Cross one holiday off the list and lets get the other over with soon. I am not much for holidays…I can become depressed very easily. Turn the calendar from one month to the next already.
Why? I don’t like shopping…good thing Far Guy says he will help or I would just write checks. Much of the shopping I do will be online. I must ready myself for those early morning phone calls from the Post Office about the delivery of said parcels. I don’t like the commercialism that accompanies Christmas. I like homemade…simple..put some candy and some peanuts in a bag with an apple and I am good. I abhor the Christmas music in the stores that began weeks ago …I may start wearing ear plugs.
Although I am not cold and heartless or wish anyone misfortune I am a little grinchy.
So much so that my daughter Jen bought me a new winter hat.
Chance is a marvelous hat model, as you can see he was thrilled.
I will wear it proudly shopping. I might even wear it whilst decorating the trees. I will wear it baking cookies. I could wear it from now until Christmas Day…whilst I finish up some of my homemade gifts.
The Christmas Spirit is hard to find some days. I will be searching for the Christmas Spirit all month long.
