass of lemonade or iced tea will do.
For several years now I do the “12 Days of Christmas” blogs and every year I try and come up with new things for each day. There have been two ideas in my head floating around for years and one seems impossible and the other not so much. Let’s take about the impossible idea. I thought about filming a few minutes each day or something that had to do with that day, but where am I going to find half of the things on the list? So, plan #2 has to do with cooking. What I want to do this year is post recipes, BUT these are recipes I actually make. I want to have a mix of hot drinks, desserts, and savory things. I have a spiral with the idea for each day and what I want to make for that day written down, but I never do it. If I start this now, I can make all twelve things in time for the blogs in December.
The first thing I need to do is write down a plan for the holidays. I know it seems early, but too many times I’m trying to do too much, and it feels unorganized and I hate that. So tomorrow’s blog is all about putting a plan together.
