Since my Husband had the day off,
we gave each other the rest of our Christmas gifts....
Husband got the history, toy soldier books + Tolkien.
I got everything else.
We have a small stash of things for gifts for the other (things given or found at sales)
and my Husband
picked out everything today for both of us.
It was really cute.
He would give me a bag with a book or DVD in it
and then another bag which I would then give to him.... :)
5 things each, very symmetrical.
I rested a lot today.
Am still tired but that's no surprise as I pushed
myself when I was already tired to make the Christmas lunch.
I just knew it was a 'now or never' thing, esp. with my one church
friend having her third child in the next 2 months.
Tomorrow I hope for quiet introvert day.
Today I finally finished up some cards (birthdays) and
such things. I still have a few Christmas cards to send out
(people's whose address I did not have when I was doing the whole
bunch of cards in December)...
I also got my email inbox down to currently 88 unread emails only,
so that's a blessing.... one of the things we talked about at the
Christmas lunch was how technology can create stress,
including email over-load, texts etc.
Well, that's the 9th day of Christmas on my end!
I am grateful for the books I have been given and look forward
to more time to just sit and read.
Tomorrow I hope for some more reading time!
I just found this recipe for vegan pancakes, am thinking of making this
on Wednesday for my friend (new calendar) ... and my
grocery delivery just got a new vegan "chicken" that I hope to try
on Thursday, as DV another friend is coming!
Now you can see why tomorrow is a "rest" day!
The Christmas season is busy!
I listened to the following last Friday and was really nice, calming...
I am putting them here to remember to listen to them again soon....
