What I Did on Christmas Day
It's from a piece of window trim and some old door knobs. It only took me 1/2 an hour, tops. Why has it taken me a year to get done?
I'll probably send a set of 5 north to my brother and his family in Canada. My parents tend to drive up on a whim, so it's best to have everything gathered that I want sent up. I don't seem to think far enough in advance to plan for mailing/shipping time to get gifts there before Christmas. Good thing they don't get too hung up on dates, I don't think I'll be able to change that at my age.
It's been good having a break from work, but my sleeping schedule is messed up. If I'm awake before noon, I drag. I take a short nap, and then I'm up till 4 am again. Sigh. It's probably best that the holidays are over and I can get on a regular schedule. Just go to work, sleep, go to work, sleep, etc. Makes for a dull life, but I guess it is what it is at this point. One daughter is heading back to college tomorrow, she's got work hours scheduled. The other daughter is still recovering from wisdom tooth surgery and I'm not sure when she'll head back~ probably before the weekend so she can party on New Years with friends...
The son is putting in hours at work over his break. He also had his wisdom teeth removed, so has had this week off. Pretty sure he'll be around until he can get back into his dorm the second week of January.
Weather is still great here. Warm by South Dakota standards, no snow as the bits we've gotten pretty much melted. It's a bit windy here, but that's ok as long as there isn't snow!
All for now~ JULIE
