Christmas Eve Eve

T'was 2 nights before Christmas,
when all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring,
Not even an idiot cat...


(That huge box was delivered yesterday, from my Mother, hee hee!)


The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St. Nicholas

would soon be there....

(Oh...I guess we forgot to hang stockings this year....oh well...)

Me and Blaine were nestled all snug in our beds,
While visions of sugarplums danced in our heads....

(Okay, I don't remember wrapping any sugarplums. But there's the wrapping station---and the two presents there are the ones we're contributing to the "gift pot" for the ridiculously stupid "White Elephant" game with presents that the family has decided to do on Christmas day after dinner. I bought a reversible Sherpa throw from Macy's and Blaine bought an air popcorn maker from Bed Bath and Beyond...)

And yadee yadee yadah,

I was up getting a drink of water and,

to my utter mortification,

Santa Clause came down the chimney

and hid Blaine's present

behind the clutter at my "knitting station"!

(The blue box with silver bow in the back).

And then I thought, what the hell is he doing here the night before Christmas Eve? Maybe he needs two nights to deliver all the presents these days....

(I put a tote bag over Blaine's present so he can't see it....)

And yadee yadee yadah,
but there's the yarn I bought
with my gift certificate from my mother.

It's Malabrigo Worsted, colorway "Snow Bird". (I'm making myself a sweater out of this luscious yarn.)

Where Was I?

Oh yes, 2 nights before Christmas and Santa Claus is in my living room....

Anyhoo, all of sudden
Santa flew back up the chimney
(and I hope his butt
wasn't burned by the fire there....)
And I could hear him
up on the roof getting ready to take off.
And then I heard him yell:


"Now Dasher! Now Dancer! Now Prancer and Vixen!
On, Comet! On, Cupid! On Donner and Blitzen!

Yadee yadee yadah, I can't wait till Christmas!

Now, I need to inform you of a matter of importance. It's that of you being entitled to one wish on the Christmas Tree. All you have to do is wait till Christmas Eve and then you wish on your Christmas Tree. Most of mine have always come true. So don't forget!

I finished the last of my Christmas knitting for the grandkids Christmas morning, but I finished the last Christmas give this week - a shawl for my mil who has dementia. I know she will appreciate the work that went into it, as a former knitter herself (that is a sore point with me, but at 1,500 miles away & unemployed, I can't change it right now).

I think it was a lovely gesture Cindy---and I think it was just the perfect gift!
