This and That

December 22, 2006

For me there is only one shopping day left until the Christmas festivities begin. It snuck right up on this holiday shopper! I have most of the gifts taken care of–wrapped, even!–but I still have a couple of gift cards to pick up and some pretty bags for candles I’m giving some people. I’ve been more than blessed with several special little somethings (and a few bigger somethings) from church members, after school kids, and even Jonas’ teacher who quilted me a beautiful set of pillows as a thank you for helping her on Fridays. All of these gifts are a wonderful blessing–mostly because they represent some very special people.

And while I was writing this, there was a commercial on from the AD Council. It ended with, “Don’t pass gas…take it outside!” That’s when I started paying attention. LOL. I was like–Wha??? So I googled that phrase and realized that they are talking about the cloud of gases that result from smoking. Ha!

Anyway, it’s not looking very much like a white Christmas. It’s warm outside! And muddy. Is it going to snow where any of the readers of this blog live? Let me know so I can live vicariously through you!

Jonas has spent all day in his pajamas. That sounds like a great Friday to me! I spent some of the morning in my pajamas, but I hate not taking a shower first thing so eventually I had to give it up and get ready for the day. I’ve had a lovely day! I read a book just for fun, I got to talk to Kelly from college on the phone, and I wrapped some presents. Now I’m watching Oprah and blogging. I’m watching Oprah because it’s either her or Martha Stewart and I chose the lesser of two evils. At least Oprah likes kids and helps people in other countries. I bet if all of the South African children that Oprah helps went to Martha Stewart’s house, she’d get mad if they forgot to use a coaster and smudged her decoupaged coffee tables.

My sister, the infamous Carly, is in town. My brother, Jeff, will be down on Sunday. Both of them will head up to Merrillville to spend some time with our Dad on Tuesday.

It’s about to be a busy couple of days! I hope that each of you have a blessed and merry Christmas!
