Getting ready

Have had a busy week, getting organised for this weekends retreat at The Sanctuary.
The lovely Faye Packham is coming to Bordertown and we are doing "Christmas in July".
The quilting is finished for the week, the stockings are made, ready for hanging, the presents are wrapped and the decorations are out to be hung tomorrow. Beds are made and the house all ready, even the weeds in the garden have been banished (well most of them!) The menu is planned and some cooking is happening tomorrow.
I must admit that the last few years, the lead up to Christmas has been so busy, that the decorations
have not been put up, as I was away for Christmas anyway. The commercialisation of Christmas is a concern, and here I am taking Christmas for a business purpose, but I have not forgotten just why we have Christmas and hope that those coming will be blessed and go home refreshed.
And the weather in Australia is usually rather hot, so this "Christmas in July" is a change.
Am looking forward to sitting by the fire and relaxing with good company, (well, in between providing the food that is!) So safe travel to those on the road to Bordertown tomorrow.
