Sewing is done but wrapping is not...I'll finish that today though. Yea! Blessings, Marlene
I have only the biggest of the gifts to wrap and will finish that today before my youngest comes home. (Yeah!)
Still have the wrapping to do (that's tonight's job....after doing the weekly shop at the supermarket!) and still have the house to blitz and make ready for my in-laws Christmas Eve visit as they'll be staying with us this year so not a hair should be out of place.....it's going to be a long 2 days! It will all be worth eat on Saturday night when we're eating our feast (that I'll be preparing all day...) and having one or three glasses of wine! :)
I have to finish a customer quilt tonight, then I can start wrapping. Yes I said Start~ I know I hope I can get it all done. I need that AHHHHHH moment.
Alas, I thought the "Ahhh" moment was here until yesterday afternoon. My Grandma decided to send a check for me to get Christmas gifts for my kids. Ugh. More shopping. Funny -- this year we are a bit short of finances, and it took me significantly longer to get all my shopping done (8 small $1-ish Hanukkah gifts per family member except 3mo baby). But we've been blessed in that others have unexpectedly (without knowing our financial crunch) given us gifts for the kids.
I haven't even started wrapping and we have our gift opening tomorrow night! A number of years ago, (to avoid people having to go to 3 or 4 places on the same day), we started having a special Christmas Eve Eve evening meal and then open the gifts early the net morning. It's always fun and relaxing. Because there are now grandkids and multiple in-laws, we've started to include the gifts into the night time tradition. Even though I have to be ready a day before now, it sure makes the actual holiday relaxing!
A Cup of tea sounds good to me : )
ALL done but waiting for somethings in the mail soon. Not in the spirit. Merry Christmas.
Best advice yet! Tea Is poured, many blessings to you and yours.
sewing done...shopping done...wrapping done...menu done...shopping tomorrow...cooking last minute...Ah...margaritas chilling in the fridge...
Still have a few things to do, but mostly done. Merry Christmas Karen--thank you so much for your wonderful blog. I really enjoy reading your posts.
Everything was fine and moving along right on schedule until this morning the door for my oven broken and I have six loaves of Stolen (gifts for my neighbors) waiting to bake!!! Panic until a local appliance repairman came to the rescue. I love living in a small town.
lol it's not done yet. But I am resting. ;) Got all the stuff out to thaw so I can get some of my Christmas cooking done a little early and wont have to do it all on the same day. MERRY CHRISTMAS to you!!!!
The shopping was all done last week & I just finished the last home-made gift today. Ahhhhhhh!!!
Okay, STOP! TAKE A DEEP BREATH...now start running! You'll make it in time. All will be perfect. HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
I hope you get your AWWWWW moment. Simplify - is the secret.Merry Christmas to you and yours.
NO wrapping here! Last year I started making cloth bags with ribbon to tie them up.I found some not so nice Christmas fabric. Perfect for bags.
Wishing you, your husband and your two gorgeous girls all the best for Christmas and the New Year. Have spent another year really enjoying your cleverness, so thank you so much for sharing. "See" you in 2012! x x
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment...I just love hearing from you!
