{Happy Monday} Traditions

Good morning!

I have been hard at work cross-stitching a Christmas stocking while watching the autumn leaves swirl in the backyard.  It is hard to believe that winter and Thanksgiving and Christmas are fast approaching!  I was thinking about traditions the other day as I was stitching and wondering what would be different in our celebrations this year with my Mom gone and my children all grown up .  What traditions will I keep that Mom always did?  What will be my children's favorite memories as they start their own homes?  Which traditions will they want me to continue and which will they want to do on their own?   Christmas Stockings will be one tradition that I want to continue.  We've always opened them early Christmas morning, sitting around the tree... a tradition I brought from my childhood.  I hope that my children will carry that on as they get married and have children of their own.  Hence my cross stitching more stockings! : )

What traditions do you have in your home?  What did you most enjoy growing up?  The thoughts of holiday family dinners with my Mom bringing in food from the kitchen, all dressed up with an apron over her pretty skirt and blouse will always be one of my favorite memories.  What memories are you (and I!) passing on??

Here's your Happy Monday prompt for today...

" My favorite holiday tradition from my childhood that I have carried on is..."

Looking Ahead

Hello friends!

Did you realize that it is only a little over a month until Thanksgiving?  
This coming week might be a good idea to think through the upcoming holiday season.

Do you have guests coming for Thanksgiving?
Have you thought through your menu?
Is there any baking you could do ahead of time, or special ingredients that you could add to your shopping list over the next few weeks?
Would you like to make place cards for the holiday table?  Or a new table runner?
Are there any special cleaning tasks you could complete over the next few weeks so you wouldn't have to do them all at once?

Let's trade in our holiday stress and tension for thankfulness this year 
by planning ahead! : )


P.S.  Are you ready to plan ahead for Christmas?  Maybe our Holiday Planner can help!

The Home Journal is monthly/weekly planner designed to be printed on your home printer, three-hole punched and kept in a full sized three ring binder.  It is perfect to keep at home on the kitchen counter as a "go to" planner for your appointments, to do's, menus and it even gives you housekeeping reminders for the week and the month!

Happy Monday!

Oh dear!  I have nothing special to say today except - "Happy Monday!!"  We're in Monday mode here - gathering orders and printing Classic Home Journal pages and packaging what we can to ship this afternoon.  Then there is the normal household catch up from the weekend, and planning the week ahead.  I'm thankful for Mondays.  They remind me to continue on.  To find joy in each task and put my whole heart into it, doing it well, for God's glory.  To be thankful for God's continued care, and to spur me on to find ways to share that care with others this week.

So here's your Happy Monday prompt, and I'll see you back here on Wednesday - Lord willing!

New beginnings are...

Hi friends!

I've been down with a bad cold this week, so if you've emailed and I haven't gotten back with you, or if your order hasn't shipped yet, I'm so sorry!  I'm hoping that I'll be able to get caught up next week.  Thank you for your patience!!!
