I'm wandering the world in various hazes of fuzziness, due to trying out new prescription for contacts, which is NOT better than old ones. Yesterday I couldn't recognize a friend halfway down the block. Today I put my old contacts back in. Nevertheless, I'm having a good Christmas so far. I've bought most of my presents, and in the last couple of days, we:
Put lights on the outside tree and decorated the inside tree, with NO cross words!
Did a crossword, for that matter.
Went to see a friend who'd just had surgery, then stopped by a neighborhood party, tonight--nice to see some old faces and some new ones. I had a very good talk with a young woman from Cameroon about her realization that her culture had a lot to treasure and her longing to go back and help there. I had thought before that she was just into money and clothes--glad I saw her differently.
Made the site for my husband's book work, sort of.
Looked at all it's going to take to do the living and dining rooms: strip grasscloth, patch plaster, clean, sand, paint...pulled covers back over head
Walked to Dollar Tree and bought junk we didn't need--but it's only $1! How can we resist gold ribbon, baskets, lint roller, locarb bars, ornament hangers, sponges, spare reading glasses (blue plastic with pink dots--really), corned beef hash, and toothpaste?
Sold fireworks, but not many, to benefit the Dharma Center. We should run a Dollar Tree, instead.
Helped my writing buddy with her computer, and she gave me cilantro seeds.
Added a nice murder to first chapter of my first book and tried to think of new title.
Murder, fireworks, lint rollers, Cameroon. It's a good time of year.
