Day 343

I was pleasantly surprised to find a $5 off coupon to Hallmark in my email this morning. Since I was planning to run a couple of errands near a Hallmark store today, I went in to see if I could find something in the $5 range. After debating some cards, I noticed that they had their huge rolls of gift wrap on sale: Buy 1 (for $4.99), get the second for $0.99. Perfect - with coupon, 2 rolls of nice wrapping paper for about $2! I started perusing the various patterns they had in bins throughout the store and thought I had settled on a couple of nice ones when I saw these:

I literally gasped out loud. (I'm sure the other shoppers thought I was nuts.) Patrick LOVES the comic strip "Peanuts," so I knew these were a must. I've already done most of my wrapping for this year, but next year, watch out!

Quote of the Day: "Christmas! The very word brings joy to our hearts. No matter how we may dread the rush, the long Christmas lists for gifts and cards to be bought and given--when Christmas Day comes there is still the same warm feeling we had as children, the same warmth that enfolds our hearts and our homes." -- Joan Winmill Brown
