Wedding bells

The big day!

I'm so nervous.

Mark your calenders!

Finally there are invitations, and Schreber sends them out to a lot of old friends from the Nexus without being sure if they will ever reach them. There are so many friends he has made that don't seem to be around. Still there are wedding invitations to old friends and new ones, and he very very nervously waits for the big day.

January 27th, 2010

Schreber works from home most of the time but he has started to learn to keep his paperwork in the sun room on the coffee table there. That way he can sit on his favorite old falling apart couch and not have to clean up every time Sarah wants to bake or cook. This means the kitchen is neat and tidy. Putting the tea kettle on warms things up even though it is cold on Shell Beach this time of year. Sarah has baked bread this week and even giving baked goods away to friends all the time they always have lots left over.
Schreber sits at the kitchen table and checks up on Nexus posts and waits for Irma.
This is the year I'm getting married.

Christmas gifts!

((Sorry this post is so late! and backdated.))

Now that Schreber has been so busy he does not go to the Nexus much anymore, there are old friends he has not seen for a long time, but that does not mean they are forgotten. He tries to PINpoint gifts to last known locations/pinpoint addresses and hopes for the best.

what_if_alice is sent packets of instant cocoa and a stuffed rabbit.

octopus_hubris is sent tea and packets of instant cocoa and a teeny bottle of bourbon is in there all in a pretty gift basket.

hypnosnake is sent a couple of watermelons and Schrebs had to find a world where they were in season.

onlystraw is sent tea and packets of instant cocoa, cookies from Sarah, and a little handbound book that Schreber has recorded some of his nightmares in.

br_oke_n_city get packets of instant cocoa, a basket of cookies, and warm sweaters for Charlotte and the Doctor. At least they did not have to guess at the size for him.

courtneycrumrin and a_crumrin get tea, packets of instant cocoa, and gift certificates for an online book store.

People in the city are a lot easier to get to, and friends who aren't in the city but still visit often enough. They get their gifts in visits around Christmas.

allmyyesterdays gets tea and packets of instant cocoa and a teddy bear with glasses.

sthenyaer gets tea and a teddy bear and a gift certificate for an online book store.

tictoctictoc gets one of those big canisters of instant cocoa and a gift certificate for an online book store.

janitor_thorn gets tea, packets of instant cocoa, cookies, a nice box of colored pencils and a blank sketchbook.

harley_is_love gets a gift certificate for an online book store and a basket with candy canes and cookie mix. April gets a teddy bear with a vest and glasses.

call_me_rat gets a nice leatherbound journal that has lines set up for writing music in, and packets of instant cocoa.

anna_was_emma gets a gift certificate for an online book store and a set of watercolor pencils.

j_murdoch gets packets of instant cocoa and a potted flower that glows at night and wooden toy boat. Because.

On Christmas morning Orwell and Cleo and the new winged kitten get wet cat food as a treat, and also to keep them from attacking things like packages before they're unwrapped.
For Sarah there is a leatherbound blank journal, a stuffed toy cat, a lacy nightgown that Schreber definitely blushed over when he bought it, and a pair of earrings that look like little leaves with tiny curly wires like vines.

green still life
One of the joys of the holiday season is that you don't realize just how many friends you have until you start working up a list of them for cards and gifts.

One of the terrors of the season is trying to actually shop for them.

Is anyone getting tired of me sending books yet?

dreaming of trees
It really starts to look like Christmas when we've got all the tree lots full but that was a lot of work. I think I might take the day off to sleep tomorrow.

Thanksgiving preparations

shy smile
I think Thanksgiving may be a little quieter this year, it sounds like Harley, Rat and April want a family gathering, which is understandable right now. I feel bad for being out of touch if they've had some strange times lately. We're going to need a bigger house and a longer table if our gatherings get any bigger though. If you three change your minds you're still invited, Sarah always makes so much. Also invited are Thorn, Tom, Irma, Melinda, Cornelius, John, and Anna, am I missing anyone?

cowboy grin!
Halloween was... very strange.

It might be nice to hold onto the cowboy and saloon girl costumes though.

She said yes!

I'm so glad to have that over with!
