I was organized and I had a plan. That in itself was like a minor Christmas miracle.
I took Mom to her Adult Day Care program and came back and grabbed Auntie and we headed out to tackle THE LIST. I was like the Energizer Bunny - I just kept going and going and going.
And conveniently near lunch time we ended up near Bella's Cafe, so I convinced Auntie to buy me lunch. (Convenient or a devious plan on my part ? Hmmmm) We had a lovely lunch and patted ourselves on the back a lot for all that we had accomplished so far.
We continued shopping until 1:30 pm and then I dropped her at home and she wrapped and bagged and I delivered. This took the rest of the afternoon. As soon as I finish this post I have to go to the grocery store - - - That's it. I think I'm done. Maybe I shouldn't say it out loud just in case. But I "think" I have thought of everything.
If I'm right (please, please, please) then all that will be left to do tomorrow is have my annual pre-Christmas lunch date with friends at the tavern.
So my dear friends, it appears as if my goal of not visiting any stores on Dec. 24 is going to happen. A first for me. I think I feel some of that holiday "zen" happening.
I'll close with a picture of my last hooking project. I don't think I ever showed the finshed product. I delivered it to its recipient this morning. I hope she likes it.
I hope you all get that last burst of "energizer bunny"
and experience a little holiday zen.
