Actually its more of a "shower" of activity because we are still having rain. Seems strange with no snow at all. Almost more like early Spring than Christmas.
I have hardly stopped for more than 10 minutes since Tuesday night. I have been finishing the shopping and am still delivering gifts. Last night I delivered the gifts for Mom's friends, and of course that also means having a little visit at each place. It took all night. While I enjoyed all the visits, it made me a little sad that Mom isn't able to do it anymore.
This is a picture of my bed this evening. These are gifts left to be wrapped.
This afternoon I had a nice treat. Our former engineer at work retired a couple of years ago. He and his wife are the loveliest people. This morning he called me and invited me and his former secretary over to his house. His invitation was "I have a lot of rum and a little egg nog - would you like to come visit this afternoon?" LOL So we spent a hour or two at their home. It was great to catch up and when we were leaving he had a flowering plant for each of us.

I almost forgot - another good thing today. I got a text message from my boss this morning. It simply read "IPAD!!!!" He is a technology fanatic like me. He had just bought himself one. So, half jokingly, I replied back that perhaps now he would sell me his Kindle. I wanted one for Christmas but waited too long to order (9 week delivery to Canada). He has only had it since summer so it is almost new. He replied back almost immediately Yes. So tomorrow he is leaving it on my desk at work for me to try for a few days and then if I like it he will sell it to me at a "greatly reduced price"! hahaha
Anyway, I better go get back and tackle that mess on my bed. Wish me luck - the countdown is on!
