a week before Christmas

and all through the house
every creature was stirring especially the mice
the stockings were hung by the chimney with care
with hopes that the maid and cook would soon be here

the children are grown
and have thoughts of their own
while our heads have gone gray
and we wander the nights alone....

When out on the roof there arose such a clatter
we stumbled from the bed to see what was the matter!
Stubbed toes and loud cries as we looked out into the night

The moon was abreast on the slush that was snow
lighting up the night like a sale sign at Lowe's
When all of the sudden what did appear
Why 8 big fat turkeys trying to nest somewhere dear.

Commercial break:
It has been busy here the past week just trying to stay warm and get a few things done.
The bagwall has been built.
The pots are all glazed and there might be a small window of opportunity to load and fire that wee gas kiln.
So here I am with hope that we can keep the weather long enough to fire.
If not- maybe just after Christmas.
We have been busy with the Etsy shop shipping at least once a day and yesterday I made two trips to the post office.
It looks like another trip today.
I did go back and read more of the comments on Ron's Blog.
There are so many there now I might go back and read them all more thoroughly when I get some time.
But now what were we talking about?

Christmas is coming up fast!
So don't forget to add your name to the post two down from this one for the generosity chain.
Names will be picked in 5 days!

Meanwhile keep up the shopping and good cheer!
( and stay out of the M.A.L.L.............
