MY DAILY CALENDAR – DAY 351 – DECEMBER 26, 2013

MY DAILY CALENDAR FOR THURSDAY, DAY 351 OF 2013: And in case you didn’t know, today is BOXING DAY in the British Empire. That is traditionally the day following Christmas Day, when servants and tradesmen would receive gifts, known as a “Christmas box”, from their bosses or employers. In other words … MERRY CHRISTMAS to the folk who do all the work from the folk who get all the money. It’s also the day I’ll share with you …

WHAT DID I FIND UNDER THE CHRISTMAS TREE?

In addition to love, goodwill and friendship I also received:

A 1000 piece BEST SELLER Jigsaw Puzzle!

A 1000 piece BEST SELLERS Jigsaw Puzzle!

Which will become my daily challenge for 2014 replacing the daily origami challenge.

STAR WARS ORIGAMI

Which will become my Saturday and Sunday Challenge for 2014. So now you know what to expect when you visit the Smiling Bagel next year … in addition to my ever so charming daily ramblings and fantasies.

And I got several new additions for my Christmas trees

  1. Thank you, Renee! I hope you enjoy the book, Rob. Looks like you got some pretty great stuff–we received a couple of jigsaw puzzles, too.
