today's project + merry christmas!

December 24, 2010

Christmas Eve! For the first time in a long time (having worked retail for many, many years) I have today free to do what I please. Did I take advantage of this to sleep in? No. I woke up early and was too excited to stay in bed : )

In a few moments I am going to pack up the car, close the laptop, and head south for a few days with R and his family. There will be projects to do, food to make and eat, and time spent together. Weather permitting, there will be Christmas dinner on the beach. I have my bathers packed.

Today's project is to construct 20+ Christmas crackers for everyone. Yesterday N and I had a ball in the local variety shop picking out treasures (can you call a plastic trinket a treasure?) to go inside. We found spinning tops, kaleidoscopes, mini harmonicas and some old fashioned card games like Snap and Old Maid. Fun! I'm now trying to decide if I should include some cheesy jokes as well. I will need to ask R about those, he has quite a repertoire hehe.

I also wanted to take this time to say thank you to you all for a wonderful year. It has been my first full year of Rabbit & the Duck since leaving my full-time job, and while it's certainly been a learning curve it has also been a lot of fun and very rewarding. I look forward to the year ahead - there will be new things to make and new adventures to pursue. I hope you'll join me : )

Have a wonderful Christmas however you choose to spend it, and see you soon!
