The Christmas Hare
December 21, 2010 § 4 Comments
We all know the story of the Tortoise and the Hare, right?
Well, it looks like I got a bit cocky about how far ahead of the game I was and now I’m panicking because there’s only two days left until Christmas Eve. What happened to my three whole weeks?
Though the majority of shopping, wrapping and meal planning is done, I have only two days to finish the rest before my Dad comes over on Friday. I still have to do a top to bottom clean of the house, pick up the groceries for our planned meals, do some shopping for fiddly bits, wrap up the fiddly bits and bake my pies and strudel for dessert. I’m not including the cooking I have to do on Saturday, which starts with a ham and cheese strata for breakfast and a Roast Beast feast for dinner.
(Oh, we rented another car because we haven’t found a suitable used car for me and there’s just too much to do to expect Hubby to do all the running around and still go to work.)
Yes folks, I’m feeling a little bit of that ol’ holiday stress but today I got something in the mail that cheered me right up…
My good friend Cate @ Moments of Whimsy sent me this lovely Christmas card and a whole lot of cheer, by way of colourful, whimsical and sparkly bits that fell into my lap. It made me smile very big and reminded me of the true spirit of the season…which is giving.
