Today's Quote: "A musician must make music, an artist must paint, a poet must write if he is ultimately to be at peace with himself. What one can be, one must be. - Abraham Maslow
Since we've established that I'm just going to be skimming the surface, here goes nothing.
I've been fighting a cold since Saturday. The cold is winning. I'm pretty sure it's just a cold and not something worse, like the flu, but nevertheless it's left me me totally run down. I've done little more than sleep for the past few days. Today I am up and about, but just barely. I'm hoping to be feeling better by Thanksgiving. If I'm going to consume a calorie laden turkey dinner, I'd like to be able to actually taste it. I enjoy Thanksgiving mostly because I view it as a "warm up" for Christmas. I've been preparing for Christmas in small ways for the past several months, but after Thanksgiving I can go full steam ahead. Surprisingly, decorating for Christmas is not something I particularly enjoy. I appreciate the decorations, and am delighted once the decorating is done, but I don't at all like the process. It feels messy and chaotic, and it makes me stressed and impatient. What I like best about Christmas is making hand made gifts, sending Christmas cards, baking cookies, and planning get-togethers. Okay . . . I had planned on writing more, but I'm just not "feeling it". Plus, Casey has very nicely asked me to sit on the couch with him to watch Go Diego Go. I've decided to take him up on the offer, as it appeals to me far more than finger painting, which he will undoubtedly ask for next.
