Sunday night, I went to sleep to the sound of rain falling, one of the nicest sounds, I think. Monday morning, it had stopped raining, although it was cloudy, and it drizzled a little bit, in the afternoon.
In the afternoon, friend A called to invite us to her place to have Christmas lunch. Friend A usually invites us to her place for both Thanksgiving and Christmas, but, I wasn't sure if she was doing anything for Christmas, this year, as friend T who had the stroke is her cousin (A gave me an update on T - she is having to undergo dialysis three times a week!). So, we will go to A's to have Christmas lunch and then, go to cousin V's to Christmas dinner!
Later in the afternoon, my daughter and I went shopping for the last of the Christmas gifts I needed. We went to our favorite discount store and I bought six gifts and six gift bags; my total came to $42.21 with tax. I bought two items of clothing, a huge plush toy dog for a little girl, two StarWars themed items for two little boys, and a household item for the White Elephant gift exchange my cousin is having. I still have to get the New Year's gifts I will be giving to other members of the family, but, I have all my Christmas gifts, now.
On the way home, we stopped by our favorite Thai food place and bought fried rice and Thai beef salad for a late lunch (with leftovers for dinner).
I wrapped (and bagged) some of the gifts, but I still have a few more to wrap. I think I need a few more gift bags, too!
Today, I am grateful for:
- A relatively dry day after yesterday's rain
- Friend A inviting us to Christmas lunch
- Being able to get all my gift shopping done
- Our favorite Thai food place
- Ginger cookies
Plans for Tuesday include finishing up all the gift wrapping and tagging!
