Just a little frosting. We could use some of the snow pack you guys to the south are getting…our sympathies to you. We live where snowplows exist and have a Plan for the event.
We got with our accountant by phone yesterday and finally have the healthcare thing figured out. We have the decor nearly up. We’re reaching the ‘cleanup’ phase…after which we hope just to have a quiet Christmas.
We went out to eat last night—our usual pub hamburgers. We broke a few dietary rules, but not many…
I’ve got my regular prescription to pick up today, plus we’re out of breakfast-ables. The streets are perfectly dry, so no problem there. I’ve got some fish stuff coming this morning and my new phone this afternoon, so I’ll go after that.
It’s nippy enough the cats are making a cat ball on my bed.
I’m thinking I really should do something about lighter winter shoes. Flipflops don’t do it, really, even with tabi socks; the snow boots require lacing and are too hot indoors. The Reebok soles, ditto the garden clogs, tend to turn stiff and slick on ice. I think ideal would be some cheap step-in boots that don’t require a lace up, and that aren’t quite so insulated. Alas, they closed the Freddy Myers that would have been the easy source of such boots and I hate to shop at Walmart—I don’t approve of their policies. You name their policy and I don’t approve of it. But it’s the only thing now within 10 miles, except the mall, and I’d rather wear the flipflops than venture into the mall at Christmastime.
