I see the usual dilemma when choosing gifts for Christmas. I don’t believe in giving flashy gifts, but to give a gifts from the heart that are appreciated by the recipient. The thought matters more.
That said, I enjoy the giving part, but am less enthralled in wrapping said gifts. I don't know if it is a guy thing, but I seem unable to wrap a present - Not well at least. Some are great at it, beautiful corners, hidden seams and a flat and taut perfection in the wrap.
But I prevail. I have to hand it to the inventor of the remarkable package mending tool. Of course, that is the most useful 3M Scotch Tape®. The packages are not necessarily pretty - but it is always the thought that counts most!
I always enjoy Mary’s Ruby Tuesday, and the more red the merrier. Not that I want to hear Bing Crosby crooning how he is dreaming of a Ruby Christmas (those are the lyrics, right?!) I do wish for a wonderful Christmas and Hannukah to all!
