The weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are always a blur to me. It seems like when Autumn gets here I should put on my running shoes and take off with a bottle of water in my hand to keep me hydrated as I scramble through the days.
I am really not the busy, I don’t think. I don’t have a job. I don’t have children I have to ferry here, there and everywhere. I don’t even have a very demanding husband who is always asking me to do things. I’m just saying, the days seem to fly by like the wind and when a week is over David and I look at each other and say, “That week went fast.” Maybe it’s our age and the space, time, continuum thing, but I can almost see the world turning, it’s going so fast. I also tell David I can hear God’s voice whispering to me constantly and I am wondering what He is telling me.
I don’t watch that much tv although I have gotten hooked on The Crown on Netflix and have been watching that. Man, am I glad I was not born into royalty. I would have hated all my time planned for me every day. And not being able to leave your house without the media watching all the time would make me downright crazy. And your privacy certainly is not private. Poor Elizabeth and Phillip cannot even have an argument without someone noticing and reporting that their marriage is on the rocks. If David and I were watched like that, people would think we were getting a divorce all the time because we do argue a bit at times. Don’t all couples? But if you are royalty you are expected to be happy all the time and give a good show to the public. That is not for me.
We also finished watching Longmire on Netflix. We always watch a show during our evening meal because that is the only time David and I watch anything together. I really hated to see Longmire end and I won’t give anything away, but I was not happy about something that has bothered me the entire series and it bothered me at the end. That is all I am saying. I had kind of a crush on Longmire. That handsome, rugged, cowboy look set my heart to pitter pattering. David, if you are reading this, you make my heart go pitter patter all the time. And one other show I have been watching while I knit is the Roosevelts. It’s a Ken Burns documentary and I am learning a whole lot of history about our two Presidents Roosevelt and their lives and their families and the times during which they were presidents. There is something about Teddy Roosevelt that reminds me of our current president. In a good way, of course because I am not a Trump hater.
But back to time. I have worked on Christmas gifts for weeks and finally today I am finished buying and making presents and next week David will wrap them. I don’t like wrapping. David does a great job and is very meticulous and his edges are crisp and he does not waste paper. My wrapping looks like a two year old had a tantrum and had some paper and tape handy.
We have attended a couple of our grandchildren’s Christmas programs at their school. That always gets me in the Christmas spirit. I have been taking lots of pictures and one day soon I will put them on here when I have time. There are some things I just cannot show right now because there are people who should not see things before Christmas if you know what I mean.
Hope your days are going well. All of you all over the world who read this blog, I just want to tell you, I think about you and wonder about your lives and hope all is well in your part of the world. At this Christmas time I wish the world and our country could all come together for a few days of peace. We all need it. I like to think if all those who read my blog could get together, we would all like each other and have a great time getting to know each other. Wouldn’t that be fun? I’ll bake the cinnamon rolls. Hope you aren’t gluten free or carb free because my cinnamon rolls are to die for. Bye.
