I hope it’s a happy Monday for you, I’m still trying to decide about mine. I’m thankful that Thanksgiving came early this year, so I’ll have more time to get ready for Christmas– ’cause it’s slow going here. I’m getting ready, but it’s at a slower pace than usual–probably because I keep taking so many blogging breaks! Speaking of blogging–I think it’s time to link up with “Monday Quiz About Me”!
1. When was the last time you had your picture taken with Santa?
Actually, I had my picture taken with Santa (at Bass Pro Shop) last Christmas–along with my daughter and granddaughter. We thought it would be neat to have a “3 generations” picture made with Santa. I’m the lady in the red top.
2. Which do you prefer – ham or turkey?
I prefer turkey, probably because we don’t have it very often.
3. Do you give more to charity in December?
Sometimes, but not always, it just depends on what’s going on.
4. Which US City would you most like to visit and why?
I think I’d most like to visit Miami, Florida, because of its close proximity to the Florida Keys.
My question for you:
5. Do you enjoy watching Christmas movies? If so, what’s your favorite one?
I love watching Hallmark Christmas movies! There are so many good ones, I can’t pick a favorite, but among my favorites are “The Christmas Card”, “The Christmas Heart”, “Call Me Mrs. Miracle”, and “A Christmas Visitor”. I also enjoy watching National Lampoon’s “Christmas Vacation” and “A Christmas Story” each year, as well.
‘Tis the season, and it was a busy weekend around our house! As I mentioned, I’m still working on getting up our Christmas decorations. Ed and I finished putting up the outside decorations on Friday afternoon, but I’m still working on the inside decorations. We had a lot of company on Saturday, then some shopping to do on Sunday, so the inside decorations have had to wait. Today’s top priority is finishing the tree in the living room. Wish me luck!
I stayed home all day on Friday, waiting for the delivery man to bring our new television. He was supposed to arrive between twelve and five, but it was after six when he finally called for directions. By then, I’d given up hope.
On Saturday, when Ed unpacked the television, we discovered we didn’t get any papers with our new television–no packing slip, no invoice, or any paper that we could use to purchase an extended warranty. Our plight didn’t stop there… We discovered our brand new replacement television already has “issues”! It has what appears to be two “smudges” right in the middle of the screen, but they don’t wipe off. Occasionally, the picture also turns a bit blurry for just a few seconds. Can you believe this? I talked with the warranty company last night, and they will be arranging repair service next week, while I wait to receive an invoice (for the television) from them. Here we go again…Can you believe it?
Tomorrow I will also be starting yet another treatment plan for the yeast overgrowth that’s still invading my body. After drinking the glucose for Thursday’s test, I’ve been in even more misery. (Sugar consumption increases yeast growth.) The newest cream from the doctor hasn’t helped either. I’m now moving into month six of this problem, with the yeast spreading again.
While my yeast problem is aggravating, persistent, and a little threatening, our daughter-in-law, Jennifer, is dealing with a much larger issue. Her six months GYN check up, on Friday, didn’t go well. Once again, I am asking for prayers on Jennifer’s behalf. She has to wait a few days to learn more results. Your prayers would be deeply appreciated.
