Saturday Photo Hunt #46: LONG!

LONG!


The
Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt theme for this week is LONG!

It's the weekend before Mom's "winter vacation" starts, so the house if FULL of all kinds of presents that have to be finished an' packed before school ends.

This is a photo of the presents Mom made for the secretaries/clerks/instructional assistants she works with during the year. Mom bought a bunch of oyster hampers (those little Chinese food containers) to package the presents that she made.


Shhhhh! Don't tell anyone, but the containers have lavender-scented sugar-and-salt scrub an' a handmade lavender-scented glycerine soap.

It would have taken furry long to put out the other group of packages. Mom has eighteen little brown giftbags that have a jar of oatmeal-raisin-spice cookie mix in each. Those packages go to her teacher colleagues. Then there are the seven Secret Paws boxes that are nearly ready to go, the three Trader Joe's frozen foods bags full of gifties for her "girls," the snowman bag full of stocking-stuffers for her god-daughter and the sisters, an' the packages going "North" ... oh, an' a furry special package, too.

Mom will be glad when it's the 15th of December 'cuz the storage room will once again be empty without the LONG lines of presents waiting to go ...

Whewww!

Your mommy has been a busy bee this month. You should go crawl on her lap to reward her for all her hard work.

My Mummy says Trader Joe's is a great place, and your presents remind her of her great friend in Seattle that she's not seen in ages...

Purrs,

I'm sure your mom's friends and colleagues must look forward to her gifts every year. As you know, my mom's a teacher too and she has a long list of people to give to also, but she doesn't give handmade gifts like your mom. I guess that's my tattle, she store buys her gifts. Though one year she bought the ingredients to make the cookie mixes. She ran out of time and another two teachers had made them to SELL. Mommy even bought those handmade gifts. Since then she's stopped trying. Is your mom going to give anything to the custodians of the school. My mom just remembered hers the other day while in Walmart. The head custodian at her school does a super duper job. He's even the one who brought Sophie to my mom. He LOVES animals and if it's a cat he tries to get my mom to take it. He used to help my mom take care of her rats and hamster. They're long gone now.

Anyway good job on your gift giving and wrapping. You've done a marvelous job.

Your mom sure is ambitious, DMM! My mom just doesn't have much energy this year.

Smooches,

Mom's rapidly running out of steam. She's still got lots of stuff to do including writing the holiday letter for the family. Argh. I cannot wait until she's home for vacation.
