How busy is everyone right now!!! As usual, I am running late with so many things but somehow it will get done.....right?
Last night I was wrapping some presents and I had help for the majority of the time.There are very few things that I do alone. Zeke smelled everything and Brogie snoozed right beside me the whole time. But it was Gummie and Lucy who helped the most.
A few weeks ago I bought three packages of really pretty, scented tissue paper....lemon, cinnamon, and peppermint. I know, goofy, goofy, goofy......but in the boutique it was so pretty and the scent was sutle.......and I was sure that it would be perfect for some super soft scarfs I had for some of my friends.
When I opened the lemon package it wreaked of rotting citrus ....so I tossed it. The cinnamon package was shall we say full bodied.....overpowering. Gummie and I started sneezing and Lucy barked and Zeke jumped off the bed and went downstairs. So I tossed it. I was almost afraid to open the peppermint package.....but it turned out to be really, really pleasing. I guess Gummie thought it was candy because he was all over it and Lucy started pawing at it. It was a hit and even after I was done Lucy and Gummie were still "interested"............too interested. I put the wrapped packages in a shopping bag .....ready to be delivered this weekend.
It was late, I was tired and we called it a night.
I woke up to sounds of Christmas morning when paper is ripped off packages with gusto and there's little concern for where it lands. Brogie was still asleep but the other three were deep into the excitement of Christmas. I saved the scarves but the shopping bag and the boxes and wrapping paper and especially the tissue paper were in shreds.
I was REALLY mad at them, at first...........but when I yelled they all did that cavalier thing........laid down and looked up at me with those huge brown eyes. I am such a sucker but scented tissue paper SUCKS.
