Greeting cards have all been sent

Or maybe not.

As I mentioned in my last post, I've been pulled in a lot of directions this month. I would love to be able to read all your holiday posts, and to take photos in my once-a-year finery and join some link-ups. But instead I'm going to take a break for a couple of weeks and limit my online time so I can be fully present in my here and now. Santa was a little mad about that accident last year, so he's banned all us elves from using social media while we're in flight.

I wish you all peace, strength, hope and happiness in the coming year. And on Christmas, be sure to leave some treats out for Santa - he's less grumpy to work with when he's well fed.

I'll sign off with my favorite Christmas song, the late, great Karen Carpenter with her lovely voice singing Merry Christmas, Darling.


Happy Holidays!
Val

Happy Christmas to you, dear Val!!! I think you have the right idea!!! Too much social media doth a dull girl make!!! (Resolves to get off the computer!)x

Paula Ruta said...

Merry, merry, Val! I too, will be taking some time off; my last post is today, for a wee-bit. The best to you and yours! Xoxo

Enjoy the break, something we all need to consider at this time of year! Catch you on the 'other-side' ... J

Didn't she have the clearest, most angelic voice? Enjoy your holiday break, and steal some of Santa's cookies while you're at it. ;-)

Hugs, Val! I'll miss seeing you, if I don't take a break too. It's great to be fully present in the "meat life" as I've heard it called; I prefer 3D life.
May your holidays be filled with booze, bwa-ha-ha, or whatever else it takes to mellow out and go with that positive flow.
All the very best for you and yours in the new year.
It's amazing how such a strong bell-clear voice could come out of such a tiny person.

Have a truly Wonderful Christmas! to you and all your dearest and a Happy New year too, and I promise not to leave a potato for Rudolph this year as I haven't heard the last of it x x x

Have a wonderful Christmas, Val. I certainly empathise with the pulled in all directions feeling (I'm typing this with one hand while shovelling some food in my mouth with the other, having just got home from work...) I'll be ready and waiting eagerly for your return after the festivities! xxx

Tootles Val - hope to see you numerous times in the year to come around the fashion boards.

Popped in my Carpenters Christmas CD today. Still makes me sad Karen is gone.

I understand about the needed social-media downtime. I keep thinking about the same thing for me, but then I find something else that I think I need to blog about, and so it goes...

Wishing you a warm and happy Christmas!
