Christmas shopping

Category: Holidays | Posted: Thu Nov 30, 2006 7:11 pm

It is COLD here today so we may go and do a little Christmas shopping. When we lived in Wisconsin and the boys were small we always hired a babysitter about a week before Christmas and went to dinner and then shopping. It feels like winter here now but thankfully no snow. I'm not with Toni on the snow. It's pretty on the top of the mountain but that's where I like it or on Christmas cards. Last week I went and bought gift cards at the book store for the Wisconsin crew. I was going to do the same for the California ones but they may be coming to Arizona at the end of the month so I may just wait and take them shopping. Erin will be eleven in April and I bet she would like to go shopping with us. Tom is going to run a 24 hour race so they are coming a day early. We are going to go down to Goodyear and find a motel so they won't have to drive two hours back and forth to visit and not have much time to spend here.
I applied for and got the days off that I needed. Ha, I just thought. I will only have to work one day between Christmas and New Year's. We get Monday and Tuesday off for Christmas and I will work Wednesday and then have five days off. Great!!! Though I can believe there will be a ton of books to put away when I get back. It just works that way. I'm just now getting caught up from the Thanksgiving two days off.I made peanut butter chocolate chip cookies yesterday. I think I will mix some refrigerator dough for cookies in a bit and then they will be ready when I want to bake them.
Chance is running around the yard barking because there is a white chicken on the street. She knows chickens are not supposed to be in the street. If it would just come into the yard she could have chicken for dinner. I made banana muffins for breakfast. She didn't have time to come in for any.
I checked on my plants. They are doing okay in the exercise room. The begonia in the swan looks a little wilted but it should have come inside. It wasn't much warmer inside when we got home last night. The comforter felt good. I think this is the coldest it's been since we left Wisconsin. It's still November. I wonder what happened to the warmer than normal winter.
Last night DR started the truck when he went down about ten minutes before the library closed. When we went out and the other ladies saw the truck running they said that tomorrow night they would all give DR the keys to their vehicles and he could warm them up, too. Dr said, "Yeah, fat chance!"
The wind had stopped for the most part so the drive home was easier.
The City of Lights display is open so one night after we get off from work we will go and drive through it.
There are all sorts of lighted scenes and tunnels of lights that you can drive through. It's free and stays open from 6pm to midnight.
We got the first Christmas card today, from my sister. We usually get the first card from her daughter. But her daughter has three girls and now works as a pharmacy tech so doesn't have the time she used to have to do them. I used to do mine on Thanksgiving weekend. I have addresses on them but that's about it.
I just have to put a note or letter in each one. My dad always said, if you can't find the time to write something in them you might as well not send them.
I guess it stuck so all of them get a note or letter.
Maybe I'd better go start on that instead of rambling on here for pages. Dooley
