Elvis has left the building - Again and Again!
The Christmas vintage hunt for my collection has also begun, although this year it is much tougher since the thrift stores have caught on and went from underpricing to overpricing. Oh well, the hunt is fun and every Saturday that Mom and I can we spend the morning looking. I also have loads of it and really don't want my collection to get any larger, so if I find good stuff this year I will sell off other not as good stuff to keep the collection manageable. And no, I am not decorating the house, that waits until the last week in December. We might put up the exterior Christmas lights this weekend as the weather has been unusually dry and mild but won't turn them on until December. Buddy has been loving is physiotherapy walks.
I only volunteered once this month, mostly because there hasn't been as much opportunity to do so but I've scheduled myself 3 times at the wild animal rescue in December plus also have the volunteer Christmas party to attend in mid-December.
I've not really started my Christmas shopping, usually I like to be done by December 1 so I best get on that. All the money for Christmas was saved by summer which is super nice since we are still on reduced salaries. We have signed new contracts, we just are being super careful to make sure we always have 6 months of salaries in the company bank account.
Our annual November/December trek to Alberta to see the kids that are there and hubby's Mom is in 3 weeks and our lovely week long trip to Mexico (Zihuatanejo again this year, we loved it) is only 83 days away! And yes, I am counting, plus I have an airline app that tells me how many days.
And that's about all I've got right now! Have a great weekend everyone.
