ready or not

So are you ready or not?

What are you waiting for?  Who is coming?
 Are your stockings hung with care?
In hopes of what?
Now all we have to do is wait until Christmas.
So, I ask you, what are you waiting for?
Are you ready or not?
How will you "prepare him room?"
Does this season of advent have you ready or not?

Enter my "give it away" - I will be back Christmas Eve to announce the winner.
Winner shall be selected by random number generator.

Ready. And today I am going to stay inside (away from this rain and wind storm)and play Christmas music.

Dear PVE:
I am (mostly) ready. I have some last minute shopping to do for a special gift or two, in the antiques shops near our house in the country. There's some grocery and liquor shopping, as well. I hope to find some marron glace, and I know a tin of caviar will be in my sights. We're making Lindaraxa's rib roast and Yorkshire pudding recipes for Christmas dinner. Today we have a city lunch with dear friends, and then we depart for Darlington in the morning. I have enjoyed attending church throughout Advent this year, and I look forward to welcoming Him with song and prayer, not only gifts and food. Life, as we learned vividly just recently with the events in Newtown, is precious, and to be cherished and celebrated. Happy Christmas to you and yours, Reggie

Purple flowers,
Sending you off a wee package and this storm does indeed require some cheery holiday music to drowned out the eery wind and sideways rain!

I think at some point we just have to stop and say we did our best and be still and be ready.

All your last minute plans and your present and future plans sound marvelous.
Let's celebrate the New Year - fondue?

Just a few more "neighbor" gifts (homemade bread) to drop off. I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and wonderful New Year, Patricia!

Ready..well!! I'm a bit nervous but I"m almost there. Flying home to the West Coast on Christmas Eve with my case loaded with gifts. Wishing you and your family, wonderful, magical Christmas moments. They are simply the best!

I had all the furniture and rugs scotch guarded where to sit as it takes 6-7 hours to fully dry. We are expecting 25 for family dinner on Christmas Eve.....not quite ready!
Happy Holidays, Patricia!
Warm wishes,

I am here to tell you that blog commenting is one of the most powerful traffic generation methods around. I believe blog commenting has taken over what traditional article marketing used to be.

Stock Commissions

I'm not ready for the gift giving Patricia but I am ready for the birthday of Jesus! I am planning to sit by the fire tonight and read the Christmas story and focus on the real reason for the season. The rest will happen. I am going out tomorrow and buy whatever I want for those that are left on the list. I think it will be fun!! I always enjoy getting in the hustle and bustle on christmas eve for a little while. Merry Christmas!
