December 23

Wonderful day! When I got up it was snowing and there was no doubt that it had snowed all night. I decided to walk to the hot chocolate stand before heading to the workshop so I could watch the snowplows and snow blowers moving all the new snow. It was very cold outside this morning and the snow was very deep. I would sink down into the snow past my knees when the elves plowing or blowing the snow would stop and I’d get a little ahead of them as they plowed the sidewalks and roads. The elves were singing as I passed them on our separate ways. It left me to walk deep in memories. As I rounded the corner I noticed some movement up ahead by the workshop so I stopped and sipped my hot chocolate as I watched the tarp being taken off of something very bright and shiny! The big sleigh, the BIG SLEIGH is here and getting its final inspection! That can only mean one thing! Tomorrow is Christmas Eve! I ran to the sleigh and ran my gloved hand along the rim of it. I ran into the workshop at full gallop and dashed up the stairs, waving to shouts of good morning as I went. I walked as fast as I could, burst through my office door and turned the desk calendar around. It’s true, tomorrow is Christmas Eve! Where has the time gone? Have I been so preoccupied with toys, shopping, emails and letters,the everyday goings on and the anticipation to notice it actually has finally gotten here?

As I sat at my desk checking the lists and checking them twice I heard a lot of shouts of delight outside my window. I looked out and there was a group of elfrin playing sinizleball. It’s our version of baseball. Grubby’s diamond shaped plaque in the sidewalk of town square was home plate. It has been home plate since I was a wee one. Sneaky’s candy cane signpost was first base, Marv’s Dress Store light post was second base and Huggles’ pinwheel stand was 3rd base. Anything that crossed over Burnt Coconut Ave. was a home run and all windows were foul balls. Ho! Ho! Ho! Times change, sometimes the base positions change, but sinizleball will always be sinizleball. I watched for awhile, almost forgetting to finish up all the lists and finalize the orders for the workshop for the season. All the elves will start working on packing the toys and gifts in the sleigh in just about one hour. It’s time for me to go get ready.

The answer to yesterday’s Trivia is:
