Closer to Christmas fill-ins.....

Waiting for nightfall at the Carols concert
Anyone in the holiday spirit? I'm getting there.

1. As I neared the car-park I hoped there was a space.

2.In Other Rooms, Other Wonders is what I'm reading right now. It's a series of quirky stories about people living around Mr K.K. Harouni.

3. I didn't start out this way, but I still like the result.

4. I'd rather be reading to tell the truth.

5. The best way to enjoy life is to expect the unexpected.

6. This is the reason I am still smiling!

7. And as for the weekend, on Friday I was looking forward to my students' Graduation Dinner, today my plans include writing my Christmas cards and Sunday, I want to catch a movie with Ali!

First Friday in December

Boys assembling toys
1. One of my favourite things about December is the proximity of holidays.

2. I wish I'd written the year we bought some of the quirkiest ornament(s)!

3. This is what I'm hoping for today/tonight: sleep unbroken by the cat howling.

4. What is it with his Y-E-O-W-ling noise? And why is it at 11pm and 5 am?

5. Ooh, a forgotten chocolate in the bottom of the bowl......

6. ....And there goes the cat again, early.  My ears are ringing!

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to getting the house clean, tomorrow my plans include breakfast with friends and Sunday, I want to get to my art workshop and finish lots of things!
