the holiday

I have a nice stretch off over Thanksgiving (Wednesday-Sunday), so I’ve been getting my store ramped up for the the Christmas shopping season–making some new items, remaking some old ones.

This was my year to host Thanksgiving, so I scheduled Wednesday off, but my mom wanted to swap Christmas Eve (which she usually hosts) for Thanksgiving. So, I got a free day to do whatever because I didn’t have to do any cooking (besides the rolls I took to dinner yesterday).

I have been getting a lot done Christmas-wise–my Christmas cards will be ready to mail as of today, I have most of my holiday shopping figured out (and plan to complete it this weekend), and a dog cookie baking frenzy is scheduled for Sunday. Ahh, time off. If I was retired, I still wouldn’t have enough time to accomplish everything.
