~ The other night on the way home from Target, a very hungry Ms. Claus got into the stocking candy she’d just bought for the kids. Now Ms. Claus has to replace it. It’s a low point for Ms. Claus. UPDATE: The candy has been replaced, and Ms. Claus wised up and bought herself some this time. 🙂 For the children’s sake, of course.
~ I recently participated in a political survey. Here’s one of the questions and my response:
Don’t you wonder about the folks who would answer “Don’t know/No opinion”?
~ Speaking of surveys, I’ve noticed a trend in questions about race/ethnicity. It’s “what do you consider yourself to be?” That’s what it’s come to — what race I consider myself to be? Well, my skin color is pretty much as white as you can get, but I consider myself to be a wise Latina. So there!
~ Because I’ve purchased some Auburn items from Amazon, they’ve suggested that I might also like several University of Alabama items. Um, I don’t think so. They need to straighten that mess out before they start working on the drone delivery.
~ On Saturday, I enjoyed a day at home. It was a rainy day, perfect for Christmas lights, wrapping presents, drinking coffee, and watching movies. All that was missing was Auburn football. I can’t wait until January 6th!
~ Right now my favorite combination of flavors is caramel, dark chocolate, and sea salt. THIS!
~ My peeps are coming home for Christmas break in two more sleeps!
~ I love my little town. The downtown is so cute with its unique shops and restaurants, bricks streets, and classy Christmas decorations. When I walk out of my office at lunch time and hear church bells pealing, I feel like I’m in Europe — with the benefit of English.
~ Speaking of Europe, my time there has made me ever so grateful for the conveniences of the U.S. that I once took for granted. Grocery shopping, parking, laundry, driving — all of these are sooooo much easier here than there. Plus, we have drive-thrus!
~ My hair stylist (who is AWESOME!) stays booked up well in advance, so I’ve already made all of my appointments with her for 2014. As she was calling out the dates and times to me recently so that I could get them on my calendar, I began to wonder just what in the world would be going on in my life in, say, August. The past couple of years have been filled with surprises — some devastating and some wonderful — and I don’t expect that to change. Still, when I wrote down the August appointment, a flicker of hope and excitement lit up my heart. That was a gift from God.
~ I really want to get back to my photography hobby. I’ve decided to tackle another 365 project, beginning on January 1st. Last time I posted my photos to Facebook, but this time I think I’ll do it over here.
Well, I think that’s quite enough for now.
Merry Christmas, y’all!
