Merry Christmas, Y'all!

Once again, I've waited until the last minute to do everything I need to do for Christmas. The gifts have been purchased but not yet wrapped, because I didn't have all the Christmas giftwrap paper I thought I did. (I vaguely remember throwing out several rolls of it when I cleaned and reorganized my hall closet last Spring. It seemed like a good idea at the time.)

Today was serious-house-cleaning day. My feet and knees won't hold out for housework and shopping on the same day, so I'll go early tomorrow to scrounge up some giftwrap paper and enough ingredients to make the dip I'll take to my daughter's house on Christmas Day.

To those of you who are way more organized than I am, my fur-trimmed, red hat's off to you. I wish you a wonderful Christmas!

And to those of you who are still scrambling, like me, I assume you won't be reading this until at least two or three days from now. I hope your Christmas was really great, too.


  1. Merry Christmas to you and your family!

  2. Velvet, have a Blessed Christmas!

  3. Have a very Merry Xmas, Velevt, and a great New Year. Don't have too much dip! ;)

  4. Hi Velvet,

    Merry wishes that you get eveything done and have time to rest and refresh too.

    I think YOU'RE a wonderful gift - and I bet all your family and friends agree.


  5. Merry Christmas! I am wondering about the peacocks...are they still visiting you?

  6. Merry Christmas to you, Butch and Kadi! I hope you post photos of what Santa brought them!

  7. Merry Christmas to you Velvet...Reading your blog is a Joy each day...

  8. Velvet, hope you have a lovely holiday. Love the sign...especially the "Jesus is the reason for the season"'s one of my favorites. Rates right up there with "Santa never died for anyone". Eat, drink and be merry, Velvet - you've earned it!

  9. i hope you have a good day at your daughter.

  10. Merry Christmas to you too, VS.

  11. Very organized. And reading this on Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas to you, VS. All the best... now and in the new year. Alison/DS

  12. Well, I actually wrote a comment when you first posted this - but blogger ate my comment! I hate when that happens! I was organized and on schedule - but didn't have THAT much extra time to rewrite!

    i wanted to thank you for all your wonderful posts about your family memories - always warm - and your daily experiences - always entertaining. I also appreciate all your encouragement as I started my baby blog :-)

    Wishing you and yours a blessed Christmas with good health (no painful feet in 2007!) and much joy in the new year.
