I took this week off of school instead of next week (like the public schoolers) because I knew I would need most of my time PRE-CHRISTMAS, not POST. Every day I wonder, though, if that was a big mistake; the children seem more...QUIET...when doing math than when running around the house in a state of free oblivion.
This is the madness that ensues...

I am fluttering to and fro trying to finish the making and the wrapping and the writing and the tying with red ribbons and the baking WITHOUT the snitching (try THAT one!) and all the things I enjoy so much.
I actually enjoy a good pre-Christmas bustle.
Every morning the first thing that is spoken is the Christmas countdown (five more days!) and then, added for effect "And TOMORROW it will be only FOUR days!" as if I needed THAT reminder...
I still have things yet to do, quite a bit in fact- but I think five days ought to be PLENTY of time to hatch all my plans. Right?!? And yet- here I sit...blogging. ;-) In all fairness- I just finished canning up the last of our pumpkin patch into Pumpkin Butter to pass along to all our neighbors and librarians and such.
Here are a few Pinteresting plans I am working on (and will be working on up until the very end) with a few extra projects thrown in for good measure.
Pleeenty of time............
What are your days looking like this fine day FIVE before Christmas?
Any last minute to-do's in your workshops?
Are you feeling Jolly or just overwhelmed?
Five more days!!
