Somehow we missed all of the exciting weather over the weekend. No snow for us, just rain. It did not even rain that much so I can’t really complain. It was a pleasant weekend, nothing out of the ordinary, no emergencies, just happy horses thank goodness. I can’t believe Christmas is just a few days away, and it is even more shocking to me that 2010 is just a couple of weeks away. Where does the time go????
I am pleased to say that I have finished all of my Christmas shopping this year. This has got to be some kind of world record for me! However I do have it easy in that we only exchange gifts with a very few people. I used to drive myself batty trying to find the perfect gift for everyone and anyone but I gave that up years ago and now find the holidays much more enjoyable. I don’t think Jason has even started which is pretty much par for the course for him. He only has to worry about me so he has it pretty easy. I think horse people are pretty darn easy to buy gifts for, just open the Dover catalog and order something, and I guess spring for the overnight shipping!
I have however failed to send out Christmas cards for a second (or is it third??) year in a row. I love receiving them, decorating the house with them, seeing the pictures, reading the updates, really I like everything about the ritual of Christmas cards. I’m just not very good at reciprocating!
I hope everyone had a great weekend and has many great plans with friends and family in the next couple of weeks.
