Time for another Week In Review as sponsored by the spritely Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets. I have to say that I really enjoy playing along with WIR even when I don’t feel as if anything has happened. I think this is one of those weeks.
As I sit here in the wee hours of Sunday morning trying to review the past week, I’m thinking about the weeks ahead. I think I’m going to pause things for a while. Not blogging, Not Week In Reviewing. Projects. Sorting and Packing…all of this unearthing of my life around here.
I don’t have a lot of Christmas spirit. That’s nothing new. I haven’t had much in recent years. Not really sure why. I seem to pull it out in the end each year but not with a lot of enthusiasm and I would almost let it pass by without much fanfare. I do hope that some year soon I’ll get it back. I try each year, but…The season will show up with or without me so I do try.
My week should probably have been filled with shopping and decorating and general Jingle Belling. It was not. I’m trying to rev myself up and I probably will get there.
I spent a lot of the week with my best friend, Gail trying to be helpful while she has a broken arm. I must say that she is a very good patient and only occasionally pushy (“I think it’s Snack Time!) We watched lots of Law and Order: SVU (our favorite) and generally enjoyed spending time together, solving the problems of the world (well at least Our problems.)
I had a pleasant weigh-in at Weight Watchers on Saturday. I lost 1.2 pounds so I’m feeling better in that regard. I’m getting back to my pre-vacation weight which I’m happy about. Saturday afternoon, my sister Ele had a Christmas Tea for some ladies we know. This was the table.
I’m proud to say that the only thing I had was the cup of tea you see in the foreground. I did indulge a bit at home later in the evening with the goodie box that I brought home for Ralph. But I savored everything at home when I could really enjoy it. It was a lovely afternoon.
I’ll be going out this afternoon with Ele again and seeing some of the same ladies. I’m looking forward to it.
I will be working to get some more spirit in the coming week. To prove that I’m not a complete Humbug, I offer this photo.
This is our tiny Christmas Tree. Not a great photo, but I wanted the lights to show. It makes me happy. The tree skirt is a treasure that my Mom crocheted for me many years ago. I will be working on the whole Christmas Spirit thing in the coming week. I think I can do it!
