I’m beginning to be a little panicky with chores and Christmas tasks. Shopping is pretty easy this year. I’ve already ordered on-line the couple of presents I needed to get and they should arrive any day now. I have a couple of others to get but there’s no rush. We got the tree on Sunday, and the folks out at the State Farmers Market knocked $20 off a tall tree just to get rid of it. We have it all ready to decorate, but everyone has been so tired that we are putting it off until tomorrow. I sent the remaining Christmas cards out today.
I am still working on that bathroom project. I got halfway through with hanging the wallpaper today and couldn’t bear to be inside when outside it was 73 degrees. I know you are not supposed to stop midway, but I did and went outside into the warm fresh air and the leaves called me over to rake them. And what is the wisdom of this meandering, dear gentle reader? I suppose it is that work will always be there waiting. A soft, warm afternoon in December won’t.
