But I'm joining in with Amy at Love Made My Home and hoping for the best.
The First is that we got our family Christmas presents mailed yesterday. It cost so much I'm assuming they'll be hand delivered by a messenger, dressed in 24kt. gold, driving a solid gold cadillac.
The Second is that we got our Christmas tree yesterday. We always get a real one, I love the smell of it in the house. We use to get huge ones, but as I've shrunk so have my trees. Miss Kitty and I have been trimming it, but it's still not done, maybe by tomorrow. I don't use glass ornaments, all of mine are of resin, so it they break at least they don't shatter. Mac always ties the tree to the wall. Miss Kitty has never climbed our tree, though she was up the ladder today looking at it longingly, but in the past we've had cats who felt honor bound to climb it, play with the ornaments and nestle in the branches.
The Third is that most of the Christmas critters have made it out of the closet and are in front of the fireplace. We almost never have a fire in this one, we only use this room at Christmas time and it's usually too warm for a fire. But the Christmas critters like it, so that's fine with them.
The Fourth is that all the supplies for making cookies and gingerbread people have been purchased. I don't make a lot of cookies, Mac calls them fat pills and limits my output. I've also gotten the ingredients to make our pumpkin pie; use to just buy them, but a couple of years ago my inner Martha Stewart talked me into baking my own.
The Fifth is that I haven't gotten my Christmas cards made out yet and that's my job for this afternoon.
That's my Five, hope you all have a great weekend.
