Eight Days and Counting! 12/18/09

So much to do and so little time left.  This is not a “real” post, but just a note to say I’m taking a long weekend to try and tie up all the loose ends before Christmas. I have grocery shopping to do, a guest bedroom to get ready for Jason & Blair, and I have GOT  to find Ted some last-minute SECRET gifts. Even though we swear to each other every Christmas we won’t go over our set limit, there has never been a Christmas yet we’ve kept that promise.  And even though this year we promised each other THREE TIMES that the “limit” was the limit, I happen to know Ted asked Jill to get me a surprise from the Christmas Bazaar on Mackinac Island while she was there.  And it wasn’t Jill who let the cat out of the bag – it was TED!  My husband couldn’t keep a secret if his life depended on it!  But that’s ok. It’s usually those silly little “secret” gifts that mean the most each year.

We have more rain coming in tonight, and it’s supposed to last all day tomorrow.  If it clears out by Saturday, we plan to go across the lake to see the Christmas boat parade. Residents have decorated their boats and docks with Christmas lights.  The boats will parade in front of a group of judges, then go up the river to the Lake Blackshear Retreat Marina, so everyone can gather in one place to see them.  If the weather cooperates, I hope to get over there for pictures Saturday night.

Hope you all have a great weekend finishing up your loose ends. I’ll see you back here Monday morning, good Lord willing.  Stay safe, and God bless.

This was last year, right after wrapping the last gift. I thought that last bow HAD to go somewhere!



  1. Have a great weekend Brenda. Merry Christmas.
