Are You Done Yet?

I wonder how many of you are all done shopping and preparing. Or how many are last minute people. Does the house smell of Christmas cookies?

Rita has had a few vacation days, and has come over on each one to bring in my mail for me and anything else that is necessary. Today she even shoveled a little snow from my back door and down the ramp. The sun has been shining brightly, and it looks as if the car is almost cleared off, so it is entirely possible that I might actually get out of the house some time soon.

The other night, Lisa brought me a beautiful white poinsettia, sprayed in gold. And today my landlord came by with a huge red one. He is the best landlord ever! And so thoughtful.

Rita will be here for Christmas Day, and I'm sure Joe will come by too. The other two will call, or I will call them. I will see Lisa either Christmas Eve or Christmas Day. It is a quiet day around here. And immediately after, I'm sure there will be lots of pictures to view on Flickr - maybe a few short videos too. Kitty has posted just a little recently, after a very long hiatus. Maybe she'll even do a post on Isaac's Christmas. That would be fun

I doubt you will hear from me again until at least the day after - well, except for wishes.

Whatever your plans and wherever you find yourselves, I wish you joy and love and peace.

Hi Bobbie!
We're doing simple this year and I already have the turkey. And what a great landlord! Wow! never heard of that before! I know it's hard to be housebound, but do take care.

Wishing you and yours a most beautiful and wonderful Christmas! Peace and joy and love!

Beautiful poinsettias! And I love the Santa next to the red one. You're lucky to have a great landlord and neighbor. :) I've been cooking all day as I'm hosting Christmas dinner. I still have more cooking and baking to do for Christmas day and a few gifts to wrap. There's always something last minute that needs to be done. :)

I hope you can make it out of the house soon! In the meantime, enjoy this beautiful season. I wish you much peace and joy--during the holidays and throughout the New Year. said...

I'm not ready! & it's hours away, but it's OK. I am enjoying it all.
