Blogmas 2014 - Day 22 A day in the life as we prepare for Christmas
Let me just say that I am a gal who goes to bed around this time every night, but for the past week I have been staying up way later than usual, and I think my body is getting a little used to it. Problem is that even though I'm going to bed later, I'm not getting good sleep at night and still getting up early, so it's not really working for me.
But, anyway, today's prompt is a day in the life as we prepare for Christmas. I was supposed to do some baking but ended up not doing it, so it's on tomorrow's agenda :)
Here are some pics from my day::::
First thing in the morning, has to be a big cup of coffee.....
The kitchen counter is forever being used as a catch all, it drives me quite bonkers to be honest, especially when it looks like this every morning even though I clear it out at night.....thing is, I go to bed before everyone else and these brats of mine are always in there for snacks.
Dishes are just never ending. I load the washer, I empty the washer, I wash by hand, I soak...and on and so forth and rinse and repeat, literally.
This brat only likes going outside when it's not raining or snowing, look how happy she was today with the rain gone and the sunshine out.
Still loving that some of the trees have retained some leaves. What a beautiful sight!
I am desperately wishing for snow for Christmas, BUT, I don't know. I just wish the snow on those mountains would make it over here to us.
Rainy days are good for one thing though, candles and warm cozy feelings.
My poor tree is starting to die, I told the family we should just open the presents now, but they are not falling for it. Again, RUDE! hahaha
Tomorrow as I said, I'll be in the kitchen getting the final things done for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. I do hope that you have all been enjoying Blogmas as much as I have. I also know that some of you are not able to keep up and have had to stop, that is ok, I myself may end up putting the Blogmas prompts for the 24th and 25th on Friday 26th.
