Christmas shopping has begun!
I finally started my Christmas shopping, and plan to do a little more tonight. I forget how expensive Lush is, but I did find a pre-wrapped $12 gift for T’s sister, some facial cleanser for, um, me, and two soaps for about $10 each. I’ll have them on hand in case my two high school girl friends bring gifts this year. But I’m really hoping to add them to my sister’s gifts instead.
I’m flying home (well, to my sister’s home) tomorrow night (!!!), and will do some power shopping on Thursday for my family, as we are having our first “Christmas” on Friday. I’m not a very good power shopper, but it is what has to be done. Oh procrastination….
My hometown made the national weather news this week for being ridiculously cold. Usually those cold spells don’t hit until mid-February or so, but I guess I’m just lucky. Time to break out the winter gear! California has “a different kind of cold”, or that is what I’ve been told. Yes, the kind of cold that really isn’t all that cold, but when you are spoiled 350 days I year… I guess it can be called cold.
