There’s a lot I could say about our current numbers here in LA County but I will refrain. You’ve all seen the news. It’s not looking great. We are following the recommendations as much as possible. We go out for walks and let me tell you, they are much needed. I’ve never craved sunlight before but these days, it’s all I want. We are doing alright. I told my dentist this past weekend when he asked how we were that we are still employed and healthy. What more could we want?
By the time you read this, my daughter’s audition with PACE University in New York will be in full swing. The three of us, the Hub, the pup and myself will be out and about trying to keep active without running into people. The weather is warm and is supposed to stay that way through most of this week. Should be easy to spend more time outside.
My youth group is on break so my evening is free!! Time for a Christmas movie. Maybe Christmas with the Kranks.
Christmas is this week and we still don’t know what we will be doing. We normally go to my In-Law’s place for Christmas Eve but that of course has been called off.
Christmas day my son is off work but if we drive up to see him, nothing will be open so that would be hard meal wise. We will probably just stay home and then drive-up after Christmas to see him for the day. It’s a beach town so a fish taco on the beach is really all we need, you know?
You will all be so proud of me!! I am almost done with Pride and Prejudice. It’s like my white whale. Years and years it’s taunted me and no matter how many times I tried to read it, it did not work for me. This time, it’s clicking. Pandemic reading? The need for something lighter? Who knows, but it’s happening! I just need to finish it and review it before the end of the year and I can check that puppy off my list.
A funny little aside. I was reading it in the park as you can see above. It was beautiful and golden out and everything was so perfect. Then, a bird pooped on my book. Bird poo on my book is so 2020. How fitting. Do not zoom in on my hand as I currently have HAG hands since I do not have access to my fancy hand cream.
We have been creeping our way through my Christmas movie list. Friday night we watched Deck the Halls. We have seen it before but this time I fell asleep pretty early on. Last night we watch Love Actually. Who doesn’t love that Hugh Grant dance scene?
- As you get older, you appreciate a good dental visit. No issues this past Saturday.
- I’ve gotten a lot of “business” out of the way this past week so I am finally in a place to begin enjoying my time off. For a good vacation, you really need a vacation BEFORE the vacation to do all the required things just so you can relax.
- The vaccine. I’ve heard from many nurse friends and a few teachers that they’ve gotten the vaccine this past week. This is really good news.
That’s it from me. I hope you are all having fun choosing your first book of the year. I’ve chosen mine and will be posting about it soon. Take care of yourselves!! Don’t chance it if you don’t need to go out. We are all getting tired of being at home but make it cozy and pleasant and try to enjoy this forced downtime.
