A shoppin' we will go

We’re actually going to start our Christmas shopping today. It’s early for us, seeing as how there’s three weeks left, but the husband kept today open and Grammy’s going to be home, so it worked out that we can steal a few hours.

Why did my husband who’s been so busy the short kid yells “Stranger danger!” when he walks in the door take a Saturday off?


That picture was taken on Thanksgiving Day. Now we’ve waited over a week for it to clear away and a good rain to wash away the road salt so we can get her to storage, which is a half-hour away. She’ll have a nice heated (to 45) space to spend the winter, and I won’t see her until probably May 1.


On a good note, we’ll be Christmas shopping in the vicinity of Borders. I’m dying to get my hands on Cheyenne McCray’s Forbidden Magic! That counts as Christmas shopping, right?

    Och, I wanna some snow. Why does the white fun always come down where it isn’t appreciated, and never at my place? :lmao:

    You have to get FORBIDDEN MAGIC. I’m about halfway through it (it’s a big book!) and it is sooooo good. Really… it’s blowing my little mind.:shock:

    I don’t know how you can stand to part with your baby for the winter. She’s so gorgeous, even under a mantle of snow!

    I may have sniffled just a tad when I had to hand over her keys. Just a tad.


    I DID, however, get Forbidden Magic. :woot: As well as the most recent Secrets volume, because I’ve never actually read one of them.

    I was too early for the new RT, though. I have sticky notes all over the place reminding me to subscribe, but do you think I ever think of it until the next time I have to drive to the city to get it? :lmao:
