Making the Magic

It has been a flurry of activity readying this white Christmas. The boys are placing their usual demands of cookies and Christmas Eve bowling (a Blandings family tradition) so things must seem even to them. My office, and the basement, are piled high with boxes, but no one seems to think piles of boxes of books are any different than rows of shelves of books, so all is well.
My husband, and our contractor friend, assure me that the click and rattle in the ducts is just the way they are responding to the heat and not the rodent infestation that I suspect (what house of mine would be complete without mythical mice?) and I am sleeping easy assuring myself that not a creature is stirring.
I am wishing you a season of joy.
I am very grateful for Room Temperature for sending me the image, above.

  1. Merry Christmas to you and yours Mrs. B! (Christmas eve bowling is brilliant. A perfect together thing, from the malls and the madness.)

  2. A very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
    I hope you will soon find your way out of boxes and into a well appointed home!!!!

  3. Merry Christmas to you in your new home. May this also be a season of joy for you.

    My days of unemployment are made richer through your entries. Thanks for that!

  4. Nope, not a creature is stirring, not even a mouse. (Besides there is nothing you can do about it until after Christmas). Congratulations on making it into your new home in time for Christmas and even getting decorated!! Wishing you a wonderful Christmas 2011 and many many more in your new (no creature stirring) home. Mary

  5. I once asked you for advice and you were gracious to respond with some suggestions that have resulted in marvelous friendships this past year. Thank you and have a Merry Christmas!

  6. Mrs. Blandings,

    Don't ever leave the blogosphere. To this errant blogger, at least, you are the very heart of all that is good in the world, no matter where you make your home.

    Merry Christmas!

  7. Glorious post,

    How generous of your to stretch yourself — for your children, your husband (suspension of disbelief, is after all, what helps keep us sane at times!), and finally us, your readers.
    Happy homecoming and may 2011 be a year marked with milestones and memories and maybe even a wee mouse or two 😉

    Warm regards, Alcira
