Six homemade stockings
Five birthday guests
Four excited children
Three gifts from Shauna
Two dozen cookies,
and a pretty decorated Christmas tree.
The other "Mina's Christmases" picture this post will paint for you has not to do with the photo, but the time. I have set all of these posts to publish at 7 am. Some are missing photos as events are on-going, but I have been able to get them all ready by publish time. Not the stockings. I taped them up (because I need to buy hooks), shot them and uploaded the pictures the minute they were finished. (And these were pretty sloppily done by my standards--thank goodness the photo hides much of that.) It will be 1:40 by the time I post.
I spend all season, and all year for that matter, procrastinating. I always want to have everything ready to go ahead of time. But it almost never happens. The only time I was ready for Christmas early was the year I was scheduled to be induced on Dec 23rd. The sad fact is that if I had not decided to post about our stockings, they would remain yet unsewn.
Tomorrow's post is scheduled to publish at 9 pm. That is not because of procrastination, but because of the time of the event I will be posting about. Just so you know...
