I was busy over the weekend, but it was all good. I just wish I had an extra day or two, so that I could have some time to do nothing. But I wish that every Monday ...
The main thing I was able to do was to finish getting all of the gifts wrapped that need to be mailed to their respective recipients.
I have to say that I was especially happy with how the nieces' birthday gifts turned out - just as I had imagined.
Here is the package that contains Greg's Musselburgh Hat. When he first opens the box, this is what he'll see:
I'm way more amused by this than I should be.
Now that packages are wrapped, I can concentrate on really enjoying the decorating. I did a little bit over the weekend, but I never feel like I can really enjoy it until I know that packages are ready to go. Of course, in a Bridget-centric world, there would be time off granted durong the holidays *specifically* for putting up decorations ...
Let's hope this coming week treats us well. We all deserve it.
P.S., particularly to Meredith MC who commented yesterday about the yellow-colored print on my blog, and how hard it was to read. I have to apologize - I had no idea that I had changed the type color in the posts! Thanks for letting me know. I have a feeling that when I was changing the header, and the color of the type in the header, I inadvertently made that change to the posts text. I know I would have discovered it when I went to preview this post, but the sooner it could be fixed, the better, so again, sorry to anyone who thought they were going blind, and thank you so much to Meredith MC for pointing it out right away!
