But I'm in the Christmas music spirit anyway! I love Christmas music. No, that's an understatement. I ADORE Christmas music! So my entry today for the Gratitude Countdown until Thanksgiving is...Christmas Music!! I've been biting at the bit to post Yuletide tunes on my music playlist, and I was going to wait until after Thanksgiving, but I can't help myself. That list is by no means comprehensive of what I love, but I haven't had time to add any more to it. It's a start, anyway! I put it on random play so you should hear a new arrangement all the time.
The image above is from a linocut that I did years ago. It was so much fun to do, although it was a bit tricky to carve the letters backwards so that it would read correctly when printed. Fortunately I only had to do 3 letters! I've always had a soft spot for this little print.
So go jingle your way through the day, and even if you live in a hot and sunny place like I do, may you feel the goodwill, excitement and quiet giddiness that the season can bring!
In honor of autumn, I made a new bag yesterday. It's for my househunting trip to Virginia next week, isn't it fun? I just love polka dots.
I'm a little nervous of how Hazel is going to handle the 14 hour travel time...she has turned into such a wiggly bug the past few months! At least it's just Hazel and me on the trip. Steve couldn't take the time off so he's going to be at home with the other kiddos. Thanks in advance to my friends for helping to watch Eliza and Hyrum while I'm gone! Even with the inevitably crazy travel, I'm excited to go. I'll be able to see some good friends I haven't seen in 5 years, so that will be loads of fun. I've got a lot to do before I leave...so I'd better sign off now!
