It’s that time of the year again. It’s CHRISTMAS. Which always feels like there is something special in the air, and there’s a spirit of community that warms all of our hearts. This is also the time of year when Terri Steffes (of the blog Christmas Tree Lane) hosts a parade of trees within blogger’s homes. It IS the most wonderful time of the year, for sure.
Travelogue: A Weird Trip to LA
Today, we went on a weird trip in LA. We had some errands to run up in Los Angeles, and afterwards decided to go grab a bite to eat. Since we were close, we wanted to head to Clifton’s… It was closed for an event, so the 10 minutes of free parking came in handy.Then, as anyone in LA knows, we got stuck in some crazy traffic.
It is time for December projects to start. I am doing Journal your Christmas (sorta) along with 31 Days of Lists and (my first year) for December Daily. Some days will be jyc vs dd…
I am getting back in the habit of taking pictures daily, and today I got an awesome one!
The coloring screams December to me, along with the fact she is cuddling, because December means cooler weather.
We went to a location called Don the Beachcomber, which I have driven by all of my life. And, we had a brie quesadilla and saw a ton of pirates…
Overall, it was a great evening. I came home and my wordcount suffered, but I did get to see my husband play video games for 4 hours.
I need to buy frames, but got tired of waiting. Here’s something I mocked up today, and it feels so much better to see them on the wall—until I get some frames.
Maybe I need to go to Goodwill and find some mirrors or frames. Hmmm.
Where do you get frames?
I made a commitment to read more business books this year, along with books that will help me with my writing.
Enter The Elements of Style by William Strunk, Jr.
I never read this 68 page tome previously—and it is great!
Wow! I just had one of the coolest mail days of my life. Here are the books I got today. The one on the bottom, was provided by the publisher (they emailed me asking for a review, I said send me a copy—and they did!). The top one, well that was a buy all for me. I saw they were out of stock on Amazon, but then I needed to pick it up—and I snagged a copy.
