First UPS and the post office. Today is supposed to be the busiest mailing day of the year, but I have some things that must go.
For starters, there's a box of Christmas goodies for my parents, since they will be on their own for Christmas (their actual gifts are already on the way).
A short break to rescue Aeowyn's stocking from Che . . .
I bought the wrong fire engine for OE, but I hated to send it back. Robin will take it to Portland for her little R. Mom shopped for that CD while she was here but got tired and gave up.
LATER--40 minutes in line at UPS and 30 minutes at the Post Office. Not bad for the busiest mailing day of the year. Armed with my iPod (Solitaire and a Terry Pratchett audio), I felt no pain.
Next order of business: Corn and bean salsa. Check out the recipe here. This stuff is to die for.
And finally, Aeowyn's stocking. Here it is at 10:30 p.m.:
I've got just a few inches to the heel, and then I'll put it away. Tomorrow: cleaning up, with the kids arriving in the evening.
