So very much remains undone, and most of it will continue so. I'm not going to be able to make the dog and kitty treats for the pet owners in my gift-giving circle. Not going to be able to bake for the neighbors. Didn't have a chance to conjure up something handmade for my co-workers. Totally forgot to put together something for the mailman. My kitchen is a bit of a mess, and the floor wants a proper mopping. There are still gifts to be wrapped, and there are gifts that have not yet arrived . There's a gift I meant to order for my sweetie but completely forgot.
It's an early morning again tomorrow. I had intended to take a kickboxing class, but we have to be on the road fairly early. fmeh.
Still, most of my house is clean and in decent order. I'm caught up with laundry. The kitties are being particularly lovely and/or adorable. The shrimp bruschetta (for tomorrow) is mostly prepped; the chocolate ricotta icebox pie (for Friday) is assembled. There's a fire in the wood stove. I have a glass of wine at my left hand, a purring one-eyed kitten at my right (update: she's shifted her enthusiastic attentions to container that holds rolls of wrapping paper). My Christmas tree is quite fat and very sparkly and largely populated by superheroes. My sweetie is home, safe and sound.
All may yet be very well.
