Today I cleaned my room. Real cleaning, with brooms and water and washcloths and dust-induced sneezing, not just namby-pamby "organizing". Although I did have to rearrange my desk. It was starting to become a little hill-shaped.
So I moved everything from my desk:
...onto my bed.
I found this and put it on my door. It isn't a wreath, really. I think it might be a garland.
I found this cassette! It's one of my favorites. I remember listening to it when I was a little kid.
Sunday morning snapshots:
Ina's freakishly adorable drawings:
And pretty presents from friends I can't wait to open.
I am feeling very accomplished at this moment. Only, of course, I haven't even done my shelves yet. I'll tell you how it all goes tomorrow.
And now, I'm going to go to sleep. All that wiping of walls has tired me out.
Three days to Christmas oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh
This is the book list. I always find myself finishing entire books in the bookstore, and my list has grown to an appalling 66 books on my Shelfari. So I've whittled them down to 10.
When You Reach Me - Rebecca Stead
I Am The Messenger - Markus Zusak
Akin To Anne - L.M. Montgomery
And if we're talking about L.M. Montgomery, then I'd also like Magic For Marigold, Jane Of Lantern Hill, and Kilmeny Of The Orchard, please.
What The Dickens - Gregory Maguire
Love Among The Walnuts - Jean Ferris
Freak Magnet - Andrew Auseon
The Tale Of Despereaux - Kate DiCamillo
Wild Orchid - Cameron Dokey
Any Cameron Dokey book would be fine, though I already have Golden.
The Orange Girl - Jostein Gaarder
Influence - Mary-Kate & Ashley Olsen.
Oh, but this was hard. As you can tell, I'm a fairytale kind of girl, but I'll read anything, anywhere, at any time, so books really are my favorite thing, and I don't care if that's all there is under the tree.
I'd also like anything by C.S. Lewis, that dress book by Built By Wendy, and The Teen Vogue Handbook.
My sister and I were at Payless the other day, and we tried on some shoes. I tried a pair that sort of look like these on (I couldn't find them on the site), and I fell in love. They have got to be the most comfortable heels I've ever worn. If they are the only thing I get for Christmas, I will be totally happy.
They're by Montego Bay, I think. Not AE. But these would be nice too, if you want to send me a pair.
And you know I'm being quite serious, because I don't usually wear heels. But these are just sensational.
