Hope everyone had a good day, whether celebrating, or not. At the very least, I hope everyone had a Safe day. The sudden blizzard was pretty terrible for people driving. It also made work pretty quiet.

Belated Happy Birthday to Uncle John, his birthday was nearly a week ago, as I’m very late in posting this week.

School is good. This was the second week of a session, so everything was already posted. The new workshop went really well for the first week. Looks like it’s going be fun. Next class starts Monday, too. Busy, busy, busy.

Had a great time going out to the movies with friends last night.

Had a great time with Mom this past weekend. We ate a lot and shopped a lot and watched a lot of movies. We discovered Redbox movie rental when the dollar theater failed us (no longer showing the movies I wanted to share with her). Friday we had Red Lobster and Roosters, went grocery shopping, got my car’s oil changed and serpentine belt replaced, and watched Les Miserables and The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Saturday we went to the spa and had massages and mani/pedis, and ate catered Panera for lunch. We went shopping for jeans and shoes, went to Olive Garden for dinner and then watched Skyfall in the evening. Sunday we went to church in the morning and then headed to Easton to see Oz the Great and Powerful. While watching the previews, Mom discovered that there was a Star Trek reboot, so that evening we watched the new Star Trek movie, while polishing off the leftovers from the weekend. We also watched Bourne Legacy while she made me lots of Chex Mix in the afternoon.

Monday morning we went off to my new eye doctor, Dr. Suh, and ordered new glasses, with a slightly stronger left lens. They gave me a grid to put on my fridge to check for macular degeneration (I don’t think the assistant believes I’ll come back next year, as it had been 8 since my Last appointment with an eye doc).  Then we had breakfast at First Watch (mmm delicous waffles). After breakfast, we did a little bit of shopping, during which we discovered that at Whole Foods, you can buy cinnamon sticks in bulk for $6.99/lb instead of in a jar for $4-$5/oz. Back home to have some leftover Cheddar Bay biscuits for lunch and Mom headed off to see my brother. All in all, and excellent weekend with Mom.

Somehow this one only got saved as a draft on December 9th instead of posted… So here’s that week’s post, and I’m working on this week’s….

It has been snowing and cold for the last week. Really cold. Below freezing most of the time cold. The snow has not been much around here. Dustings, really. But enough that people have had their usual bout with learning how to driving in snow for the year. Not that they will get a whole lot better, but at least they’ve had a reminder. My front lawn was half snow dusted, half still green in the bright shining sun today. It actually looked pretty neat.

Not a lot going on. Christmas shopping for the nieces and nephew complete. Schedule for when we get to deliver them still up in the air. Plans for our Christmas dinner and movie still incomplete as well. Just biding our time and trying not to let the year speed to a finish quite yet.

I got my copies of Daily Bites of Flesh yesterday. My first story published in a real bound book. So, that’s pretty cool.

Lots of hours at the store this month, so that’s good, but leaves me tired with all the early mornings. Hopefully I’ll have something more interesting to say next week.
