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 ...
