I wanted to spend December doing all the things I love, plus a few new things. I’m trying, but there are only so many days in the month and availability is a challenge. Cookie decorating party? Sure, but trying to find a date for it? Impossible. Get together for a holiday lunch? Sure. When? We need at least two more weekends in December or we really do need to start doing these things in November. Anyone else with me?
Slowly. Slowly. That is how the Christmas decorations are going. We’ve had rain every weekend since Thanksgiving so The Hub has not put any of it up, but he has taken it down from the attic now so I can at least get the tree up.
It’s a busy week full of fun things.
- My VP’s retirement party on Monday
- A much-needed haircut on Tuesday
- Two winter concerts for choir, Thursday and Friday
- The choir party on Saturday
- The High School ministry party on Sunday
I am reading The Family Upstairs by Lisa Jewell. It’s a page-turner because at this point, the story could go anywhere.
We have Verizon and they offered us Disney Plus free for a year so we signed up. I wasn’t sure if we’d use it but I’ve been loving it for all the classic movies it has (The Apple Dumpling Gang, Herbie (The Love Bug), etc.) plus all of the classics out of the vault like Snow White and Sleeping Beauty.
Also watching a lot of The Bob Newhart Show. Specifically the Christmas episodes.
I did see The Irishman on Netflix like the rest of the world did Thanksgiving weekend. I love Scorsese but it was so much like Goodfellas.
New Things I’ve Tried:
This Christmas playlist made by someone I follow on Instagram. I love it. It’s a good mix of fun and sophistication.
Time off. I don’t have any time off this week but last week I did and my winter break is just around the corner. As fast as the holiday is approaching, I am still going to do my best to slow it down and enjoy it.
