KJZ at the RevGalBlogPals wrote this week's Friday Five asking for a list of things that mark the season and one that does NOTHING for you! So here goes! There is a clear and present theme of procrastination to three out of five of my markers of the season. And I guess that is one of the things that I don't really like about Advent. There is so much to do and never as much time as I would like. I don't mean to procrastinate or eliminate tasks from the "to do" list. It's just that I find that it is such a very long list. When I am old and perhaps not so busy, I would like to have a leisurely Advent. I would do the things that I did when I was an unmarried country pastor with a very small parish. Make my own cards, make my own wrapping paper, sew, craft, bake... but for now I am going to enjoy the cookies my mother makes, get some classy looking wrapping paper that doesn't wrinkle when you use it and try to feel guilt-free when we send out email greetings instead of snail mail Christmas cards.
