Good Evening Everyone!
Are you as overwhelmed as I am? I have ten days to
get my Christmas act together, and things are
not going too well around here. I haven't put
a dent in my shopping (with the exception of
Avery of course), the tree is on the back porch
(not in the house), and not a single decoration is
in place. I do have a beautiful boxwood wreath on
my front door, due to the generosity of my dear
friend Ethel. We always have a massive wreath covered
with tiny white lights hanging from a huge
tree in our front yard. I replaced all the lights last year
because many were not working. Well, guess what --
plugged it in this afternoon and two strands are not
working. What a pain!! All of the strands have to come off
and the bad ones replaced. I have said many, many bad
words over the years due to Christmas lights.
They drive me crazy.
I'm trying to be optimistic that tomorrow will be a very
productive day and my "Merriness" will return.
Our last day to ship will be Friday,
December 16th. I know I should have
announced this sooner, but time just got
away from me. Faye and I will be taking a
much needed Christmas break. I need time to
get ready to spend time with one of the
reasons for my "Merriness".
Many Merry Stitches,
