|it's icy out there, taken through my screened in window|
Thankful : that my sister has made it through the week, with some improvement, little, but some. Also thankful for my sons hanging out at home this season. Thankful for Amazon.ca, love not having to shop in a mall if I can help it.
Looking Forward to: The joyous screams of the wee ones when Santa comes for cake and coffee, and treats.
Reading: Lost Letters, which I have temporarily misplaced and am unable to finish. This book will complete my What's in a Name Challenge 2013 and my Postal Challenge 2013, and quite probably be chalked up to War Through the Generations, New Author Challenge and most importantly Reading off my Shelves.
Plans for the Day: Well, I'd like to bake a bit, and get my stuff ready for our Christmas Eve meal, all the while tiding up enough to sit at a semi-clear area, ( I'm still in boxes). I'm going to send my husband to Cosco, (punishment for not letting me drive). And I'm going to make him come up with a gift for his mother.
What will I actually get done, probably little. I'm really losing my mojo.
My son (the author) and I watched Misery, with Kathy Bates and James Caan, last night. So today as he was about to head out to walk to work, it's VERY ICY here, I insisted he take a cell phone, (probably the only young person in the world without one) in case he had an accident and someone took him in and made him write a novel etc. He took the cell phone and called that he had arrived in one piece. He works at Home Depot and he's such a responsible young man. I told him to call in, and he wouldn't since it's an emergency station, they have a generator and stuff in the event of "need". They'll miss him when he gets published, and doesn't work there anymore.
Then there is my other son...asleep in his bed all toasty and warm. He works nights. Closed down last night for Christmas break.
