The inflatable Santa across the street is totally deflated. It's a red blotch on the snow over there. The weather here has been just awful. We have had snow, ice, high wind and extreme cold. I guess you might expect this in the winter, but it isn't even officially winter yet. Usually we figure Winter to begin on the winter solstice which will be December 22nd this year. This is still several days away. In any case Christmas around here will be a dirty white.

I did some shopping for Christmas gifts, primarily for my granddaughter and have sort of laid low to keep warm. I have more shopping to do and may do some this evening. The one thing about the Christmas season is that it is so busy and chaotic. I think I used to have fun at Christmas. Now it seems that there is more anxiety than fun. I am sure I am not alone in this feeling.

I cooked yesterday and again today. It's becoming a trend. I kind of enjoy cooking. I just haven't done much of it in the past few years. Another one of my house companions generally does it. She has been busy so I have done some of it.

I know there is nothing very significant here, but I just wanted to write a brief life update. Stay unstressed and be happy.
