Crunch time

These are the finished plushies, I made for my nieces and nephew in Colorado. They were very fun to make- and very easy. Now that they are done, all my boys at home, Henry, Jack and even Mickey, seem to want one- I guess I have to make a few more over the weekend.
I still have to finish packing everything up. I'm making some special for my sister, and it's not finished yet. I also bought her a very special something from one of my favorite Etsy shops, Pretty Little Pendant. Her box has to go in the mail by tomorrow - come hell or high water. I'm pretty behind this year, don't know what my issue is. Usually, I've got all the cards done and mailed out- Presents out the door and the tree decorated by now.
At least the tree is up- I did that yesterday. We will get it decorated tonight or tomorrow. I wish I could slow down time. It keeps moving on, a what seems like breakneck speed-
which reminds me of a DD song-

The Valley-

These are days of hit and run
In the stream with everyone
Is a moment of our lives
On a wandering river
Going on together
Many journeys to arrive
I've been walking
Through the valley
Through the tall grass
And the shadows
And I feel it
I can see it
Yes I need it
I believe it
Through the city
And the towers
Turning minutes
Into hours
And I feel it
I can see it
Yes I need it
I believe it
When I think I'm being strong
And I lose direction then a life starts looking mischievous
Finding revelation
Out of desperation
Always stretching time
But it's never long enough
You think you're happy
Think you're free
But maybe we're just
Comfortably dizzy
I've been running
Through the valley
Through the tall grass
And the shadows
And I feel it
I can see it
Yes I need it
I believe it

Your plushies are so cute! I'm sure your nieces and newphew will just adore them!

Love the plushies LR--they kidlets will love them for sure. The pace/words of the song reminds me of the speed of the days passing by as we speak.

I don't know what my problem is either this year. My cards are still sitting in the boxes they came in, I have the makings of many baked goods but no goodies to speak of. 1/3 of my decorations still sitting in a box on a chair in the dining room....lol...do you want me to go on???

It's all good. We can only do what we can do. I don't want to stress myself out thinking about all that I haven't done or all that I'm not.

Hope you have a great weekend:)
