Yesterday was graduation at our university. I worked 10 hours straight and when I finally sat down during commencement, I could feel the exhaustion setting in. This was my third graduation as a staff person and I feel the exhaustion each time.
I run on pure adrenaline.
This one went more smoothly than the two previously. (The one in May went really great, I thought. I didn’t plan last December’s.) This one, though, was well received and there were plenty of compliments. We also didn’t have a ton of leftover food.
Something we have realized is that for our December receptions, cookies are not well-received. In May, though, they are the first things to run out. Isn’t that interesting? By mid-December, it appears people are noticing what they are eating…or they are tired of cookies.
I haven’t baked any Christmas cookies yet. That’s a little shocking for me. I think I’ll need to do that on Sunday afternoon. It seems to be my only free time this weekend.
What cookies do you like to make at Christmastime?
Welcome back to another week of Stream of Consciousness Saturday. This is the time where I spend 5 minutes free writing. I usually post this for Saturday morning, but sometimes that just doesn’t happen. It’s totally fine.
Want to participate? The rules….
1. Set a timer for five minutes. (Or keep tabs with your computer’s clock.)
2. Write freely. Any topic. Whatever is on your mind. It doesn’t even have to be completely cohesive.
3. Tag on social media with #SOCSaturday or #SOCSunday and link up below. You have all day Saturday and Sunday to join the link up. It closes Monday morning.
4. Click around and give some comment/blog love.
