| Drizzly, Dark, and Dreary|
December 15, 2002
Today was the epitome of DREARY. It rained. When it wasn't raining, it had either just stopped raining, or was about to begin raining (again). The sun never even tried to appear. The day was uniformly grey from sunrise to sunset. Nothing even approaching day"light"....more like day"gloom". The only way to tell what time it was, was to look at a clock. Dreary, dreary, dreary.
And H said today was good weather, compared to what is coming. At least rain doesn't make it difficult to get around.
He went out to finish Christmas shopping, so i finished his present from Barsky. i'm thrilled with how it turned out. i hope he likes it. Then i wrapped the rest of his gifts and put them under the tree.
We ate at the diner, and that was my "outing" for the day. Just going that far in this drizzle and dampness made me feel congested and crappy. Bleh.
Came home, watched more figure skating. i feel like making some fudge now. i have a dead easy, practically no-cook, damn near idiot proof recipe (and NO marshmallow stuff). i'm thinking i'll make a batch, and put some in the container that had the soup in it, so i can return it to the nice mom this week.
i know i don't do much Christmas baking in general, but this year, i feel inclined to not bother doing any. Course, that could change by next week....but i don't feel like making the time to bake, when there are only two of us. i could always bring the "extras" in to work, i suppose, and Mom wants me to bake some butterballs for my Uncle. i said if i bake any, i'll set some aside for him and let him know he can come by for them. i'll see if i feel in a baking mood this week.
i will make my steamed Christmas pudding for Christmas day, of course (i even ordered a proper locking pudding mold from KitchenEtc.)
Feels like it's bedtime already, even though it's only after 6....been that kind of dank, dark day.....
