April 2011 ~ Rudolph Day

Rudolph Day for April was yesterday. Mondays are always very busy days for me, but I planned ahead and made sure Rudolph Day was special anyway, incorporating some Christmasy fun into my day. I started out with a mug of Christmas coffee -- a blend of hazelnut and cinnamon.

I also put on some Christmas socks -- aqua with polka dots of red and green. They have a red Christmas tree on them too, but up closer to the ankle so the tree couldn't really be seen.

While having my morning quiet time, I sipped some Candy Cane Lane tea -- one of my favorites. I try to keep it on hand at all times.

While doing laundry and working at the computer, I listened to Christmas music -- A Classical Christmas and, later, Guitar Winterludes.

While eating lunch, I paged through Christmas Joy, by Susan Branch.

Later, when most of my work was done, I got out my Christmas notebook and did some work on my Christmas list and also on my Christmas crafting timelines. It felt great to get some more planning done. In the evening after supper, I spent time working on a Christmas in July gift for my swap partner on the Christmas crafters' forum.

And that was my Rudolph Day for April!

Quote for the day

"No matter what the calendar tells us, somehow in a crafter's heart and hands it is ever 'a little bit of Christmas'."
