Weather: Sunny and 60's. Great day for working in the yard, and putting up the Christmas lights, even the icicle ones.
Listening to: George Strait Christmas Collection. Classic and good. This choice of music would make some people crazy, but I find it so relaxing. His voice is so mellow.
Thinking about: my kids, what I want for Christmas, cleaning the house, finishing my school work.
Seeing all the great Thanksgiving photos on different blogs (if I have time, I'll come back and put in the links to some of the best), I have decided what I want for Christmas: a digital camera. I try every year to get something for the whole family and I think this would be the best choice. I was thinking about a portable DVD player for the car, but I think everyone would use the camera more. If I have enough money somehow, I'll get both.
Last year was a good Christmas for me. I was revisiting some memories with a friend today, of a crazy fun shopping trip to Mall St. Matthews, where the two of us just set out and made a day of it. And exchanging gifts with the same friend in front of a beautiful all-white Christmas tree. I wish I had room in my house for a "theme" tree. We just have the one, all-purpose, multi-color tree, in the living room, filled with every ornament we've ever owned or made. That white tree was so beautiful, and there was a fireplace nearby. I wish I had a picture of it. But I will say, that even though I had good times with that friend, it takes more than a couple of great memories to make a long-term friendship. Although I am still friends with that friend, I am looking for more than "Hallmark" moments.
Finally, something to make you laugh:
