I have today & tomorrow off from work. My grand plan was to clean & donate toys. We've added about a thousand toys to this house in a week's period. We've taken nothing out of the house. I feel like cars, pirates, building supplies are forming an army & will soon take over. But what have I been doing on my Cleaning Day? Finishing Christmas gifts, Flickr, & playing Super Mario Bros. on the Wii. Fan-fucking-tastic.
I'd like to think that tomorrow you'll find me elbow deep in broken toys, but I'm afraid that won't be true. Here's a sample of my Christmas booty. I'm spoiled by my loved ones. You give my MIL a list & she fills it! I'll be fair, SK added about half the books. Tonight, you'll find me making Red Wine & Cheese bread. Dreaming of the chunky cable cardigan from "Men's Knits" & snuggled up on the couch reading "Within the Frame." I'm sure I'll be doing all of this while listening to the sounds of Mario trying to save the Princess.
I can hear some of you saying, "Why were you finishing Christmas gifts today?" I finished these a long time ago, but waited until the last minute to felt them.
Tsk. Tsk. They didn't felt small enough. I tried everything. Now they're part of our Halloween box. I ran out to our LYS & went with my ever faithful Cascade 220. And guess what?! The shit felted like a dream. Why do I stray? Granted, they look like the Pup has been nuzzling them for the past ten years, but I think the recipient will like them just how they are.
*And yes, I fell victim to the nuttiness of Bench Mondays on Flickr.*
I hope Santa was good to all of you. He sure was to us.
