the moods of christmas
just a week away….
i’ve got a full 2 weeks off for Winter Break but with working right up until the Holidays i feel this need to have everything ready. i’ve just got a few “to-do” items left on my list.
with the past 3 weekends of snow storms and ice storms i’ve been in the mood for doing lots of at home baking and crafting.
food network and old movie watching on TBS. (that TV station is so fun for day long, one after another, movie favorite). also puts me in that Holiday mood.
i’ve been relaxing and doing some great reading too!
all said….it’s been a pretty good, pre-holiday season.
this past saturday, early in the day, just before the 8″ snow storm was suppose to hit we took a trip downtown. it just isn’t Christmas without visiting the windows at my favorite Anthropologie Store and a trip down Michigan Ave. this year we also made a new stop at the Daley Plaza to see the Outdoor German Christmas Market.
great huge snow flakes, flying through the city in the backseat of a taxi cab, catching glimpses of Macy’s Christmas windows pass by the car window and beautiful lights everywhere you look, shoppers rushing with bags of goodies, and a fashion show of scarves.
Christmas in Chicago on a cold, snowy day…
it puts you in the mood.
