I Feel It Comin’ On!

December 2, 2008 by Michelle

I’ve been Scroogy lately, admit it. You’ve been reading my posts wondering why I’m so crabby when the calendar shows we’re entering the most magical time of the year. The snow has started falling, and it’s all still beautiful enveloping the trees in lacy loveliness. And I’m crabbing like I have a piece of Scrooge’s precious coal trapped in an orifice somehow.

Not today. Today, I’m focusing on the happiness that the holiday brings.

(ok, except Melisa — Happy Hanukkah to you)

As darkness grows longer
and days are so cold,
Our faith is but stronger,
a wonder foretold.

‘Tis more than just gimmes,
more than boxes or bags.
Mister Man does his shimmies;
Little Miss maybe lags.

The treats by the fireplace
full of cookies and milk
for his jolly presence to grace
with a whisper like silk.

In the morning they’ll wake
full of dreams and of love.
Anxious and begging to bake
for the One from above.

Ok so it isn’t great, but it’s early. And now I’m motivated to get working on my Christmas cards. Only seventeen more mailing days to get them all done!

PS Don’t forget to go check out the Merry SITSmas celebration — there’s a new prize every hour today!
PPS And really don’t forget about Karen over at The Rocking Pony who makes the coolest t-shirts and more for kids. She’s got her 12 Days of Christmas giveaway going on.
PPPS Ok ok ok, while I’m talking about them, Kat is giving away my one of my favorite book series ever, The Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon, as part of her Sex and Chocolate weekend winners (you’ve got until Friday night).

    It is a great poem! I have made sure that those close to me don’t have high expectations of getting cards on time. I am not that organized. Happy Holidays!

    • Michelle

      The high expectations of cards on time is… not always happening. It’s interesting to look each year at the dates I upload photos for the Christmas cards and calendars and see where I’m REALLY pushing the envelope and where I’ve actually sorta gotten them out on time!

  • Valerie

    krissy – I didn’t actually get cards out today… just a little too much scheduled today, BUT I was productive and that’s always a plus, right? The cards will get out. Eventually! Happy holidays!

    Ah, Christmas cards…. I think I’m forgoing them this time. Haven’t filled them out yet, so I can’t see as how I’d actually remember to buy the STAMPS in time…

    • Michelle

      Stamps? Stamps? Eh, who needs stamps. Send them postage due!

  • wenderful

    I can’t get into Christmas right after thanksgiving. It takes me about a week or so. Then I’m good to go! Merry SITSmas!

    • Michelle

      It really depends on the year, but I’m finding that the earlier companies “make” Christmas, the longer it takes me to get into it.

  • Carrie

    Merry SITSmas a little late! I’m still working my way through the links!

    Love the poem!
