Et c’est parti!

My tree is up, the lights are on and knick-knacks have been spread around to reflect this happy time of year. I just love it. Everything is so bright and colourful. It’s purdy.

I don’t really enjoy the fact that there are boxes everywhere and the house is a mess, but once those suckers will be out of the way, when my most devoted beloved husband bring them back to our storage location, our little condo will be festive. Yay.

To make matters even better we had a little snow yesterday. They’re announcing a storm for tomorrow. Time will tell. Today is a beautiful winter day in Montreal. The air is crisp, the sky is blue and the ground is white (where it’s still covered).

Yesterday I was at a client who came by to drop some papers on my desk, when I noticed he had glitters in his beard. He received our corporate Christmas card. Darn, those glitters won’t quit!

The parcels I’ve sent to the States have crossed the border. Yippee! Santa Paws is on its way to you! Yeah, you! Hope you’re ready for it.

Speaking of being ready, I believe the participants in our Santa Paws Merely Gift Exchange have been busy creating and will soon ship, if not already done. Wouldn’t want someone to not receive their gift in time for Christmas, now would we?

For those of you who'd like to know, the Japanese Drums were amazing; the encounter with the neurologist went well (one more test to do next week); and my party & cake were a success. So in all, it's been busy but good around here. The madness of the Season has begun, that's for sure!

"It's purdy."

I like that. And I like that you enjoy Christmas and the season—if it doesn't snow too much.

"So in all, it's been busy but good around here."

I don't think you can say it any better than that.

if glitters quit, we wouldn't love them so.

You sound so happy! Happy and festive!!

We received some snow yesterday too!

It all sounds great! I wish my tree was decorated and all the boxes put away. Hopefully this weekend. I want some snow!

The Santa Paws gift will be completed and on its way this weekend. I don't want to cut it too close.

Ah, I love the shunkly lights of xmas!

My Santa Paws gift is all done and sent off, v excited about what the recipient thinks about it *wink*

I am closing in on the time when I can begin to make my Santa Paws gift. It may take a few tries to get it right, but if all goes well it shall be yummy. (and yes, that cold shiver you felt up your spine means Marius is going to try to cook something)

I'm glad I can experience the holiday season vicariously through you! Unfortunately, this is the worst time of year for me but I have resolved to finally buy a lightbox. I will enjoy the holidays and winter once again, damn it! LOL

Glitter in the beard, I love it!

I am going to be shipping my gift, hopefully next week. I never thought about international stuff! ARGH! Perhaps I'll send something quick and then the actual present to come later? Is that cheating? I hope not.

I'm not feeling like it's Christmas yet. Not in a "bah, humbug" way, but it just feels so early yet. This year went by so fast. I think I'll get a tree this week, though, so that might make the difference.

Charlie: This is my favorite time of year, for sure, between the snow and lights everywhere, I can't help but think it's all puuurdy... the cat in me surely purrs. ;-)

kara: Very true.

GEM: I am - I just love Christmas time!

LeeAnn: Have fun putting your tree up, and completing/shipping your Santa Paws gift.

Pigeon: I'm sure the recipient will love it. I know I would! ;-)

Marius: I'm not worried, I'm sure it will be good. (she types, as she wraps herself in her sweater, man, those shivers...)

Barb: The lightbox seems to help me, give it a try. At worst it can only hurt your budget :-/

greenduckies: It was a funny sight, for sure.

If you're shipping late and abroad, it takes a while, just so you know...

flurrious: It did make a difference for me, that's for sure. You're right (once again) the year flew by!

Glad things with the neurologist went well.

I love glitter.

My verification word is kinda naughty: forpli.
