When I got up this morning I had a sore hip. I think it is a bit of sciatica acting up. I'm hoping that maybe it just the way I slept last night and it goes away. And of course Auntie
But as soon as I finished I raced out to do a little shopping (before she thought of more chores for me). And I actually found a good number of Christmas presents. It felt good to get a little progress made. I was starting to feel the pressure of being behind schedule.
Tonight was our Santa Claus Parade. It was cold and we had a little snow falling so we decided not to go. Mom and Auntie couldn't stand outside for that long in the cool damp weather. But then, just as we finished supper the phone rang and it was Harolds wife. Their house is right along the parade route and she invited me over. I thought maybe she was feeling sad, because he loved Christmas so much and they always had a bunch over to watch the parade each year. So I went over and lots of other friends were there too. I guess we all had the same idea. We broke out the hot chocolate and Baileys, bundled up and watched the parade. I think my first mug was more Baileys than hot chocolate! Gotta love the way Sandy mixes a drink!! LOL
It was a good day. Except I haven't hooked any all weekend.
