Just waiting for dinner to bake in the oven. I have a pizza casserole and biscuits going.

It seems later than 5:30...maybe since I have been up since 12:30... 😒

Oh well...looking forward to a nap soon! 😃

Now, I was watching WALL-E this past week (I'm a big kid) and there were some scenes where WALL-E was watching a musical and dancing to it. I would really to know what that movie/ musical was so that I can watch it.

I have never read "A Christmas Carol", Moby Dick, etc... It's my plans in this year to do so as well. Its a year for me to sort of reboot my way of entertaining my intrests and also education of the classics; and I'm open to any great suggestions~

Oh My !! You DEFINITELY should read A Christmas Carol - In my opinion Dickens was the MASTER at making you FEEL the surroundings, the era and all that was happening.

You'll enjoy classic movies and other classic novels, too! If reading gets too ponderous, try downloading classic novels and stories in audiobook form from LibriVox.org---they're read by volunteers and are free.

I also have The Annotated Christmas Carol and you are right - It is marvelous !!!! xo

I am the VERY SAME WAY !!!! I think we need to start a local branch of COLA - Christmas Ornament Lovers Anonymous !!

Yesterday I had another migraine (gone today!) and I had to work in the store. It can be a dusty place at times, but I got a lot done as my displays didn't need much straightening. When I got home, I took a three hour nap ~ I so needed it! Today I am working on paperwork. I am getting all of last month's info inputted and then I am setting up a new log for this year. It means more work as there will be three different logs I use, but I think I'll be able to keep track of things a lot better.

Well, I need to get back to work. I still have to get my computer back online and the one I am borrowing today needs to go back.

Take care, everyone, and have a most MERRY day!


Migraines are such nasty business...Glad you are feeling better xo
