Bit by Bit

Step 1 as of 12-10-13I have been working on Celtic Solstice, a little.  This is where I was this morning and since then I have added about thrice as many and started using the different purples.  I am still working on Step 1 but will be checking out Step 2 tomorrow, just prior to Step 3 coming out on Friday. 

I have a really good excuse for falling so far behind.  Saturday we had a great time at the Trans Siberian Orchestra concert.  Oh, my, what a fun experience.  Then early Sunday morning I woke up “not well.”  Getting over that has taken a while but mostly it has taken some days to begin to regain/sustain strength.  This is not the first time I have experienced this but it is so annoying to be slowed down when I really want to be up and going.  The up side?  I wasn’t hungry and seem to have an aversion to sugar, for the time being.  Wouldn’t it be nice if was a permanent “problem”?  Flirt male

sending gifts wrappedI spent most of yesterday  wrapping Christmas gifts, the ones that are being mailed (see, I am behind in this area, also).  And one package is even ready for mailing.  I seem to have run out of boxes so these will have to get sent tomorrow.

kitchen wrapping stationThis is my wrapping station which still has to be available for local gift wrapping.  Did I ever mention how much I don’t like wrapping gifts?  I love making gifts, shopping for them, and buying them, but wrapping them?  Not so much.       Oh, I do like opening them when they are given to me.  Embarrassed smile

happy quilt puppies
And what do good puppies do while Mom is wrapping gifts?  Why they sack out on the big flannel quilt, of course. 

Now, I’m off to bed to get a good rest so I can get something accomplished tomorrow.

I love the picture in your header! It brings back fun memories of our DD's first Christmas.

Like you I hate wrapping gifts. I'm trying to train DD so she can share the load and make it a faster operation.
