Gifts...........

23. Gifts I can give to others

This will be brief today. I started wrapping presents and my house is a tip. Plastic containers of things everywhere, and wrapping paper exploding over the floor. I can never find the sticky tape or scissors or pen or the right ribbon, but what a joy it is to wrap the presents I have made or bought for the people I love. And a special parcel to send to China and a little girl who is cold.

That was the morning, and the evening sorted. And I am far from finished. This afternoon, we went to Jean's so I could show her how to pin her first quilt. That was more bonding with the floor. The floor and I have become well acquainted today, and tomorrow I suspect I may be doing precisely nothing. If I sit down on the couch I will be asleep in seconds, so I am pacing a little to try to ease the leg. Didn't I say a few days ago that this was not the best idea? Hmmm.

Aiyaiyai. I am finished for the day.

Bonding with the couch sounds more interesting than bonding with the floor!

You are so far ahead of me. I haven't bought one present yet!!

I am in complete sympathy with the floor business. For me it is the right hip. Time spent on the floor means time hobbling around when I manage to get myself up! This growing old business is not for the faint of heart!

And you did a bit of Christmas decorating here, too. It looks so cheerful and bright! You're so far ahead of the game that I know you'll have plenty of time to enjoy the season and all of its delights. Do you ever read Brenda at Coffee, Tea, Books and Me? She had a delightful post on Sunday about the Christmas season. I'm pretty sure that you'd enjoy reading it.
