Well, I made it through 2 out of 3 movies last night – The Bishop’s Wife and Christmas in Connecticut. I succumbed to my need for sleep and didn’t see The Shop Around the Corner – but we own a copy, so I can watch it any old time I want to. There’s even more yet to see – White Christmas, Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Story and A Christmas Carol (the one with Alastair Sim as Scrooge – the best, in my opinion.) And, of course, It’s a Wonderful Life. I consider all of these to be essential viewing for my particular Christmas season.
I managed to find our Christmas records (actually, CDs) yesterday. Since we keep them in a closet in the den, a dimly lit one at that, this requires a flashlight and my reading glasses. Maybe even a magnifying glass. But found they were.
Today I’m planning to:
:: Start reading this mystery by Rashad Harrison. I will be reviewing it in early January.
:: Play Mah Jongg on my iPhone. I bought a hard case for it yesterday. I’ve already dropped it once in this house and I know I can be clumsy and distracted at times. The front and back of an iPhone are made of glass. Dropping it on pavement or cement equals a recipe for disaster. You’ll notice I’ve chosen a case in my favorite color.
In the same box with the yarn were these adorable yarn ornaments. Aren’t they cute? They make me smile.
So, to wrap up my incredibly complex list of things to do today: Crochet, read, eat, make my bed, maybe throw in a load of laundry, perhaps dry the laundry, swiffer, vacuum, eat, read, crochet, play a game or two of Mah Jongg. Watch Bringing Up Baby and The Philadelphia Story on TCM. And eat again. Then read in bed.
Over and out.
