Christmastime. Every year I say I will be more prepared and less stressed.
There are 70 days…..
In the book I’m reading (and loving) See You In A Hundred Years, they are living life as in the year 1900. The author made a handcarved Huck Finn raft for his son and a carved pair of black walnut chopsticks for his wife. They gave homemade baked and canned goods to their friends and family.
A few years ago I read Bill McKibbon’s Hundred Dollar Holiday. In the spirit of preparation I am thinking of reading it again. Interested to know if anyone else has read this? I’m somehow thinking $100 is not going to make it for me with children, but again, I think we can keep things simple and beautiful this year.
