Just got in from some last minute shopping. Only a few odds and ends. It actually felt good to wander about the stores with not a trace of frenzy. So I shall sit here awhile and play a few games while I sip my coffee and indulge in a Russian Tea Cake or two.
Then I must start the filling of the stockings! My girls still get a stocking all filled with what grown-up girls want and need. They still delight in finding the strange items I have found over the year. My favorite part is finding items that will make them smile and tug at their heart strings. It makes the holiday for me. One thing we all try and remember, are the stories that go with what we have found. And I have a couple this year from members of Ebay. They were my own personal Christmas elves. :)
The neighbor cat sure looks cozy. She has adopted us for the times that her family is not home. We do not mind at all. We feed her, let her sleep and give her free rein. Her name is Bessie. And she keeps me company while my 14 year old cat does alot of sleeping.
Break is over and I must fly! I hope everyone's plans are going the way they should. Tomorrow I start cooking, so I better get going. Always, Kit
