Ahhhh, the frantic pace has now come to a slowdown. I shipped out the last batch of Christmas stockings yesterday. We sold 149 stockings this year - 5 more than last year.
We had our last show of the season.It was a very cute place to setup and considering the lack of traffic, we didn't do too badly, but no one was out yesterday. The streets of downtown Ithaca were empty. It's funny to feel like there is something I should be doing (other than cleaning up this place), but now I can start working on my own stuff. I have some orders to fill, but I'm not racing the clock now.
Word of the day:
Second Sunday of Advent

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Luke 3:1-6.
In the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, when Pontius Pilate was governor of Judea, and Herod was tetrarch of Galilee, and his brother Philip tetrarch of the region of Ituraea and Trachonitis, and Lysanias was tetrarch of Abilene, during the high priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came to John the son of Zechariah in the desert. He went throughout (the) whole region of the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, as it is written in the book of the words of the prophet Isaiah: "A voice of one crying out in the desert: 'Prepare the way of the Lord, make straight his paths. Every valley shall be filled and every mountain and hill shall be made low. The winding roads shall be made straight, and the rough ways made smooth, and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.'"
