Greetings and Blessings to all on this lovely, peaceful Christmas. Since I moved to this lovely peaceful place in upstate New York, I am able to spend the holiday any way I want to with my two lovely men and my one lovely dog.
I spent my entire day(or most of it anyway)listening to the new age CD's my hubby and son got me for Christmas. New Age music is something I never listened to until probably the last two or three months. I am so glad I found it, it brings me such peacefulness. I also hand embroidered the day away. I realized just how lucky I am to be satisfied and content with just beautiful music and a lovely hand embroidery project. That is also something I am very surprised to find out about myself, that I can be content just being. I'm Italian and in my not so far off past I would be sitting stuffing my face surrounded by a rather large family. That was fun but I really have to say I kind of prefer my peaceful little Christmas.
I'm not one for material things, just the things I love. Music, needlework, and books. I don't wear very much jewelry(although I love it) a simple cross and my wedding ring so jewelry wouldn't do much for me, I get as much joy from looking at the beautiful jewelry I can find on some of the blogs I read as I can get looking at it in my jewelry box. And clothing, well I'm not really much into that either I'm afraid. Just music, books and needlework and if I get to partake in them as I did today I am in heaven.
I hope your Christmas was heavenly! Keep stitching!
