Tuesday quiet

In the late afternoon, Ed looks over at my mess of paper, boxes, tape and ribbon and asks -- do you enjoy this Christmas wrapping?

Funny guy.

It's a super cold day. Unusually so. (Our high is 20F, or about -7C.) I have no interest in going out. Well, not beyond the trek to the barn to say hi to the cheepers.

And after, it's all about staying put in the farmhouse.

Wait, what about Snowdrop? -- you ask. She is a busy girl: she has a cookie decorating date after school and so I am on my own today.

And so immediately after breakfast...

... I set out to warp presents.

And it takes forever and this is good, because I never before felt that I had "forever" to get it all done.

So, do I like wrapping? In my view, it's one of those things that you do to move more important things forward. And at least for me, it's worth the effort.

Now, when Snowdrop comes here tomorrow, will she be able to keep her sticky fingers away from the pile of gifts?

I'll let you know tomorrow!
