It only takes a few hours, but sometimes it can drag on a wee bit longer - because let's face it -we are not an "all work and no play" family. There's corgis to play with, eggnog to sip and hugs to be had at any given moment - distractions abound. But we did get the job done - in plenty of time to have dinner, clean up, and get back outside before dark.
Here's a picture of Tobie for a change - because, where was Gizmo? He was out back rolling around in the mud. Very naughty corgi. It was bath day anyway - so both corgis enjoyed a luxurious bubble bath in the sink in the garage - before entering for Thanksgiving dinner.
Trans Siberian Orchestra - and we loved it. So we're going again tonight. A nice way to take a deep breath before all the craziness begins. (If your not familiar with TSO - they are really something special. Let me put it this way - they play Metallica - so to hear this particular "type" of orchestra play a Christmas Canon - it's pretty cool.)
Tomorrow I will wake up and it will only be 22 days until Christmas. I better get in gear for there are still have cards to write, a tree to buy, cookies to bake, a quilt to finish quilting, pj bottoms to sew, a scarf to finnish knitting, and those socks - well, they may have to wait until Valentine's Day to get those socks!
But that's ok - because tonight... I'm looking forward to the company of my husband, a pomegranet martini, some shrimp cocktail, maybe a little steak and the Trans Siberian Orchestra! Now go get started on YOUR to do list. Remember - only 23 more days!
