“Some old-fashioned things like fresh air and sunshine are hard to beat. In our mad rush for progress and modern improvements let's be sure we take along with us all the old-fashioned things worth while.” Laura Ingalls Wilder

KISS (Keep It Simple Sweetheart)

This week I'm:
  1. Diffusing my own version of Thieves' Oil to help ward off the flu/cold season.
  2. Minimally decorating for Christmas. 
  3. Making meals with 90% fewer grains and feeling much better after our feast on Thanksgiving.
  4. Making plans with hubby .. HE HAS 20 DAYS LEFT TO WORK UNTIL HE RETIRES. 
  5. Getting my hair cut in a different style .. think layers :)
  6. Not letting the calendar get overbooked.
  7. Planning the Christmas dinner to be comfort food .. nothing fancy.
  8. Stoking the fire in the wood stove .. baby it's COLD outside!
  9. Putting the finishing touches on our new home office.
  10. Taking my grandson out on a special date.
Are you letting the 'season' get the better of you?  Or have you discovered the Joy that comes from simplifying? 

Season of Serenity
Do Less

No. Absolutely not. This year this season of joy and love is not going to get the best of me. I am also keeping it ever so simple. Presents are needed things only, not luxuries. With only the three of us this year the Christmas meal will be simple but still delicious, of course. The tree is up but I only used half of my ornament collection. And I only decorated the main living room instead of half the rooms in our two story house. So, yes, simple, and oh so peaceful. :)

Yes we're being simple too. I'm going to let my grandson help decorate the tree tomorrow. It's only a small one so we should manage it between us :)

I've simplified so much, my children now come over and put up and decorate the tree! What luxury!
I have almost no shopping to do since we draw names and I'm enjoying the season more then ever!

Your list is a great one, I think. (I love lists.....) And it's VERY simple here! Very.
