Two More Sleeps

What, Wednesday again? Not only is it Wednesday, it’s Christmas Eve Eve. If you read last week’s post, you might be wondering how far I have progressed in my Christmas preparations. I would like to be able to say that everything is done and all I have to do now is sit around and drink eggnog, but that would be a big, fat lie. Not the eggnog part; I do have eggnog in the house, but I am not sitting around drinking it. I drank some earlier today as I was wrapping presents. I also drank some as I was baking cookies.

Don’t worry; the cookies are fine. I don’t like alcohol in my eggnog. I like calories, lots of calories. As you can imagine, I’m having a little trouble managing regular meals. I’m not sure how long one can live on cookies and eggnog, but I’m hoping it’s more than a couple of days. I just need to get through a couple more days.

My cookies are done and the ones that I made for folks outside my immediate family have been delivered. My tree is completely decorated and makes me feel happy every time I look at it. The family taffy pull was this past Saturday and the weather was perfect – sunny and cold with low humidity. Taffy making demands low humidity and we usually have to create it artificially by turning on the air conditioner, but not this year. This year there has been only one cold day in North Florida in December and it came exactly when we needed it.

If it weren’t for wrapping, I would be in great shape. Wrapping is what I should be doing now, instead of writing, but I’ve kept my Wednesday blog post commitment all year and I’m not going to let it slide the last half of December. I can still get up before dawn and wrap all day tomorrow, right?

I need to get back to wrapping.

I need to get back to wrapping.

Right. Merry Christmas, everyone. Peace, love and light to you. I’ll see you on the other side.

    Merry Christmas! Sorry I missed you today–I hope my mom remembered to put everything in your mailbox. 😊 I still need to wrap, too, and discovered this evening that the kids have been using my last roll of tape. 😬 So you can guess where Thomas is going at the last minute tonight…

      That mailbox is adorable and those truffles are to die for. I haven’t tried the muffins yet, but I’m sure they are wonderful, too. I hope you have tape now. I still have a lot if wrapping to do and one more thing to buy, not counting groceries. I fear a marathon wrapping session is in my near future. I’ll probably still be at it when the annual marathon of “A Christmas Story” begins. 🎄
