Monday Rambles

December 3, 2012 Miscellaneous 10

What a weekend. So busy with Christmas play dress rehearsal, Christmas play at church, trying to get a decent picture of my two rambunctious little ones for Christmas presents and cards, Christmas, Christmas, Christmas. And ugh, we have 21 more days of this.

Bah. Humbug.

Not really. As much as I love to grumble, I love this holiday dearly. Between carting the kids from here to there, I managed to do a bit of decorating. Made a few ornaments. Worked on Christmas presents. Designed our Christmas card. Did some shopping. Cleaned up the house, did a wee bit of laundry, and got in some snuggle time.

Yes, even snuggle time can be work. Whew! I’m ready to go back to work so I can get a break!

Needless to say, I didn’t get ANY reading done. And I am SO BEHIND on The Count of Monte Cristo. I downloaded the audio book read by David Case (is he good? I’ve never listened to anything read by him.) and am officially switching over to it today. Which is going to make things difficult for Dodger by Terry Pratchett (WHICH I AM LOVING WITH MY WHOLE HEART over here.)

Shots from the week:

I drew this little guy when I started thinking I needed a new avatar. He’s a work in progress, but I’m quite pleased with him so far!

Made the girl an owl hat. Girl seemed quite pleased. Am now making boy a…penguin hat. Hold me.

Snapped this lovely scene on the way to work one morning. Thank God I have a lovely drive to work. It helps.

    That’s such a cute hat you made. And sounds like you got a lot done for the holiday season already. I’m so behind on decorating etc, but hope to make up for it today.

    Sounds like you’re having a fun holiday, and it hasn’t even started yet – awesome! Love the drawing, looks great so far so it’ll be great to see it when finished. It’s unfortunate but reading is always going to take a back seat at Christmas, even if Christmas is worth it.

    Sounds like you had a great, though very busy, week! I love this season, although it does get so very busy. Your new owl avatar is delightful! And so is the owl hat!

    Love the hat! Owls always make me think of Andi, I have to say. And yes, I can imagine having a pretty drive into work makes the commute more bearable! (Maybe just a tad but, you know. A tad is okay.)

    I’ve seen all your shots through Istagram, but I’ve been meaning to comment on your avatar owl. I think s/he is adorable!!!! Love it!!

    That owl hat is COMPLETELY kickass! And I need pics of your decorating efforts. I need to do more but I’ve hit a wall.
