Checking My List

There's a moment .. . just a day or two or three, before
Christmas, when we can finally look at our list and declare that
it's just about all done.

Today is that moment for me.
The packages were mailed and reassuring phone calls
have come in to let me know they arrived.

The last decorations went up yesterday.
( Confession .. . I didn't like the effect of my initial
efforts, so I found myself back on a ladder undoing
and redoing . What a Pathetic Perfectionist I am!)

Perhaps I should just exhale and
skate off into the sunset.

I'm finished, too - except mailing out ONE small box.

Is that a vintage card - or did you make it? I love it! It's so festive!
