a long to do list

It's snowing again- we got a total of 10" on Friday night- so no company Xmas party for me-
And they are forecasting another 12" today. We spent most of the day yesterday out and about in Burlington. We battled the cranky people at the post office ( anything liquid, fragile, potentially hazardous inside, would you like packing tape with that??) , food shopping at a very packed market (i still don't know what i am making for xmas dinner), lunch out at Halverson's, our favorite cheap date/burger joint, shopping on Church street at the Artist Market and some of the little boutiques and a visit to the Firehouse Gallery to see a cool new installation ( more pix of those soon). Finished up the stragglers and will pack up all those boxes to go out tonight. We came home made a huge batch of shrimp pad thai for dinner then Jack and I finally got the tree all decorated.

TODAY-We are hanging out all day- trying to get stuff done-the list of things to accomplish is very long...(glup)

this is my to do list (it will probably spill into the next three days)
make a pot of chili
make sweets to give away - peanut brittle, fudge, cookies- if the oven will work
finish the journals
Clean the kitchen, including sweep and mop the floor
Clean the entire bathroom
Straighten the living room
Dust and Vacuum
Do three loads of laundry
Changes sheets on all the beds
shovel show
do day job homework so counterparts in Asia have everything they need on Monday morning
post items on freecycle
post new ACEOS on ETSY (yes! I did finish three yesterday and have no pictures to show!)
clean out fridge
take out the trash
play with the kids in the snow
make a holiday sound track
pack up all my orders and finally xmas boxes going out
finish xmas cards

so happy decemeber 21st- welcome to the shortest, darkest day of the year-
the days are going to get brighter and longer from here. it's a beautiful thing.... rejoice!

Aren't women such multi taskers?
Merry Christmas to you and your family glimmering.
