That Was a Marathon!
Heaven knows I've done my share of last minute shopping, wrapping and preparing--in fact, I'm starting this year's duties today! BUT this was the first time my shop worked to FILL these kinds of orders. My cut-off was Noon on Monday because a bit later that afternoon was the cut-off for Priority Mail with Christmas Eve delivery...we hope!! The past two days, since I posted my little Christmas card have been really intense and it was such a relief to finish preparing all those late orders and get them down to the Post Office.
My morning was strange--I had to take the kitten to the vet. Although it had been originally scheduled as a check up & distemper booster, the kitten threw up yesterday morning...and there was a big worm in it. I couldn't believe my eyes, and then I nearly fainted! And since I seemed to recall that fun fact about how "contagious" worms are, I took Mariah along, to the vet, too. She's just too difficult to give meds to and I had a feeling all the cats would be getting a dose of something. Sure enough, they have all been "dosed" now and I've got my "duties" over the next couple of days...I hope this works!
Other fun facts I'll share as the week moves on: more orchids in bloom; they picked the corn fields, finally; and say a little prayer for me because I've got to do my once a year baking thingy. I'm thinking about taking photos because I'm kind of lame in the kitchen--I get roped into these things because I forget how to say "no."
Happy Solstice everyone! That is, Welcome to Winter AND to the days getting longer again! Hooray!
