Day What?

Today is the 11th and yet I’ve put up the picture from the 12th for the In Gratitude of Kindness Advent Calendar.

It seems like I’m confused but actually I’m not. I had to do a small swap of those two dates because I hadn’t counted on a few factors. A super busy weekend, a wicked bout of insomnia and a cranky back meant I had zippo.

I had a list of recipients, a couple of lose ideas and no time or energy to create a single thing by the 11th. Total lack of advance planning!

So the toiletries have been in a shopping bag ready to go for a couple of weeks. I added jackets and sweaters from the pile of clothes that didn’t work for the immigrant family (too big) and a couple other items. I had already called to make sure these items were acceptable at the Lighthouse and off I went after work.

The guy at the intact desk was so appreciative and said everything will go to good use.

Easy and done! Just like the blog post. Good, now I need to go create tomorrow’s gifts and have a hot tub.
