Cold, cold, cold today! And busy, busy--traffic every where. Don't people have JOBS they should be doing in the middle of the day in the middle of the week?? Really, those holiday shoppers so interfere with my stress-free shopping on a weekday. Have they no respect for the retired? I mean I rarely venture into the shops on the weekends, holding up lines while I begin to count out my change, rummaging my wallet out of my bag just after the entire order is totalled up. If that's going to annoy you on a weekday, stay home!
Wrapping is mostly done. Martha Stewart would blanch and faint, or at least pucker her lips in a righteous moue, I'm sure. I put gifts in white boxes, tied a ribbon around the box and pasted on the cut out fronts of old Christmas cards with "to" and "from" written on. It's not that I was too cheap to buy wrapping paper and gift tags; I was going for environmentally friendly. Yeah, that's it--environmentally friendly, cutting back on my carbon footprint.
