Today I am . . .
Perfectly happy to be working tomorrow. I’ll have everything ready for Christmas by then, and it’s always kind of fun to welcome babies into the world on a holiday.
Amazed by how simple out Christmas is going to be this year. We’ll be going out for Chinese food with my parents and hardly even hosting anyone at the house. Heck, we might even go see the new Hobbit movie in the afternoon!
Enjoying the sweet silence of a house where teenage boys sleep until late afternoon.
Planning a thrifting route along 82nd Avenue to pick up a few last minute gifts and stocking stuffers.
Relieved that I pretty much caught up on my continuing education for work. Yesterday found me with a patient from 7 A.M. – 3 P.M., but then I was able to motor through a bunch of modules that were due by December 31st. Whew . . . I can now tick that off my to-do list!
Needing to buy molasses and eggs in order to whip up a double batch of my delicious ginger snaps.
Wishing that Portland would dump a bit of snow in time for Christmas.
Super pleased with the painted stool that I made for my younger son’s Christmas present. I chose a Portland Timbers argyle pattern that turned out perfectly. A quick coat of polyurethane to protect the surface and it’s done! (I’d post a photo, but it might show up on my son’s Facebook page.)
Annoyed that one of our cats got shut in our unfinished space for a day. I know there will be poopy and urine-tastic surprises at some future date.
Remembering December 23rd, 1999, when I spent a few days in New York City to help my nephew Nate into the world.
Hoping I have enough zero-waste gift bags for everyone’s gifts. (Tip — a plain pillow case tied with a ribbon makes great gift wrap for a larger present. Just make sure to get it back after the gift is opened!)
Prodding myself to remember to pick up my Keen boots from the cobbler.
Now, how about you? What are you doing today?
