|Obligatory Christmas photo|
Over the next couple of days, I'll be in the kitchen baking a thousand batches of cookies. Okay, maybe not quite one thousand but enough so that it will feel like one thousand by the time I'm done. Sorry. Don't mean for that to sound so whiny. I enjoy doing it, I just don't enjoy anticipating doing it. Once I'm elbow deep in dough, I'll be a happy little Christmas clam.
Or at least, I'll be a happy little Christmas clam as long as I don't look at my to-do list. I have a count down to Christmas decoration thing on my desk and apparently, it had been a few days since I changed it. I'll admit - I'm Horrible with a capital H about changing it each day. Anyway, this morning, I thought I better make sure it was accurate.... and somehow, I went from having 13 days to prepare for Christmas to only 8 days. Yikes. Eight days to Christmas! Double Yikes!
I'm now officially in Christmas Panic mode. I mean, like, Serious Christmas Panic mode. This may be the last blog post until after Christmas. I hope not, because I'm so close to finishing my Strickplaner book cover and I'm pretty excited about it. I'm dying to show it to you. And that cowl that I frogged last week and restarted is almost done. I'm super happy with it too and want to show it off. But....
But Christmas Panic mode! I think the blog probably needs to take a back seat to decorating the tree (it's been up and partially decorated for two weeks!) and shopping for the kids. And Santa would probably appreciate it if we were all wearing clean underwear on Christmas morning. And since I've been knitting book covers and cowls instead of doing the housework, the dust bunnies are starting to grow teeth. And every surface in the kitchen has a fine layer of powdered sugar on it. And I tried to wrap a gift the other day and discovered we have no ribbon. No ribbon at all! And the dog has developed a weird smell. And the Christmas lights are only working on one side of our house. And.... So yeah, I think the blog is the least of my worries right now. Probably no more blog posts before Christmas.
I hope your season of merriment is going a little smoother than mine. Please use the button thingy below to share a link to what you're making. It is, after all, Makers' Monday (even if all I'm making is a big, giant mess.)
