Good good links #121

Five days until Christmas*?!! Okay, I’m actually getting both a smidgen sad and anxious now. Sad as the Christmas spirit really didn’t set in for me this year – hardly any decorations up, no advent calendar, Christmas music feels out of place. And anxious because I did what was supposed to be the final shopping for [ingredients for] Christmas gifts yesterday – and we didn’t find much at all. Oh well, it’s about time spent with family, right? As well as eating lots of treats so part of the Christmas ‘requirements’ is covered.

I’m not sure if I’ll post another edition of good links next Sunday or delay them by a day or two but I’ll let you know. Until then: soak up the holiday spirit [if you feel it] and enjoy your Sunday!

*we’re having the main celebration on Christmas Eve around here.

    Oh wow, I LOVED that ‘stealing social media’ article, and it’s a good wake up call for me to be considerate and kind of other people’s work, and truly care about all the work that they put into their creations to showcase God’s beautiful and awesome creation!
