With your holiday shopping, I mean.
I still have some more to do — some of it online, so I’d better get to it.
I recently had a conversation with a friend, and we both agreed that giving the gifts is way more fun than getting them (although getting them ranks a reeeally close second). It’s great fun for me to try to come up with something that might delight and surprise someone else, or conversely, try to buy exactly what I know the person wants. Although surprises are super-nice, sometimes there’s great satisfaction in getting precisely what you asked for. I like both.
Some random thoughts for your Sunday morning:
- I got up at 6:30 (geez, another instance of sleeping the day away — I have no self-control), and had a sudden desire to get out all the veggies that were likely going to die a slow death in my freezer, throw them in a pot, chop up a few potatoes, add some broth & seasoning, and make a savory soup. Which I did. I’m now having it for breakfast. Of course, I only used the veggies I like (green beans, peas, corn, carrots). I think I’ll eat it for lunch and dinner, too; good day for it.
- We’re going to decorate the Christmas tree this afternoon. I think I’m going to go all gold this year for the color scheme. Should be pretty; I’ll post a photo and let you decide.
- ShopNBC still hasn’t shipped the dreaded new TV. The Thriller is getting impatient. (Maybe he’ll end up telling them to go take a hike, and we’ll go to Detroit instead. Hmmm. Maybe not.)
- The next 9 days are going to be ridiculous. Going to the band concert on the 8th, daytime performance (obligatory nursing home tour) on the 9th, concert on the 10th, $12,000 worth of candles delivered on the 12th, concert on the 15th, Dinner Theatre auditions on the 16th, and all the garbage that happens in between. I know, it’s all stuff I’ve brought on myself and I shouldn’t complain. But I will anyway, k?
There are days, truly, when I wish I were a librarian. Meh, not really.
Happy Sunday, and Go Browns. [Shyeah right.]
PS – BoomR, good to see you back, my friend!
