Two Mondays Before Christmas Eve

If you’ve finished your holiday shopping, I don’t want to hear about it. I got the tree up. Okay…I plugged in the lights, since I never took it down last year. And I might get the mantle decorated. And the outside lights on the porch and along the walkway. When it warms up a little.

Speaking of, that bit winter storm that was supposed to hit over the weekend? Yeah…no. Missed us totally. Other areas are getting hammered. We got cold air, some spit, and…not much else. That’s the fun of weather around here and just goes to show that computers are no match for Mother Nature.

I hate to admit this, but my reading and TV habits are pretty darn boring these day. I’m still doing the re-listen to Jayne Castle’s Harmony series. And about the only TV I’m watching is part of the Live PD franchise. Well, that and college football, which segues into the Army-Navy game. Army won. Yay. I dated a cadet one year and even got to go to Homecoming at the Point. That was a memorable weekend to be sure. Also, the prayer the Army chaplain gave? Dude! Goosebumps. I was ready to go enlist. If you didn’t watch the game, take a minute to watch the prayer.

As Colonel Pawlikowski said, let this game begin. It’s a new week, one leading into a season that should reflect the best in us. I’m going to do my best this week to do what is right, what is good, what needs to be done. I hope y’all will join me.

  1. I only have three people to buy for and all their stuff has to be shipped, so I have to be done by now or I’d be screwed. =op Yay for plugging in the tree. I still haven’t done xmas cards. Too much stuffs going on right now with the editing and the spreadsheeting and the year-ending. Bleh.

    Hubs was an Army man, so yay! Yay for Live PD! And yay for reading, even if it’s re-reading. I just finished a re-read of Phyllis Whitney’s The Stone Bull. (Not as good as I remembered. :sadface:)

    Yep, joining you in what’s good and what’s right, but mostly in what needs doing. So much needs doing… Argh. Here’s to a good week for us all. :hugs:

      Christmas needs to be moved so it’s not at the end of the year. Too much stuff!!!! I’m probably looking at…New Year’s cards. Or…Vanlentines…or…emails/facebook. 🙄

      I haven’t read Whitney in years and years. Not sure how she’d hold up today. Mary Stewart’s work does for me, for the most part. And Andre Norton, for the most part. 😆 Now, let’s go do what needs doing!

      • I agree. Let’s move it to August. No holidays that month. Most of my re-reads of Whitney hold up pretty well. Stone Bull was written weird – present, past, and backstory all jumbled around. I think she was ‘trying something’ and it didn’t work out. I really need to read some Stewart, since I never have. I have an anthology of hers, but I haven’t touched it yet.

        • Silver James says:

          I have several Steward favorites: The Moon-Spinners (totally different from the Disney movie), Airs Above Ground, her Merlin trilogy. There’s also Touch Not the Cat and Nine Coaches Waiting. Give her anthology a try. She wrote not only romantic suspense (heavy on the suspense with romantic overtones) but some decent magical/paranormal type suspense.

          The problem with August is back-to-school and occasionally labor day. There’s gotta be a month that needs a big holiday… 😉
