The Boar and I did yard work this weekend. What I hope is the last leaf bagging extravaganza for the year. And as usual, we vowed that next year we would hire landscapers to do it. We shall see when the time comes if we make good on our threats ……
I also managed to make a big dent in the Christmas Shopping list. I was beginning to panic slightly because not only had I not gotten much shopping done, I didn’t have any ideas about what to buy. Yes, I am one of those annoying do-ahead people. Don’t hate me – you should be grateful for people like me – that makes one less body, one less pair of elbows to bump into at the mall on the day after Thanksgiving! I spent a few hours on the laptop – thank God for online shopping – how did we ever manage without it? Do you know of any especially good sites? Here is one of my faves.
Speaking of Thanksgiving …. a list of upcoming happy good things:
- D#1 gets home tomorrow!! I can’t wait to see her!!
- This is the first time in a long while that I will not be doing the basting. We will be going to my MiL’s for our turkey dinner. I am totally enjoying the prospect!
- I am also looking forward to making Aunt Mabel’s Cranberry Pie Cake and taking it over to MiL’s house.
