So now the Christmas season begins. Are you doing anything new this year? I have read on the internet in several places that instead of gifts, this would definitely be the year to donate money to a food bank, shelter or other non-profit that helps those in distress. A real gift would also be to donate time.
My daughter-in-law wants her gift to be John taking out a low kitchen ceiling cupboard that interferes with the view from the kitchen to the breakfast room. Unfortunately, my son, her husband absolutely does not want John to do this because, he says, it will lead to a dozen other more expensive projects.
The "book" shelves above are from Real Simple Magazine. Cute. And they are real simple.
After all the good food we ate this weekend and the running around, I just want to sit and read a book.
