December Was a Bit Too Leisurely - An IWSG Post

Happy New Year everyone! I feel like I’ve been away for so long but it’s only been two weeks. Did I miss anything? Did anything exciting happen in the blogging world? Do tell!

As for me, well…I don’t have a lot to report in the writing world. This was me the last two weeks:


I’m the worst gift wrapper in all the land. My presents pretty much look like the one pictured above.


A surprise guest let me know they would be there Christmas morning so I braved the crowds and did some last minute Christmas shopping just days before the 25th.


I cooked like a madwoman! While I’m no Gordon Ramsey (although I’m known to curse like him at times), I know my way around the kitchen so when family is in town, it’s time to get busy making their favorite meals.


Of course, all that cooking led to lots of eating. And more eating. And still more eating.


The reality of it all is that we spent a lot of quality time together. No running around. No set plans. For me, no high expectations of what I wanted my Christmas week to be. I cherished being surrounded by my family and friends. So while not much writing was done, my heart is full.

Now that the season is over it’s time to get back into the routine of writing a few times a week. I enjoy my leisurely place but December was a bit too leisurely in that department. Time to get back on track.

Did you get sidetracked from any of your projects in December? Did you overeat?

ETA: I woke up with a migraine. I’ll visit everyone when I’m feeling better.
