6 Words

The last Wednesday of every month, Eli compiles a post inspired by Ernest Hemingway, who said any story can be told in six words. Eli asks bloggers, friends, strangers, and a few strange blogger friends to respond to a prompt. This month's is as follows:

November 30 is Stay Home Because You're Well Day - who knew, right? In six words, share what you would do if you took a wellness day off from your usual activities.

For me it was easy: Get all my Christmas stuff done (I'm #24 on Eli's list of responses)

What Christmas stuff do I need to get done? Almost everything!

Well, a lot of my Christmas shopping is done and a good number of Christmas cards have been popped in the mail. But I still have to put up the Advent calendar (tomorrow) and the Christmas tree (fake); wrap the gifts I've purchased to see what still needs to be bought; do my Christmas baking and plan my Christmas dinner menu. Most of that can be done in a day, no? Maybe not the baking, but the rest of it...?

Unfortunately, I can't take today off, well or otherwise. This morning I'm off to a women's event at church, this afternoon I'm working, and after that I'm paying a visit to our financial advisor to make sure our ducks are all in a row. When I get home, I'll put my feet up for sure. Maybe I'll write a few more Christmas cards and get that dinner menu out of the way.

  1. Getting into the spirit of things with W's Christmas movies --- something every night, although uneven. Still...
    25 more days to go. Lots to do, most of it to be done in a big rush at the end. ;)
    Maybe too ambitious for the Christmas meal. THAT I'll have to give more thought to.
    Will yours be a veggie Christmas? I wish my group would eat tofurkey. I'd be happy to serve it up.


I appreciate your comments and try to respond to each one!
