I believe this is the first Monday in December (ironically the last one too) that it hasn’t rained. The sun was even shining for a few hours today. Now it is getting a little gray again, but it doesn’t look like rain at all.
I had to take my car in for service today. Routine stuff. But through a failure in communication my paperwork was marked for pick up for late this afternoon. So it wasn’t ready when I went to pick it up. I came home and spent a few hours writing. Then when I went back I had to wait because it still wasn’t done. Not pleased, but it is New Year’s Eve. I saw a few minutes of the GA Tech vs. U of Southern California’s Sun Bowl game in El Paso, TX. GA Tech was killing USC until right before I left the dealership. They allowed USC to score a touchdown. UGH! I was so enjoying Kiffin not being able to see his team score. Oh well…
Now I’m back to writing. Many pages to go before the day is through.
The last Sunday in 2012. We had two wonderful messages at church today preparing us for the new year. Our associate and youth pastors did an excellent job as this was also the 5th Sunday of the month. Are you prepared for the new year? Will you be taking God with you as we face 2013? I know I will.
Woke 6 a.m. and finished housecleaning. By 10 a.m. I had showered and started laundry, settled in to write. By noon I was headed to do returns with my mom. Grabbed lunch on the way. Found some great buys on clearance items and finally found new bathroom rugs in my colors. I’ve been looking for months without any luck. All in all it was a good shopping outing. It was cold and spitting snow for a good part of the afternoon. Then it snowed a little harder and I began to think we’d have accumulation, but I don’t think we got more than a 1/8 of an inch at the most.
It’s cold and rainy again today. It’s been like that all week. The skies gray with heavy clouds like it will snow, but it is only teasing us. Don’t wait until I have to go back to work to snow. Do it before Wednesday please.
My son asked today when my Christmas break was over. I think he is tired of me being home with him.
No reading this week. Too busy with after the holidays cleaning and preparing for the New Year to take time to read. However, I have found Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is being aired on Ovation, two episodes a day. I caught hour two and three and discovered some interesting scenes I hadn’t picked up on before.
My son got a Kindle Fire for Christmas to feed his voracious reading appetite, however, as far as I can tell he isn’t using it to read. He’s playing games on it right now.
