What the heck?? So stressed about all this good stuff!!


My Christmas tree is in a bucket of water in the garage, waiting for Emily and me to drag it in.
The house is scented with gingerbread and my Gram's thimble cookies.
Three fruitcakes are nestled snug in their beds, awaiting this year's tasting.
Singing gigs (are they still gigs if you don't get paid, except maybe with dinner?) are ramping up.
Jacquie Lawson's Advent calendar presents a new treat every day.
Kids and grands will soon flood in for Christmas dinner. (OK, maybe flooding is an exaggeration, but there's definitely some bit of exponential multiplying magic thing that happens when exuberant six-and-seven-year-old cousins are reunited.)
Friends and I are heading to Toronto for a couple of concerts, some festive dining, the Toronto Christmas market, and my first ever in-person visit to Wonder Pens. Woo-hoo!

All great stuff, right? So why the frazzle?

I figure there must be others out there who feel this way. Just in case, here's a small gallery of a few of my favourite comical or relaxing tarot images.

Breathe deeply, release your shoulders from where they're tucked up around your ears, and enjoy!

First, a chuckle from the AnnaK Tarot

                                                       Warm friendly purrs from the Cat's Eye Tarot

Mmm, a winter moon ~ Badgers Forest

Inhale...exhale... from the Gaian Tarot

Love the golden glow in the Victorian Fairy Tarot!

This one from the Whimsical Tarot needs no explanation!

Who knew the lengths to which a resourceful two-year-old would go to get his little fingers around a gumdrop on a gingerbread house windowsill? Not me.
