Twas the night before the night before the night before Christmas

And all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Except me.
The shopping is finished
The cookies are baked*
The house looks half decent
Could it be a mistake?
Could I really be missing
The pre-Christmas rush
Drinking wine and relaxing
In the late evening hush?
I'll admit to still knitting
On an optional accessory
But I find that it's fitting
Oh hell, nothing rhymes with accessory.

*Three of the five varieties of cookie are neatly tucked away and the kitchen is all clean. Tomorrow I will finish baking the thawing frozen cookie dough and the chilling pinwheel cookies, but that's simple compared to the mess I made in the kitchen this evening mixing up all the doughs and batters. It's SO nice to have more than 2 square feet of counter space.

Just in case I don't get on tomorrow... have a wonderful and Merry Christmas :)
