Christmas Tuesday

Happy Christmas Tuesday...I still feel quite like I've been run over by a train...I thought I would start to get my steam back by now, I guess I underestimated how much last week wore me out...The above is a picture of the cup I did for the Alice in Wonderland tea cup swap sent off to my swap partner. Now, just one to go, I've been praying that Jules would get her "Home for the Holidays II" pkg I sent to her. It was sent to Australia, I've never shipped international before so now I feel even worse that I didn't get it in the mail sooner....We named our pkg beyond the swap theme and I chose "Anticipation", I didn't mean for that word to indicate that Jules would be waiting forever to receive it!
Wedding miracle #2 : By the time we packed up the Cherry Cottage on the pacific, made a short stop by Railroad Square so I could share some of my favorite places with Mitzi it was getting quite late in the day on Saturday. I was more than a little nervous because I'm not good at navigating my way around the city in the daylight, let alone in the dark...I'm not sure what time we actually pulled into San Francisco, but blessings among blessings we found our way to the hotel without interruption or driving in circles. We stayed at the Marriott on Pier 39 and Mitzi thought the valet parking among all of the other attention given to us was great fun (thanks to her beloved King whom is a platinum member with the Marriott). We ate baklava, drank s'more flavored hot chocolate took a little stroll to do a little shopping and Mitzi taught me how to wet felt in the hotel room...It all was quite lovely and like a dream the next morning when I woke up Mitzi was gone... a 4:00 a.m shuttle to catch a 6:00 a.m. flight back to her own "Cherry Kingdom" and all of her princess' waiting for her at the airport. Not quite sure how I'll ever thank Mitzi enough for all of her love, support and sweat she poured out by my side throughout the wedding week...it truly was amazing...
Madhatter time...must run, two days left of work and I think how can a week disappear in a blink and two little days seem to take a lifetime?
