Every year at this time I take a week off from the daily grind of number crunching to get my shopping done and decorate the house. Except on Thursday I have to go to the office and attend the Executive Committee meeting and give them an update on the audit and other financial matters. Oh well, it goes with the territory.
Believe me, it takes a week to decorate. When Amy and Kari lived at home, we split the decorating between us; they did the upstairs, and I did the downstairs. Now, the task is much larger, and requires more time to complete. The first thing I put out is my North Pole Village. It gets set up in the dining room garden window. But that will have to wait until Wednesday, because tomorrow we are off for two days of shopping in beautiful Spokane (I'll take the camera with me Robin and get some pics for you).
I'm really starting to get into the holiday spirit now. Today was a busy day. Spent the morning doing a little shopping. At noon I headed for Amy's home to attend the annual Ornament party. It's a lot of fun and there's always a couple of ornaments that everyone steals back and forth. Mine is soooooooooooo cute. It's a snowman, made of glass cubes with the letters B-R-R-R in glitter on the body.
Then it was off to Christine's home (a co-worker) for some holiday cheer and a game of Dominoes. What fun! I've never played it before and now I'm hooked. May have to pick up some for myself tomorrow.
Well, that's all for now. Got to get up early tomorrow for the drive up to Spokane.
12/14 7:57 p.m. - Just got home and there was a message from work. Good news! The meeting was cancelled for lack of a quorum. So I'm free!!!!!
