Here it is. It's Christmas Eve and, unlike the Mister, I'm nowhere near ready for Christmas.
The one gift I think my husband would have possibly really appreciated is still being "processed" in China. Our beautiful velvet custom-made stockings are hanging at the foot of the bed, but are a bit...droopy.
Ho, ho, ho.
It's not that there will be a house filled with family or guests. Apparently, those days ended in Astoria, Oregon, and I'm glad I had the good sense to appreciate the festive days and make the most of the opportunity to be a hostess who showed everybody a great time during those gatherings. I will confess I don't have a perfect score, but pretty darn close to it. You know that saying "You can't please all the people all the time..." For the most part, those holidays in Oregon were pretty magickal. I don't know what happened, but I've come nowhere close to that for some time and nobody in Texas could possibly believe I ever had Martha Stewart mojo. But I did!
Anyway, I guess for now I can wish everyone joy and hope I get my stuff together better next holiday season.
It's a good thing my husband is so accomplished at accomplishing and has his Santa going on, huh?!
For now, I'm just sending my wishes around the world for Peace On Earth, etc.
Fa la la la lah.
