This is such a holy and sacred time of the year. It is a time to go inward and to reflect and also, I think to plan a little for the year ahead. In that vein, I have to share just a few of my favorite things for the new year.
First of all, I am very content to see Heather offering a “Hibernate” on-line workshop. I signed up for it when the announcement first came out, and am so looking forward to it. You can find more details about that here: http://beautythatmoves.typepad.com/beauty_that_moves/2013/12/hibernate-online-workshop.html
I am also happy to see what Sheila wrote here about envisioning her year through a single word: http://sureastheworld.com/2013/12/16/word-2014/
I am pleased to see some more blogging about homeschooling from the Tan family over at Syrendell. For those of you homeschooling, are you ready for the last half of the school year here in North America, or are you already busy thinking about next year? Here is a blog post from Syrendell about fourth grade: http://syrendell.blogspot.com/2013/12/return-to-homeschooling.html
I would love to hear what you are focusing on these holy days and nights of Christmastide.
I dearly love that my birthday falls during this time of year…the wrapping up and tucking away of the year past and the fresh feeling of a new year ahead. I use it as a time for personal reflection and hopeful planning of ways in which I can be a better person in the year ahead. We don’t really take much of a homeschool break over the holiday leading up to Christmas, only between Christmas and Theophany, so it’s a time of year for reflection about that as well. Here’s wishing a fruitful year for all of us ahead! xo
Happy Birthday, Kyrie!!
Lots of love,
I also signed up for the HIbernate retreat. It looks perfect!
