Hope everyone has Happy Holidays – despite the moody/cold/wet weather that may come our way before Christmas.
I know many have been dealing with issues that life seems to ‘surprise us’ with; but you have to remember, there are people who care about you, and will listen if you want/need to talk.
Yesterday I spent trying to get my hobby room in order – but I never realized exactly how much yarn, string, floss that I have collected — it would fill a small room! (so it nearly does.)
Now, that I have that ‘stash’ somewhat sorted – what do I do with the rest of my treasures? Old school yearbooks, newspaper clippings, ticket stubs, old grocery list — outdated addresses/phone numbers on scraps of paper — You get the general idea…
Yes, CHRISTMAS is quickly approaching.
No, we have not completed our shopping list , yet.
Dave and I may end up creating gifts — at least a few. Others will be added as we can purchase them.
With the economy on the skids — I am sure everyone is trying to find ways to save money while not losing the true spirit of Christmas giving.
One long-tried tip? Trade days, flea markets and yard sales…
Not your style of gift source…well, give a try — you will never know what unique gift items can be found, and most very reasonable in cost.
The best quote I have heard lately — “Rare books, make for rare gifts”. So, most rare books won’t be found in a new bookstore.
Just a bit of a ramble for this first Friday of 2009.
Anyway, here’s hoping you have the best holidays possible. Drop a note my way if you get a chance during this hectic season.
