Oh, the Weather Outside is Frightful… December 5, 2013

Raining and chilly right now, soon to be sleeting and freezing… and then some snow. Yes, it is was also 60 degrees this morning. Ah, Ohio in December. There’s a jewelry store that is betting on the unpredictability of Ohio weather and promising this weekend’s purchases will be free if it snows 6 inches on Christmas Eve in the city. Good luck to them, and their customers.

I’m finishing up my semester tonight. I wrote my last two discussion posts and finished pulling together my annotated bibliography already. After I post this, I’ll be writing my summary and be pulling it all together to submit. Then all I have left is a one page journal-style reflection which I hope to finish tonight, as well. Then it is Christmas break!

Full of working at the store. 😉 And hanging out with friends. Am now debating the Festivus party this weekend, bad weather and a drive to and from Cleveland, while typical for this particular party every year, may just not be my cup of tea this time, we’ll see. It might all melt by Saturday afternoon. I will be doing the lion’s share of my Christmas shopping on Sunday evening at my store’s employee shopping night, put my oldest niece’s present on hold today so it wouldn’t sell out before the weekend.

Plans for Christmas break: Dr Who series 7, Bones season 8, Ender’s Game, Thor, Catching Fire, The Hobbit part 2 and reading fantasy novels.

Happy Thanksgiving!!! November 28, 2013

I wish everyone a very happy, safe and love-filled Thanksgiving today. Safe travels for those on the road, and a snow storm for those waiting outside retail establishments for sales. 😉 (No, I’m not looking forward to working this weekend, but at least the time will go by fast.)

This past weekend was pet-sitting while folks went out east, this weekend is pet sitting while folks go to Indiana. Poor Ralphie’s back in his cone, though. Dusty is ignoring me so far today though I imagine he’ll come out when I start eating dinner.

In the oven so far: Cornish hen and homemade stuffing. In an hour, I’ll switch the stuffing for the yams, and check on the hen. Tuesday I had an excellent Thanksgiving feast with my gaming friends, last night the folks I pet-sit for made me another excellent feast, today is with the pup and cat, and tomorrow, I imagine there will be all sorts of food at work. 🙂 Quite a good Thanksgiving week.

School-wise, I’ve got an annotated bibliography and summary to do this weekend, and one post to reply to sometime before Sunday. Next week is my last week for the semester. Hurray, a break so I can catch up on Dr Who and Bones. 😉

All in all, a good start to the holiday season.
