We’re getting a nice soaking of rain today , and tahoe is getting snow!!! Yeah! I’m sure all the ski resorts are very happy.
we walked ING rain and it was nice. Not a pounding rain just a nice gentle rain.
Today, I’m sorting thru Christmas lists. Mostly done. We’re giving money to our son, as he buys everything himself. My daughter is getting an electric guitar. Our budget for her $250, so she’ll,have to ante up the balance. We’ll add in some from my $ and dads $ as there’s nothing we need or really want. Plus we just spent $600 on gravel for our driveway, so merry Christmas !!
We don’t have much family. A brother I give $ to and my sister a few little gifts. That’s it. No parents etc.
we don’t really gift and friends . When I was at the library I gave some little things as gifts like homemade jams etc, but that’s it. So our holidays are pretty stress free. We also love to celebrate Hanukkha ( no we’re not Jewish, but atheists) but I love lighting the candles and the meaning of the lights.
Weird but that’s us.
I’m thankful for so much . So on this thanksgiving , here’s my list:
I’m thankful for my wonderful family, my husband is so stellar, and my children are the best.
I’m thankful, we have a roof over our heads and food to eat.
I’m thankful for my husbands job and the insurance it allows me to have to pay for extremely expensive drugs, like revlimid.
I’m thankful to feel pretty good overall.
I’m thankful I have a little job to keep me involved .
theres so much more too, but those are the big ones.
Tonight starts Hanukkha. As I’ve said we are Not Jewish, but I love the idea of the Festival of Lights and candles. And of course, latkes!
So yesterday and today is our annual booksale. We went Thursday and set up. Everything will be $2 a bag. That’s a great deal for hardbacks etc. I’m going in early to buy some raffle tickets. Then when I close at 2 pm we will be boxing everything and taking them to the local thrift stores.
Walked this am 2 miles. I’m feeling better but these drugs are taking a toll. Tonight’s my last night on dex for 2 weeks. I’m looking forward to it.
I’m still struggling with where to put my sister when she comes to visit next week. As most of you know my house is very small, and there is no extra room. So someone has to give up there room and use the studio. It’s nice out there but no bathroom , obviously , and so I’m just not sure what to do. Plus, I thought I’d buy a new futon instead of a couch but is that what I really want. Basically everything would look the same and I’m trying to freshen up our front room.so…….
