I am sure looking forward to playing post-holiday catch up with all of my great blogging friends. Just like everyone else I'm sure, my unread blog count has gone sky high, and all that's kept it from going astronomical is that everyone is in the same boat as I! I couldn't even tell you what my count is cuz I haven't even looked today, and I'm probably not going to this week. I hate it, but that's just how it is.
Where am I in my Christmas prep? Well, today I was able to do some Christmas shopping. One more day and I think I'll have it finished. Most of my cards are in the mail - hurray! Sunday afternoon was my guild luncheon/ornament exchange. I stitched up a Tokens and Trifles paper ornament which turned out really nice, but I didn't get a picture of it - argh! Sunday evening was our church children's Christmas program, featuring my three youngest children. They performed a play that we've done several times over the years, but it's a favorite with some lovely songs, and lots of humor provided by the youngest children especially.
Well, I really should clear off my cutting table so I can wrap some gifts - especially while Kirsten is away playing at her friend's house! She's been so disappointed to wake up each morning and find there are no gifts under the tree yet. She doesn't realize that for years I never put out presents until late late late Christmas Eve! There was usually a little baby/toddler/child around who didn't need the extra temptation. Just keeping the tree upright was an accomplishment, lol!
I hope you have Christmas better in hand than I do and are enjoying some relaxing evenings with your stitching and perhaps a cup of tea.
