Well, it didn't stay cold (OK cool) here for very long, we had a couple of days where it got down in the 40's at night it was a nice break and now it's almost 80 again. Soooo ... no white Christmas here, no snowman on the front lawn but ... you could make a really cool sandman at the beach, if one were so inclined (or had the time). Maybe next week.
Spent yesterday doing a little more shopping, I went alone this time (I get so much more accomplished by myself) just have a few small things to finish up today.
Brittney (my niece) is home from college, we spent the entire evening wrapping together last night. A lot of my stuff was already there because I've done so much of my shopping with my sister, I brought over the rest.
It seems that the preparation work has been the highlight of the season so far, the shopping the wrapping the interruptions to play cards with our friends and neighbors, lunches out with my mother, mall trips with Mandy. The journey's been almost as great as the final destination.
