advent calendar: posted on Dec 2, 6:41 pm by Rachel (Baldy Hill Homestead) - 2 entries
he first advent calendars I remember were the ones we received along with our family's World Book "Christmas in [insert country name]..." series back in the seventies and early eighties. The annual subscription included a handcrafted tree ornament, the beautifully photographed book detailing that year's featured country's Christmas traditions, and a paper advent calendar, which my brother and sister and I took turns opening its windows (with our mother refereeing). For small-town kids... (0 likes)

Oh Hi Holidailies!: posted on Dec 1, 8:38 pm by bozoette (Red Nose) - 2 entries
Yay! It's time for Holidailies, that beloved yearly tradition wherein bloggers and/or online journalers and/or diarists solemnly swear to post once a day until the end of the year. It's also a Holidailies tradition to introduce yourself to the group, just in case someone hasn't read your blog. So here we go - ten things about me (because I'm too lazy to do more than that and I conveniently have a category called "Ten Things"). (4 likes)

So many things this month, I'm not at home for at least two weekends (I'm on my way to London right now), I've got lots of deadlines as an author, I've been using the Bullet Journal for a year this month, and I've got all sorts of planners, stickers and other planning things coming in. So, today I'd like to talk a bit about everything, to start off easy. (1 like)

The signs on the greenhouse doors warn against the use of magic in six different languages, but even so, it’s tempting to do just a tiny warming spell to ward off the chill. Inside, Ophelia knows, the air will be warm and humid, but outside it’s Deep Winter, and she resents having her fingers go numb on the walk from the main house to the greenhouse where the Work is done.
