I have been a little singular in my focus lately, ensuring that Cordelia is on the mend has left many other tasks unfinished. When we came home from the hospital on Tuesday there was much to be done just to get the house under control. We'd left in such a hurry that there were funky messes all over. I had a bunch of laundry to do, sterilization was absolutely a necessity for a few items in our home---not to mention the regular upkeep that had gone undone.
As you can see our little patient is feeling much improved
So I have been slowly working my way through general maintenance: sweeping, mopping and sifting through the piles of stuff that seemed to have multiplied while we were gone. I am also fitting in paper grading as I go along, the semester is nearly over and grades will soon be due.
Now I am now on to the fun projects that circle around the holidays. I am finding that even a few lost days have meant that I need to amend my rather ambitious list. I may not be sewing jackets and purses this week. A few people may be getting gift cards instead of the handmade gifts I had hoped to finish up, but I think I can still pull it all together to be a very special first Christmas in our home.
She is back to her silly self.
Over the next couple of days I hope to complete my Christmas shopping, wrap gifts, finish up a few handmade gifts and projects, our end of the year family newsletter (easier for us than Christmas cards), mail several packages, do some baking for a few goody baskets (also delivering the baskets), figure out if I am doing a Christmas dinner (plan for that if necessary), and I have a little bit of a Kindness Bandit Blitz in the works.
Glad to be back in the swing of things.
Do you have a lot to finish up in the next 10 days?
