Twas the first of December and all through the house;
Not a creature was stirring ….
Not even any dog farts.
I just say that because the kids are both out, the dogs are quietly laying at my feet, John is watching television downstairs, the dishes are done and laundry can wait. I could be blogging but I have absolutely nothing to blog about. I could be doing Jillian workout, but not yet.
I looked through pictures; sometimes that inspires me.
But the lack of inspiration does give me an excuse to share some wonderful sunrise and sunset photos I have taken from the car going to and from work this week. Not with my bridge camera; just the iPhone. Talk about artwork from God!
So back to it being the first of December… I have done nothing toward Christmas shopping beside one gift I picked up awhile back just because. I have no motivation toward it. I have to be in Florida next week and Texas the following week, so I am really feeling the crunch. And when I get stressed about shopping, I shut down. I’ll pin the boys down this weekend; have them make a list and hopefully I can extract some reasonable items from those lists. For some reason the boys have mistaken the Christmas tree for a money tree.
I have been perusing the cyber ads and found a lot of things that I would like to have for Christmas. I am the easiest person in the world to buy for! I want what many horse women want: warm riding gloves, a new ear band, maybe some Mountain Horse outerwear or those big rubber winter boots. Perhaps a down vest or a fleece saddle seat cover. If they were really thinking, they would have told me to hold off buying a new GPS. Maybe they’ll read this blog before they hit Walmart on December 24th & 1/2.
I’d like to ride a bit tomorrow. Last day we’ll see temps in the forties for some time, they say.
