Last Entry of the Year?
I'm doing my best (again) to NOT make resolutions for the New Year. I think it helps to have the cruise coming up because it makes certain I'll have no regular routine until after I am home 2 weeks into the year. And then Mark is gone for another full week. And by then I would be bored with routine anyway and so I know just to go ahead and give up on resolutions.
I got up early this morning. No reason, just woke up. So we've been in the living room drinking coffee and watching cats for a long time. I thought maybe I'd go ahead and get to work early, but obviously I am not getting that done.
They (work people) are doing a mannequin challenge at work this morning. I definitely want to be too late to participate in that!!!!! Stupid holiday festivities.
Tonight I will cook some more for our holiday. Poor sister has been super sick all week. I imagine she will pull it all together by the weekend and be a gracious hostess, but maybe not. I hope she is fine and we don't have to order pizza for Christmas lunch. Or just eat my candy and apricot bread (I made those last night).
I need to find my common book that I created with the mandala on the front. I don't know where it has gotten off to. I need a new one for the New Year. AND I need to get my "real" sketch books available to use. Trying to decide if I should use them at all at Christmas or wait until the New Year. I bought them when I started this online sketching and watercolor painting course and I'm still preserving them because I don't want to MESS THEM UP. Stupid. I can't mess them up. I will be practicing.
