Bits, Bobs, Smalls, and Smiles



Duck’s Tree.

·       Party season is here.  Last week was his office party.  This week the Auto Museum is having their party – with gift exchange, and the following day is our desert party.  I’m becoming inured to folks deciding not to come after saying they would.
·       Only two Christmas cards have arrived.  It shocked me a bit at first.  Even the card isle at Target…which used to be two sided plus a little, is now only half of one side.  Last year, I sent a few cards, put a picture here, at my other blog, and on Facebook.  That was it.  Same thing this year.  G doesn’t send cards.  He isn’t bah-humbug, he just doesn’t think socially.
·       Lots of cruise ships in port lately.  Regular visits by the mega ships, but Friday there was a really tiny ship.  The Sirena, almost yacht like in size, surprised me.  I follow Peter Knego’s Cruise reportage regularly.  He tells us of all those small river ships I long to take but can’t afford.  Now here was a tiny ship I’d never heard of before.
·       Grumpy has his Christmas Wreath…thank you George for zip tying it on.
·       Still coughing, but my voice returneth.
·       I put signs up at work for the Thursday work crew to NOT shelve books.  PLEASE.  And I put a sign on the broken shelf.  I just don’t want books to fall on customers….please.
·       George is into most of his old clothes.  I am in to all my old pants.  Some of my shirts are a bit tight tho.  Maybe we both need to do upper body exercise…middle body exercise? 
 '     Ate a terribly unhealthy lunch with M&M's....did I say that.
'      Rearranged the whole living room with G's help only for the sofa.  Like it better.
·       Did I say it…life is good right now.  That isn’t small at all.

  2. I would like to get David to take a river cruise, but he's dug in. Duck's tree looks a lot like my little tree. I'm into teeny tiny trees.

  6. We have a much smaller tree this year. I did just a bit of decorating, but we do not have parties, so no need for that. Going out with our neighbors tonight to celebrate the season at a restaurant. Except for the kiddos that is about it.
