Scuba Man put our Christmas tree up Monday night. Before I could decorate it, Tuesday after work, Pockets had claimed it as his own. He climbs up the tree and lies on the branches. As it is an artificial tree, the branches bend. Now we have a big gap mid-way up the tree. I won’t be hanging any decorations other than ribbons. Seeing him in the tree is decoration enough. What made me think he would stay out of the tree this year when he didn’t last year?
The roads around the office are intermittently closed for the next several days. Steven Spielberg is filming a movie about Abraham Lincoln. Apparently, they will be doing outside filming on the streets. I’m not sure how they will make everything look like that time period, but I know of two buildings they will probably use, as they are both historic hospital buildings.
Willow lost a whole pound! Which for my chubster is very good. We’ve really cut down on her treats. Plus, since she got off the predinzone, she has much more energy and wrestles with Pockets all the time!
Work has been so busy that I forget what time it is, forget to take lunch, and forget about blogging. I love when I get that into what I’m doing. It makes time fly.
We bought 4 different brands of Muscato last night. This is the wine my darling niece introduced me to last weekend. I’ve tried one and its pretty good. I think I should do a blind taste test to see which I like better.
I started running barefoot, thanks to dasportsguy. I can’t run for any longer than a few minutes, but it’s a start. He’s so right about the calves hurting and having to get used to a new way of running. Running this way is much easier on my knees.
Last month I won three books to review from LibraryThing. How cool is that? I can’t wait to read them.
I borrowed a lens for my new camera. I wanted to check it out and make sure it was working ok. I have to give it back to my friend next week. I’ve taken pictures around the house but not much else. Maybe this weekend I’ll find time to use it more. Once I get my own, I’ll be able to really learn how to use my camera.
Leaves need to be raked again this weekend, but rain is expected on Saturday. Scuba Man said he might need to rake them on Friday, which is a vacation day for him. Since we couldn’t get to the beach after the hurricane, for a planned vacation, he had a lot of vacation time to burn before he lost it, so he’s been taking off on Fridays and sometimes Mondays.
I need to get back to work now. So glad you stopped by!
