I finally did a little Christmas shopping last night. I bought about six of the 40 gifts needed, and once again managed to spend some one myself. My friend Shannon, who put me to shame when it came to shopping, said I shouldn’t feel guilty because it was like buying supplies. I was out of perfume so had to pick up a big refill bottle of Angel from Nordstroms. And at Bath and Body Works, well, they were almost out of my favorite Twisted Peppermint, so I had to pick some up. ;-) And I threw in some slippers and slippers sock, cuz it said they were the “world’s softest” ones, and they were on sale.
After the shopping spree I hung out with my mom up at the hospital. She’s doing so much better. I taught her how to crochet a scarf, um not an easy thing to do while wearing gloves and a mask let me tell you. I’m not that great with the crocheting thing, but I know enough to make a scarf and a hat. She was very pleased with herself.
Oh the big news… Drum roll please… I finished the revisions on Zombies. I have notes back from friends who have already read it, so I’ll be making those changes and then I’ll be DONE. Woot! Raising the hands and doing the happy dance.
Okay… So I did this really wicked thing… I didn’t mean too I swear. Shannon had told me about this cool little Tiffany jewelry case that was in the catalog last night. Came home to find it, but it wasn’t in mine. I left it in the Bathroom, cuz that’s were you look at catalogs, and I hear my husband gasping this morning. Funny. He’s saying things like, “You’ve got to be kidding.” “Oh My God.” “No Way.” I’m laughing so hard I can’t breathe cuz I can’t figure out what he’s doing. Turns out he’s looking at the Tiffany catalog thinking that I’m trying to hint for my Christmas present. Ha! But this is what I’m thinking… When he does finally ask me what I want, and he will about two days before Christmas, when I say “Puppy” (See pics below) it might be a relief that I didn’t say “Diamonds.” ;-0
Do you guys think it will work?
What are you doing this week?
Bought any fun Christmas presents? I found this cool site historictrees.org where you can buy trees/seedlings from historic places. I bought Steve a Magnolia from Graceland (He loves Elvis) and an Oak from Abraham Lincoln’s place. (Don’t tell Steve about his gifts.) :-)
