My dear readers, I am sure you have heard the term….Elevating the Everyday.
OK…I am not going to get all philosophical here…
or try to tell you how to live your life.
Hey, why not grab a cup of whatever and let’s talk a bit…
just you and me…
….and no one else.
If you are like me, you are feeling the days rushing by and before we know it, we will be in the New Year.
In the blogging world, we bloggers have to be ahead of the game, much like the fashion world.
That means we are working with Thanksgiving tablescapes in October and Christmas decorating at Halloween.
I am usually a day late and a dollar short, if you get my drift.
Can you relate to me or are you one of those who already have your Christmas decorations out and your home all decorated for Christmas in the second week of November?
That is ok, if that is you.
It is not me, although there have been years when I have started dragging out the Christmas boxes in order to be ready for the day after Thanksgiving’s Tree decorating.
I still have Fall and Autumn all over my home.
No Christmas boxes …YET.
I still have pumpkins and apples decorating my entry.
The term elevating the everyday can mean many things to many different people.
I want to elevate my home by enjoying each and every day.
I want to enjoy the month of November as the month of Thanksgiving.
Right now, I am baking little pumpkin loaves in my cozy kitchen and the smell is of so good.
I want to enjoy the here and now.
That doesn’t mean I can’t make a few Christmas plans and put it down on paper.
Last evening, I did just that.
I am planning a different Christmas tablescape that I can’t wait to come to fruition, so I had to go online and order a few things.
The Captain and I also discussed the plans for our trip to New York for Christmas, as we have done in years past.
Some things can be on the spur of the moment, but some things are better planned….so we have made those plans.
My elevating the everyday is simply enjoying what each day brings.
I don’t want to get in a rut, nor do I want to wish my life away.
As a child, I used to wish Christmas would hurry and come…or my birthday or any other special planned event.
Mother used to say…don’t wish your life away…enjoy the moment.
So today, I am elevating the everyday.
It just so happens today is my birthday and the weather is beautiful here in Florida.
I am enjoying today and all it brings.
Tomorrow is another day!
