Quick and Wonderful

Quick and Wonderful

The time is short and in my quest to perfect my procrastination I am about to embark on a feat attempted by only the bravest of fools.

I move Tuesday and have had plenty of time, emphasis on plenty here, to prepare.  Alas one of my genetic misfires that has increased with the march of time is organization.  I had it once upon a time.  Perhaps I inadvertently  packed it.  Anyway three sleeps to go and lots to do on a weekend filled with social obligations.  Go figure.

Fridays are dedicated to the garden my sisters and I have at the country home of my brother and his wife.  We toil in the soil then sit sipping while my brother barbecues and SIL serves up the results of said toil.  It takes hours to eat, drink and laugh, so no packing there.

Today is our family Christmas Party.  Uhuh.  We are a very social group and the challenges of getting multiple generations together indoors in December has become difficult.  So being the Einstein minds we are it was decided to hold the party in August where my nephew has a lovely large property and pool.  My Sis and her daughter had a big cake made with a Santa and Merry Christmas written across it.  That caused interest in the store when we picked it up!  So this day is spoken for.

I have been reading as many of my fav blogs as possible but not commenting or posting very much but come Tuesday a new era starts!!

My friend Joss Burnell at crowingcrone.wordpress.com has invited me to play The Seven Links Challenge and I am so pumped but can only do so once the move is complete. (that’s my Mommy gene making me do that me do that!)

Missing you all my delicious woodcraft friends but looking forward to catching up on all your posts next week when I can take the time to savor!  I know I will have plenty of time then – I have it in my organizer!

    Good luck with the move! I agree with Tracy here above — label the boxes!!! And put each box in the room where it belongs when they unload.. Just thinking about moving and all the boxes makes me tired. There’s been too much of it in my life.

    Good luck with your move! We moved in April, and I hope to never have to do it again LOL!
    I’m sorry I’ve been a bad bloggy friend of late, but I, too, am making some changes. And now that the summer is winding up, it will make things easier.
    Looking forward to your 7 links!

    Best of luck with the move – label the boxes. When I moved, I had to open 20 boxes before finding the one thing I needed!

    Herein lies the greatest example of courage I’ve ever seen! Well, maybe… If I were one of your sisters, upon leaving the Christmas festivities, I’d be expecting your parting comment – “Thanks for the generous Christmas present. See ya tomorrow at 10:00!”

    Oh Chris, I love your style! I think your organizing gene may have met up with mine and are laying on the beach in Costa Rica drinking and laughing. I too had one, once upon a time, but now it constantly eludes me. You have a great weekend planned. Go forth and enjoy! You’ll be all packed by Tuesday cuz hey, you gotta be.
    walk in beauty.

      Thanks Joss. I know you will understand this better than anyone …my fibro is in full exacerbation. Pain and exhaustion sky high so just getting by moment to moment..the price of moving as you know. I think you and I should search out Costa Rica then every other delightful spot with sun sand and surf. :) Started the day by sleeping in but most is done..now just have a few small things and try to clean up the just nuked look. Wanted to take a minute to answer comments and thank you for reading and being this great person in my life. You are inspiring! Okay am procrastinating..but what a pleasant way to do it!
