Not much to say today. Went to BJ's. Gassed up the car and picked up milk and a few other items. Spent $50. Didn't buy meat, fish, or produce. Ouch.
Came home, put away the groceries, pooper scooped.
Am listening to the classical radio station playing what I think might be last year's (or maybe this year's) Christmas concert by the local orchestra. Mainly pops stuff, but it's nice. They played a weird mash-up of "Little Drummer Boy" and "Bolero".
Have to put the trash out.
Spent some time designing a cover for the recipe book that I'm (supposed to be) compiling for the Tea Society. The members have been giving me recipes from their tea parties. I'm supposed to put together a cookbook. Of course, some of the recipes are copied, some are handwritten, some are typed....and I really don't feel like having to type each and every one, though I would like them all to be consistent. Haven't decided how I'm going to lay it out yet. But, at least I have a cover designed. I promised to have the book done by the end of the year. Gulp.
Once it's done, though, it'll be easier to add to it and keep it up to date. It's just getting started on it that's a pain. Glad I have these extra Fridays off!
I also designed a birthday card for the Tea Society, which, as secretary, I'll send out to each member on behalf of the group. I think it turned out cute....it has a teacup on the cover, and I'll cut a small slit in the top, and stick in a teabag (individually wrapped, of course).
I still miss my good old PrintShop program, but I'm slogging along with Microsoft Web Publisher. It's a little clunky, but it works, and the more I get used to it, the easier it gets.
Well, don't have much more to say. Guess I'll get the trash out and stuff. Then I can get into my jammies, and curl up under the blankets with a cuppa tea. I'm still dressed from this morning, and I have the space heater on, but I'm cold...a nice hot cuppa tea, and a bunch of cozy, warm blankies sound pretty darn good. (so does a nap!)
