Christmas Cards

Every day brings a few more Christmas cards from friends and family far and near. I'm so enjoying reading their news and views. Some of the news is sad, but mostly it's happy.

But I do have a confession to make, I haven't yet written one single Christmas Card!

Last year I was so methodical. I spent a specific block of time each day until they were all written. This year I've decided to go for the Marathon approach. I'll dedicate a day within the next week, gather everything I need, and I'll start and keep going until they're all done. I won't mail a single one until every last one has been written, and then I'll mail them all together.

I'm not very good at finishing things, so if nobody gets a card from me this year, it'll mean I haven't finished them yet. There is some method behind my madness, though. The reason I'm not going to mail a single card until I've written them all is that it gives me time to decide whether I want to write a 'dear all' letter this year, and if so, who I'd like to send it to. If the cards are all done and in their unsealed envelopes, I can write, print off and add to any or all of them as the mood takes me.

Confesion here to, I start today.
You have an interesting blog and great photos too.

To answer your Q = yep the King and his people were water droplets, short of water so they all came together and made a lake - hence not short of water any more.

Sounds like a great plan! I hope to get mine done this week, but I have too many partial days that are uncommitted and too much else that requires blocks of time to ignore those minutes here and there.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I liked your meme, too. Nice memories you have there.
