I started my Christmas shopping today. I know it's early, but I wanted to beat most of the crowds. I'm pleased that I got the majority of it done. Or I at least took care of HG and my work obligations. I'm looking forward to putting the tree up next weekend. I have new things from last year that I'm looking forward to putting out. I got some things for Christmas last year, and I bought some clearance items. I got a couple of nice surprises in my Christmas stash waiting on me this year. Currently, Sally, Shorty and Tula are all curled up asleep in their beds in front of the pellet stove. It's early for them all to be asleep. Usually at least one of them is chewing on a rawhide, but tonight they are all sleeping soundly. It's quite peaceful actually. Guess it's time for me to snuggle with HG on the couch.
