Finally I don't feel so Scrooge like.  Rick bought a cd player yesterday and I got to listen to some of my favorite Christmas music today.  First up was Tori Amos' Christmas album, Snow Angel got me going.    Next I finished all my painting, got my Christmas dishes out and bought red carnations for the table.  I am on a roll!

I am almost through with shopping.  We are going to see The Nutcracker tomorrow night and will bring our tree in Sunday and decorate it.  And we will help Jordan find his Charlie Brown tree tomorrow and decorate it.

Today has been cold and damp, perfect Christmas weather.  We bought several gifts at our local Books AMillion store today.  I love shopping there and we always end our trip with a coffee from their  Joe Muggs Coffee shop.  I had a gingerbread mocha today which was awesome.

This evening coming home we drove slow so we could look at everyone's Christmas decorations.
I love the lights, people get so creative.

Tomorrow as you scurry about, remember to spread joy and share kindness. 


  1. It looks like you are doing very well with your Christmas preparations. Have a great weekend.
    Hugs, Julia

  2. You are doing very well with your Christmas plans. I do like the idea of gingerbread mocha, might have to see if I can buy one here or try and make one, but not today as its 38C in the shade and I'm still baking and cleaning....uughhhh!
