The Whirl of the Season

It has begun here in the center of the midwest — the whirl of the season.

So what have I been up to?  Shopping and wrapping and mailing off decorations, gifties, and goodies to Iraq.  Soldier Daughter’s gifties are done, wrapped, and on the way.  I still have some baking to do and two more soldier boxes — which I will complete this weekend.   Then I can concentrate on the local gifties.  Fashionista Daughter is beginning to feel a bit left out.

I have sadly done no recent knitting, reading, or cooking.

I played Christmas music for 3 hours on Sunday night for a VIP event for a local department store.  Each of the band members received a $150 store credit, which is nice.  I saw a dressy blouse I would like to purchase to wear to my office Christmas party.  Fashionista Daughter worked on the catering end of the event — walking around with trays of truffles and cheesecake bites — and received a $50 store credit for her part.

We have gotten our decorations up.  We’ve been drinking lots of coffee and making our lists and checking them twice.

I did finish knitting the garter stitch shrug for Fashionista Daughter.  Now I need to be home long enough to sew it up and weave in the ends — perhaps over the weekend when I finish my baking.

Today I ordered something online for my WW Coffee Swap pal.  And I have purchased some coffee.  And I will have Fashionista Daughter pick up a couple of goodies from our favorite Lebanese deli/grocery to put in the box.  There are just so many possibilities of what to send — it makes my head spin!
