Season’s Greetings

I don’t think I had truly realized how many blogs I followed until this week when I returned from a five day roadtrip to Nashville and found my inbox flooded with wintery writerly things.

I follow over 30 blogs? Over 35? Over 40? Even more?

Wow.

And then in exploring WordPress, I stumbled upon some setting that disables comments and realized I had accidentally turned it on for my last post.

Whoops.

But yes, I went on a road trip to Nashville and did fun things, like spending an entire morning in McKays (great, amazing, and huge used book store) where found many books, some that I got, some that I wish I could get, and some I was glad I don’t own, including this book I found that I decided looks quite hideous:

How’s that for a title?

Yes indeed.

It does look hideous, doesn’t it?

Also food for thought: there is one day a year that thousands of people are not the least surprised to find candy in socks.

Well, it seems like this is a bit of a random post, but there are things to be gathered and wrapped. Plans to be made. Hot cocoa to be sipped, fires to be stirred, snow to be shoveled (at least for some).

There waits some poems to be typed up, a list of best reads this year to be formulated, and a book to be plotted. (bahahaha *cracks knuckles*)

Oh and also candy to put in socks. πŸ˜‰

So I’m just dropping in to deliver a simple little Christmas card from me to you.

Merry Christmas!

(Side note: As much as I love writing about writing, books, poetry, and creative habits, I love holidays more because they are such a good excuse for everyone in the family to get together. I will not be posting next week because of joyous time with my awesome family, but shall most likely return with tags and rants and rain and scribbles next decade. Enjoy your holiday!)

  1. An entire morning in a bookstore sounds glorious, even if there are hideous titles. πŸ˜› The rest of my family never appreciates it when I linger in every bookstore we come across. Your handwriting is beautiful! I love that verse.

    Merry Christmas!!!

    1. Wandering a bookstore is definitely an experience! Both a somber and exciting one for me.
      Thank you! I really love that verse too. πŸ™‚
      Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!

  2. I’m glad you had fun in Nashville, Evelyn!! πŸ˜€ It sounded like such a great trip! Huge bookstores are the BEST. 😊
    That book, tho…just, WOWZERS. πŸ˜‚ I feel like the title does not fit at all with the picture of that girl’s somewhat creepy smile…😬🀣
    Candy out of socks…well, yes that’s true. πŸ€”
    Aw, the card is so pretty! I love your handwriting. ❀️
    I hope you have an absolutely fabulous Christmas, dear friend!! Enjoy all the festivities and have fun with the fam! ❀️ And can’t wait to see you next year!

    1. I KNOW RIGHT
      The smile though. *shudders*
      Thank you, my friend! I really did – it was really so lovely. ❀
      Though, the party is not over yet. πŸ˜‰ New Years Eve is only tomorrow!
      I hope you're having a wonderful time with your family!

    1. Thank you! (I actually made it and then was disappointed because the handwriting wasn’t what I wanted but then I guess that always happens with me and artistic endeavors πŸ™„)
      Yes. A very interesting book.
      Though not the kind of interesting where I want to actually read it. πŸ˜‚
      For some reason the title didn’t hook me enough…

    1. Walking through a bookstore can be highly entertaining. πŸ˜†
      Aww thanks friend. I’m so glad. ❀️
      Actually I don’t know! I didn’t go to a single concert. I drove there with my sister and she was only there to hang out at a college with a friend. So I ended up staying on the campus and explore classrooms and libraries. πŸ™ƒ
      I did listen to some Nashville artists through saved music on my phone though while I was there – does that count? 😜

  3. Wow. That…book…looks…quite hideous indeed. XD
    I’m so glad you had fun in Nashville!
    I just counted up how many blogs I follow, and, yes, they do add up quickly. πŸ™‚
    I love your hand lettering on the card! So lovely. I love to do hand lettering/calligraphy, as well, and I love seeing all the different styles of letters that people do. πŸ˜€

    1. They multiply alright. πŸ˜‚
      Ooh! A fellow artist of handwriting!
      A pleasure. *bows*
      It is fun to see other people’s work, isn’t it? I find it’s very helpful for collecting ideas which I love doing. πŸ™‚

  4. Lovely post and MERRY CHRISTMAS!! (Yeah… I was a little startled by that title XD)
    And that handwriting… *Sighs* I wish I could do something other than scribbles.

    1. Thank you, and Merry Christmas to you as well! Though a little late now, so… Happy New Years!
      I’m sure your handwriting is not bad at all!
      Besides. I like scribbles.
