My Advent Calendar.....8, 9, 10, 11 & 12 !



Incredible but yes I let 5 days pass by without posting my advent calendar.....
oh la la..I've been bad but too busy also may be...

 December 8, 9, 10, 11 & 12......
5 little boxes to open with a message inside....


On saturday morning, I woke up early to participate to a Christmas market, near the coast
(see my last post) and the quote that day made me smile:

Make a list of important things to do today. At the top of your list, put eat chocolate.
Now you'll get at least one thing done today. (Gina Hays)

Actually,  I did a lot of things that day except eating chocolate !

On sunday morning, I went back to the same Christmas market. The quote that day was :

I have found that if you love life, life will love you back. Arthur Rubinstein.

On monday morning, I got a translation assignment due for this coming friday
and the quote of the day was :

Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Mother Teresa

On tuesday, I spent nearly the whole day translating and avoiding eating chocolate
and I loved the quote of the day:

A bird doesn't sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song. Maya Angelou

And today, I'm still translating, still avoiding to eat chocolate and interrupted my work
only to visit a musician friend and the quote of the day was :

Be helpful. When you see a person without a smile, give them yours. Zig Ziglar.

In short....Viva la vida !

Love all those quotes! They're all great and fitting for everyday live - just need to remember them more often. Your advent calendar is such a lovely idea, maybe I can do one like that when Dylan is older one day. For now, he'd expect chocolate ;-) Hope you're well and Christmas preparations are not stressing you out! Bisous xo
