I have a very bad habit? or trait? - whatever - I just know it's a bad one.

I do all my Christmas shopping in September and October....... so when November comes I am done.  It is a compulsive trait of mine (one of many).  Actually that in itself is not so bad.............. BUT ....... if I think my loved ones have left my Christmas gift shopping to the very last minute I am hurt.  It makes me feel like I am an after thought.  I put so much thought into my gift giving....... and part of me hopes/wishes others will put the same thought into my gift.  

Let's get one thing straight here - it's NOT the gift!  I don't expect expensive gifts or BIG gifts...... I just want a gift that shows the giver has thought about me.  Is that wrong??? 

Anyway........... I have been stewing cause I don't think Sir Steve has done any shopping for me.... I know he has done the lil one and the granddaughter... I've seen their parcels come into the house.  BUT as for unmarked/undesignated gifts? None - not a thing.  and yes I know there's still time before Christmas - 2 1/2 weeks ..........BUT - it's only 2 1/2 weeks!!!  and yes I know I'm bad......

Yesterday was week #2 of Advent for the lil one...... she lit her advent candle before dinner and opened her week 2 present (it was a "what if" book) She was asking us the "what if" questions when Sir Steve stopped her and said "I have something for S" and he handed me an envelope.  My jaw dropped.  I opened it to find a tree ornament...... OMG!!!  we think so much alike!!  I shouted 'WAIT' and ran from the table - hunted through my stash of hidden gifts and came back to the table with a small box for Sir Steve.  

You see I had bought him a tree ornament too!!!  

Here's his ornament to me........... 

And mine to him (the picture is blurry - it says "All I want for Christmas is you")

I'm a lucky woman - see it's the small things that make a BIG difference.

Topsy Turvy



I have been busy - crazy busy - with Christmas coming.... I started baking over a week ago - baking nearly every day... not one thing but two or three things - every day.  (that's as well as cleaning the house and doing laundry and all the other little chores that make up my days)

Why do I bake so much you ask?? Cause we give sweet baskets as gifts to friends and  family and neighbours.  AND  I love doing it. 

But sometimes it starts to feel like my world is topsy turvy - and this weekend was when it hit.......... Sir Steve was helping in the kitchen - he's my sous chef......... we baked up a storm this weekend.... making individual date loaves ... (3 batches!! 6 loaves total) and Chocolate Surprise cookies (they have a peppermint hershey's kiss in the middle) and I made a big batch of "ugly Christmas sweater" cookies.  Everything has to be done by this coming weekend as Sir Steve's family is coming for an early Christmas celebration on Saturday.

but in all the hustle and bustle I start to feel lost - not grounded - not really connected to Sir Steve.  I was feeling needy.  I need to connect to him on an intimate level ya know... not just as the chief cook and bottle washer...... my world starts to feel upside down - out of sorts.  Our connection starts to feel broken (well to me anyway)

But Sir Steve knew - figured it out - sensed I was needy? One of those - OR all of them.

After supper on Saturday he gave me the order "naked bent over the bed".  I was too tired - too strung out - to feel much of anything...... (usually I get at least some butterflies - but nothing on Saturday) 

As I was bent over the bed - naked - and Sir Steve started off spanking - god only knows what possessed me - but I turned my head and asked "SO - what's your other hand doing?"  He said 'just hanging there'........ and proceeded to swat my ass with everything he had!!  And throughout the spanking - every so often - he would declare what his hand was doing - like 'NOW I am using both hands at the same time!' Believe you me - I didn't need him to tell me!!  My ass was well aware he was using both hands at the same time!!!

As the colour of my ass changed from white to pink to bright red....... I felt my world righting itself.  Felt the connection to Sir Steve forging stronger links....... 

When we were done - Sir Steve announced it was time to watch a movie....... I curled up on the sofa - he put on "It's a Wonderful Life" and I smiled contentedly - it is indeed a Wonderful Life !!!

24 hours later my ass is SO itchy!!  Anyone else have that reaction to post spanking? No bruises just itchy itchy itchy

I love gnomes!!  We added them a couple of years ago to our Christmas decor.

This little one sits on the corner of the coffee table

Then I bought a couple of cushion covers for the season

We added a new gnome this year (the tall one)


and some banners by the front door.......

So yeah I love gnomes!

Yesterday there was a package in the mail.  I was a little confused - we weren't expecting any packages.  I checked - no return address....... huh???
When I opened it there were some more gnomes - tree ornaments!!

AND I knew who sent them - youngest daughter!!
They soon found a spot on the tree


What a nice Christmas surprise!!
