And I’ll be glad when its done, if only so that when I go grocery shopping there isn’t a trillion other people picking up last minute things for Christmas celebrations too.

I feel like a grinch. I actually rather like a lot of Christmas things – I’m one of those odd people who hums carols all year long. I’ve had ‘Santa Baby’ stuck in my head like you wouldn’t believe for the past few weeks. If I still had my Christmas tree (I don’t, I gave it to my sisters a couple of years back) I might even have put it up because I actually -like- decorating it up and making it all pretty.

The stories, some (though not all) of the music, the butter cookies… all that I like. What I don’t like is the crowds of people all scrabbling at the shopping malls along with screaming children who are quite sick and tired of being dragged from place to place… I dunno… just doesn’t do it for me. Even when just nipping down to the supermarket for some extra milk.

Anyhow… this is today’s picture. As promised, its something a bit different from the past few days, though I have stuck with the green pen because it was the first thing at hand to draw with. I was listening to ‘Oh Happy Days’, the Sister Act version as I was drawing it, just in case you were curious. Ahhh, gotta love the classics.
