  •  It’s getting close to the time to make some final decisions if you’re going to mail food gifts to someone for Christmas.

    Many people are interested in sending their own family favorites to friends and family. I’ve heard of a mom putting frozen sausage in a post office overnight envelope because the daughter couldn’t get a special kind where she moved. (Note: I don’t recommend this unless you take special care to send it in an insulated container with some form of ice. Thawing food at room, or mail truck, temperature is not recommended!)

    Just on the off chance your holidays are not totally Norman Rockwell-esque, take a look at the following checklist.

      ______    Lonely

  •  Christmas season is hard upon us. Long weeks of jingling bells, canned carols, red and green ornamented store aisles have filled this time with advertised calls to buy … buy … buy. Little notice has been given to the presence of an Advent expectancy, a waiting time spent in remembering as well as preparing for renewed birth.

  •  Cookies are basically the point of Christmas, right? And, since Christmas cookies don’t have calories, you can bake all you want without feeling guilty. Seriously though, what aroma better captures the fragrance of the season?

  • Experience the way American colonists celebrated the holidays as historic Brunswick Town in Winnabow celebrates An 18th Century Christmas from 1 to 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 11.

    Costumed interpreters will offer guided on-the-hour tours of St. Philips Anglican Church and historic Brunswick Town at the annual yuletide event.

    Visitors can also enjoy colonial refreshments in the Brunswick Town Visitor Center, participate in traditional games, and try their hand at making Moravian paper stars and other 18th-century crafts.

  •  If eyes are windows into the soul, then a cat’s whiskers are a telescope into their mind. If you learn to translate the subtle twitches and tucks of cat whiskers, you’ll be one step closer to understanding the feline world. A cat’s whiskers are important indicators of mood, danger detectors and built-in navigational system. What are your cat’s whiskers trying to tell you?

  •  Holidays bring the warm feelings of family relationships renewed, twinkling lights, roasting chestnuts and wrapping paper torn asunder around an evergreen tree cloaked in memories of Christmases past. All that Norman Rockwell imagery may not work for you if you’ve just awakened from a tryptophan-induced coma with the television remote in one hand and the shrill musings of your in-laws reverberating through your gray matter.

  •  Mindful. That’s a term we’ve been hearing more and more regarding lots of things in life, including healthful eating. Living (or eating) mindfully simply means paying attention to the events, activities and thoughts that make up your daily life instead of just operating on autopilot. Mindfulness is taking time to think about the choices you make and doing things on purpose.
