advent evening 20: not a creature was stirring . . .

5 more days.

tomorrow the wrapping begins for gifts to be shipped.
i am in no hurry to get to the others.

can you tell?



  1. Waaaah!! ;-D LOVE the socks! You're Cindy-Lou Who, you are!!

  2. OH no you are one of those! Help! I went to the post office this morning and the line was out the door. I had one small order to ship, but decided to wait until tomorrow as early as possible. I love the socks, I wanted some striped socks but found snowflakes and tiger patterns instead.

  3. i went to the post office twice today. the first time i couldn't even find a place to park. the second time i parked where it said "no parking" and then waited in line 20 minutes.

    thank goodness i have everything else christmas related done....

    well at least sitting here tonight i think i do. tomorrow could be a whole new "now what did i forget" day....

    i love your socks :)

  4. as i read this, it is 4 more days, and holy cow, that sets in a small panic. i'd rather be lounging in striped socks. :)


  5. Oh that reminds me -- I've got to get down to Petco this week and get Kitty a brand new blue litter box. I've always believed that it's the thought that counts...

  6. hahahahahaha... loving me those socks, all cindy lou who and pippi longstocking in one!

  7. LOVE those socks! I have a sock fetish!

    Don't be in a hurry, and don't feel bad about it in the least. You are finding so much beauty and magic in the season, and it's harder to do that when you're rushing around. Enjoy sitting around in your amazing socks. =D

    Happiest of holidays to you!
