We put up a tree after all this year … in honor of soon-to-arrive company flying in from across the pond. Working fiercely to get things done around the house and office so we will be free to show these lads around. Oh, and am definitely needing some Caleb time. And need to download some video taken last weekend when Caleb was over … sound asleep in his little carrier. Snoring. Yep, there was no mistaking that sound.
Made $30 selling old books to Half Price Book store. Re-spent at least half of it on books I had to have. That’s how they get ya, you know … let you wander the store while they are working up your total. A book worm is a book worm is a book worm. But four boxes of books are gone out of the house. Part of my de-cluttering and feng shui-ing efforts.
Read today where John Lennon wrote “Happy Christmas – War is Over” because he was sick of Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas.” I feel vindicated! Am sure we will catch a viewing of that movie at some point. But seriously, one of the gayest movies ever made. And I don’t mean gay as in happy, either. You don’t see Hollywood re-making this one, but it should. Obviously, not a favorite movie. And the song with the silly whistling birds … makes me want to push someone out a window. But can’t wait for “It’s a wonderful life …”
Don’t have much to report for now but might have to do a daily diary of “Oklahoma through the eyes of a newly arrived British Lad.” Gonna be interesting.
