It's 8:21 pm on Tuesday evening. It's dark, but then it's been dark since just before 5:00. The weather was mild today, cloudy for most of it, but with temperatures in the mid-50s. The wind is picking up now, bringing the promised rain closer. There is something like a 90% chance of it tomorrow.
Reading...The Cowboy Cookie Challenge by Lori Wilde. It's basically a Hallmark Christmas movie in book form.
Listening to...a whole lot of Christmas music at work. Today we listened to a playlist on YouTube that had songs from the 40's that I'd never heard of.
Watching...Christmas on Mistletoe Lake. It's a Lifetime movie.
Loving...that we ate the last of the Thanksgiving leftovers tonight and the refrigerator is finally cleaned out.
Thankful...for so much! Our daughter and grandchildren are finally over the flu and back to work and school. Our son-in-law has something now, but probably not the flu since he doesn't seem to be as sick as they were. I'm thankful for my work and the people I help each day. They are so sweet and loving. I don't think I've ever been hugged so much! I am also thankful that they have been keeping me mostly in the adult training program rather than in the shredding department so I haven't had to be on my feet all day. Oh, and I'm thankful that Jasper is really settling in at our daughter's and is waaaay happier than he was here. Maine Coons do not like to be alone. Lesson learned (the hard way).
Enjoying...the Christmas tree.
Looking forward to...the women's tea at church this Saturday, starting the Christmas baking and candy making, and finishing the decorating of a column in the dining hall at work. There are 6 columns and 6 staff members. We each have a team of consumers (what we call those we work with). We have to decorate a column and the administrative staff will judge them. The winning team gets to go out for lunch with the big boss...which means escaping work for a couple of hours. Big incentive all around! Anyway, my team's column is going to be the tree lot from A Charlie Brown Christmas. Charlie and whoever I'm able to draw will be in the foreground with the little tree and it will be captioned, "It's not what's under the tree that matters, it's who is around it." I promise I'll take pictures when it's done!
