Currently Reading: O. M. G!! I loved both Breath of Magic and Touch of Magic! Today I hope to read Whispers of Magic and Anny's Magnolia. And Elvin Magic comes out tomorrow, so I'll be first in line (figuratively, anyway!) to get it in the morning. Yes, I'm still playing the 'birthday card' with my spouse...normally I don't 'milk' it this long, but hey...he only got me BED SOCKS! Soon, I'll download the pics from last Friday and show you that HUGE margarita! Tonight, I'll finally get my chocolate martini and mudslide.
Yesterday, the forecast predicted a nasty mix of sleet and ice. Fortunately, today they have tweaked it some, and later in the afternoon we're supposed to only get rain! I'll take rain over snow and ice any day!
This means my postponed Christmas party with my writer's group is still on for tonight! One member of our group didn't get the update on the 5th and spent several hours waiting for us at the ice cream parlor. We had moved it to my house at the last minute, and we found out four days later he had made the two hour trip unexpectedly. We knew he wasn't expected back in town until the 20th, so we made plans for tonight. Hopefully the rain won't put a damper on the festive spirit tonight!
2 Shopping Days Left!
Gifts bought: 20 or so. Still have one more trip to Walmart, for a couple of items in the electronics section. I tried to get them the other night, but the crowd managed to destroy my mood to shop. Have you ever had that happen? Be gung-ho to buy, buy, buy...only to have rude people take all the joy out of it? Now I remember WHY I bought so many things on Amazon earlier in the month. Should have ordered ALL of it, and stayed away from Walmart! Note to self: DO THIS NEXT YEAR!
Cookies baked: 0, but check back tomorrow. We still have yet to make the Rice Krispy Treats. And the boys found the marshmallows last night, so unless I follow through on my promise, the older one is going to consider them all his. And yes, I still have to finish the chocolate chips...and maybe indulge in some chocolate covered pretzels.
