In the meantime, I've done HALF my Christmas cards (yes, I'm late this year) and I've wrapped all my presents - those that are here and wrappable, anyway, a few more are still expected in the mail - and they're under the decorated tree, tomorrow we have a visitor for lunch, on Sunday I have a breakfast date with a local fan (she is attending the local university this year, found me, and asked me - pretty cool!) and then Monday we have the last doctor visit for a while for rdeck. Then I REALLY have to clear my desk of the various bits of paperwork that have been accumulating there over the past six months while I was busy with the third Worldweavers volume.
Then it's fun time - I have to figure out how to get from here to Everett on December 21 in order to catch a train to Leavenworth and the Christmas lights there on the 22nd. Then I have to figure out a way to get us HOME after the Leavenworth visit. Then it's Christmas Eve. Then it's Christmas Day. Then it's five days until 2008 turns up on the doorstep.
I've a busy year shaping for 2008. Lots of stuff cooking. I'm doing quite a few school visits and lectures and classes next year, on top of the usual round of conventions - and I have a whole new book I am going to be writing in the interstices of time. I have an odd feeling that I'm going to blink three times and it will be this time next year and I'll be writing a note on my blog wondering where the time has yet again vanished from underneath me.
Life. It's a blur of small miracles.
