show and tell Monday

Hi, I hope everyone is ready for the holidays. They are fast approaching. I still have quite abit today, but it will get done when its done. I am not going to get stressed about it. I have already been lucky enough to have received a couple of awesome gifts. If Christmas was over now I would be so happy and incredibly blessed by my friends. I was wrapping presents today and I was not looking so forward to that. My cats love to wrap presents. They wait for it all year long :) As you can see they are quite pooped out!

Saturday I had some shopping to do. I went with my sister and my friend. The stores were pretty crazy. Lots of crabby people for sure! I just wanted to get out of there, so I have some more to do tomorrow afternoon. We went to a favorite place of my families. Its a citrus grove called the Orange Patch. Its a cute little general store. The navel oranges are so sweet and juicy, they are just like candy!

I wish you and your familys joy in your world and peace in your home this holiday season and always! I hope anyone traveling safe arrivals. Have a holiday season of sparkle and charm.... much luv, gail

Your cats made me laugh! They remind me of my dogs who are so nosy when I wrap gifts. they have to stick their noses in all of it.
Merry Christmas Gail!

I agree, the general store would be fun to visit! Warmer weather would be great also! *smiles* Minnesota is pretty cold this time of year!

Sending Peace, Joy and Love your way for a blessed Christmas day!

Hi, that general store looks like a fun place to shop! Your kitties look exhausted from all the holiday preparations though. :) I love that butterfly jewelry display you have in your header....I'd love to know where to get one. Just PM me if you want to give up your secret. :) I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and the best of New Years!

Wow, I wish I lived in warmer climes right now! Although today it's in the 60s here in MA. Crazy, crazy weather. The almost 2' of snow that fell last week is just about gone.

Just in time for another wintery mix any day now.

I hope you had a great holiday my sweet.
