If we were having coffee, I’d first thank you for meeting me downtown. It’s more convenient for me this morning. I’m off to the library for a little workshop on self-publishing hosted by some local authors. Hopefully I’ll learn a thing or two. I just don’t spend enough time at our library. I have every intention of going to more of their events, and it slips my mind.
Cam couldn’t join us today, he’s at home with his nose in the books. A couple more weeks and he’ll be free of those pesky classes for a month or so. I’m glad I don’t have those anymore.
We’re probably going to finish up our Christmas shopping this afternoon. I thought I had it all finished on my lunch break on Thursday. As soon as I got in the car, so proud of myself, I realized we needed a couple more things. You know, like paper and bags to wrap all this stuff in. I really like Christmas shopping. I really like buying things for other people. Everyone says that’s not what the season is really about, and yes, of course, they are right. It’s about spending time with family, making memories, carrying on traditions. But I really love seeing someone’s eyes light up when they open something I got for them.
There’s not really a whole lot more to share. I’ve kept myself busy with more reading and writing lately. I’ve simply refuse to go outside since the temperature dropped. Since I didn’t read hardly at all in the summer, I’m playing catch-up now.
I usually stay very active outside during the warmer months and hibernate during the winter months, like in that Onion article. Now it’s back to the dreadful treadmill at the gym. I’ll probably stop by and rejoin. It’s been a while since I ran from the zombies as Runner 5. If you’re looking for an exciting way to get into running, the phone app, Zombies, Run! is brilliant. Cam and I have a running joke in which I talk about how buff I want to get for the wedding, but every time I say the word, my voice drops an octave and I sound like a gym rat that has no neck. Really, I just want the wedding dress to zip all the way up. Currently, I’m struggling with that after all the holiday eating. I guess that’s what I get for buying a dress right before the holidays. Oh well. It’ll work out somehow. Since I mentioned going to the library more often before, maybe I should do their free yoga classes, too. I’ve been meaning to do that all season.
Thanks for meeting up with me. Stop by my place later tonight for some new board games. We borrowed them from Cam’s friend last week and haven’t even played them yet.
Have a great week and stay warm!
