TODAY is the last day for the BLOG HOP, and don't I wish it could go on and on, but, there is always the New Year and more Giveways and fun is planned in 2012.
If you haven't had the opportunity to surf the hundreds of blogs of participating Bloggers, I urge you to try for it today because today is the very last day for you to get in on it. You may still still enter MY GIVEAWAY HERE before it closes this evening at 11:59.
I am hoping that all of our new found followers remain friends long after this Blog Hop is over, and while I do not always blog about my quilting and crafts, I do try to keep you interested, at least I hope what I write about is interesting. So stick around after the party is over, 2012 should be a very interesting year!!
Speaking for myself as a Blogger, and I am betting for all of the other Bloggers taking part in this Anniversary Blog Hop, having so the visitors come and check us out and receiving the many very nice comments that have been left, and happy to have been a visitor myself with my co-participant bloggers this week.
MICHELE from The Quilting Gallery puts in a great deal of time so that you, the reader will enjoy her blog and those blogs that we all write and I thank her for her time and her insights in respect to the Quilting Community. We just love The Quilting Gallery, and every week there is much activity going on there.
I delivered over 15 dozen cookies yesterday and silly me, I neglected to take pictures of the 15 dozen!! I made so many varieties I lost count, and, the lady who ordered them had an afternoon appointment, so, I hurried over and dropped the off and forgot to take the camera with me!
Now, all I need now is to clear off the work surface, hit the shower and get ready to wrap...I will leave the party early and drive into town to pick up a friend who is coming home for Christmas from Hong Kong.
Tomorrow I will host my own wrapping party and have invited me, myself and I to participate.
Monday has been set aside to clean the whole house, these floors really need taking care of because everyone and his uncle Sam have been here delivering and picking up and I hadn't the heart to make them take their shoes off...LOL Then, I plan a long soak in a bubble bath to get rid of the aches and pains (kinks) and get ready to welcome the senior lady of the house back from her Caribbean cruise, all tanned and ready to relay her orders for what she believes I still have to do before I leave to travel 7 hours to my sons for Christmas....whooppee
I know Christmas comes the same date every year and every year I am never really quite ready. Oh well, do what you can and the rest somehow comes together, that is part of the magic of Christmas.
I confess, I long for the "old" days, my olden days to be exact, I had a business, a family, parents that lived away, and somehow those Christmases were magical, and Christmas eve was the best time of all, soft caroles playing in the background, hot coffee spiced with just the right amount of cinnamon and my feet up looking at the decorated tree with all those pretty wrapped parcels beneath it and then on to bed at the end of my day to get ready to face the 6 or 6:30 get up from the excited shouts of the little ones downstairs jumping for joy at all that Santa left.
What is your magic moment during Christmas?
Write me a comment and tell me in at least 25 words all about the magic of your Christmases past, then Mr. Random and I get together we will choose another winner apart from this Blog Hop and send you a SURPRISE and don't fret, it will be a decent surprise!
So there, I'll share my magic of Christmas past with yours.
