I’m tired tonight, so there may not be too many witticisms. It’s a good kind of tired, though. Concerts are done and all went exceedingly well. Even the one I was stressing about which was in a never-before-used venue ended well. Gotta hand it to those volunteers. There is no way to do this kind of thing without them.
I’m finished shopping (ok, ok, I have one more gift to order) and I’m getting things wrapped and set up. I had such fun wrapping some gifts today. I had holiday music playing and ribbons, paper and various sparkly thing all around me while I sat splay-legged on the floor. That’s one of my favorite things about wrapping. I sit on the floor. When I’m there, I realize I don’t sit on the floor often enough.
Decorating the house has been– different. I had a bunch of decorations I hadn’t put up in years, so in some ways, it was nice to find them and find new homes for them. But then there are others I look at and think that there is no way I’d ever put them up again. Funny, even though this house has most of the same color theme as the old one, not everything that “worked” in the old house “works” here. It’s almost like I pull something out and the house offers me a perfect visual of where it could go, and if I happen to pull out something the house doesn’t like.. it goes back in the box. I did have a great time decorating the playhouse out back. I’m not finished with that project, but I am for this year. It’s so much fun to look out the window and see the “neighbors” turn their lights on and off.
Another thing I’ve decided this year. I think I’m going to buy one set of LED or SOLAR lights a month. I think next year I should be able to put out my whole outdoor display with only minimal electric pull.
Tomorrow I’m going to get my office together and write out thank you/hoilday cards. Then I have some baking and package mailing to do before my baby comes to visit. I’m really looking forward to seeing her. We have plans to go with Jenny and Megan, Lisa and my sister to the Hack and Slash show. That’s always a hoot. Jenny and I even got matchy-matchy jammies. Hers say Naughty across the chest and have HO HO HO on the pants. Mine says Nice across the chest and my bottoms have heart-shaped candy canes and snowflakes. (it’s ok if you say, Awww!)
I got my gift early from Hubby. He got me a Samsung 10.1 tablet. Now we can officially say we have just about every form factor there is for personal computing. Lol…
Time for a nap. :0)
