These days, I can wake up super early, starving, and have to go make some tea and something to eat. It's those hours in the early morning when I wake up and can't go back to sleep...That was the case Wednesday morning, so I started this...only to finish tonight.
(There's a reason there aren't any Christmas presents under the tree. hehe...)
Our Christmas cards came, but sadly we were a bit disappointed that the print job wasn't what we expected. They turned out so much darker and as if the red seeped and spilled into all the other parts of the card.
But oh well! We're sending them nevertheless.
This ^ was what is should have looked like. Snowy:)
For our family gathering, here on this side of the state, we're doing a white elephant gift exchange! Earlier, Peter and I went scouting as to what to get...it's just so hard when there's so many things you'd like to get but have a price limit. Which makes sense 'cause it's way easy to get carried away.
I had fun wrapping mine. It was like being a kid again! Cutting paper snowflakes and scrunching up the wrapping!
I like cookie cutters so I had to tie a snowflake cookie cutter on, as a little extra.
This basket is filled with some goodies for my family in Spokane.
I hope it snows there, by the time we come. A lot! Tomorrow is supposed to snow here in Seattle, but who knows. Last time it was supposed to snow, it didn't.
I have two more days of work left. It will be very interesting to wake up and not have to go to work. One day, another, on and on... It'll be something I haven't done in a long time. Not work. I've been working since I was 15, at times having two jobs of various sorts, so this will be the longest stretch of time of not having to 'go to' a job.
But soon enough, there will be another kind of job...a very important one in fact;)
And eventually, I'll be back at work a day or two:)
For now, I'll go make myself a cup of hot chocolate and have one of the chocolates Peter brought for me.
