Random Nonsense and Coffee Chat

I'm linking up with Stacy for some Randomness.
On a completely random note... A friend of a friend posted a picture of her in a fancy evening dress and a young lady in a white ball gown.

The caption said, "My baby cousin's debut." The post included a "check in" at a country club.  I didn't comment, but I wanted to.  I wanted to say, "debut into what?"  I thought debutante balls were a thing of the past.  How is a debutante ball relevant in this day and time?  Isn't it just a ridiculous display of wealth?

Another random note:  I'm liking these 2 new comedies:  Kevin Can Wait and Man with a Plan. I'm not sure if they're really good, but the characters are familiar, and I like 'em.  Designated Survivor has caught my eye, too.  Again, a familiar character.  I so miss 24.  These are the only new shows I like right now.

And yet another random note:  I've had the dreaded stomach bug.  First my husband had it, and he rarely ever gets sick.  He stayed home from work Friday.  He was better the third day, then I got it.  I stayed home a day, too.  It was obviously contagious.  Think I'm ready to go back now.  It was gruesome!

And on a relevant note - I'm thinking about Christmas gifts.  Since I'm having surgery soon, I can't leave it to the last minute.  I've got ten days to get as much done as I can.  There are so many crafty things I want to do, but I don't know if I'll have time, which brings me to Coffee Chat.

Our fearless hostess asks us...
I'm going to give you a challenge for the rest of this month.   I want you to think about something in your life you'd like to focus on -- just for you - and commit to that task.  Maybe it will require a daily check in.  Maybe only weekly.   Perhaps it's writing a certain number of words per day.  Or a photo a day.   The only rule is that it is For YOU.  Your need.  
Right now, there are
47 days
until Christmas 2016!
But keep reading for more from Santa's Grumpy Elf!
(He's grumpy because there are 3,997,635 seconds until Christmas!)

 I have gifts to order and wrap.  And I have gifts I want to make.  I've started on two of them:  wooden letters I've painted that I am planning to modpodge some lace and flowers to.  I'm also painting a wooden "book" that is actually a storage box.  In addition, I have gifts I want to make with Mason jars.
But I don't want to stress myself since I'm having surgery on the 17th, and I don't know how long I will be unable to move my left arm.  So, my plan is to take baby steps between now and then.  I've got nine days.  If I do a little a day, I can do it!  I need to stop spending so much time at work and bringing so much work home with me in order to accomplish this, so it's going to be a challenge.  Wish me luck!


  1. Good luck with your gifts, and i pray your surgery goes well!

  2. Good luck with both the gifts and the surgery. You got this! As you say, a little bit each day. I tinted mason jars one year, and I think it's my favourite gift ever. Can't wait to see the book/storage thing - sounds brilliant.

  3. I'm really enjoying Kevin Can Wait and Man With a Plan, too! And Designated Survivor! :)

    Ugh on the stomach bug! Hope you're feeling much better now - and you gotta make sure you stay healthy prior to your surgery, you don't need them postponing it!

    I'm thinking about Christmas gifts, too - though my crafty ones are going to have to wait now that we have an offer on our house with a closing date of 12/23...GAH! Now I have to reassess priorities - and pack like a madwoman, especially since I won't be able to do any heavy lifting after my surgery on 11/30. We're quite the pair with all this, aren't we? :)

    But you've got this - doing a little a day will pay off for sure! I think I'll adopt that idea, too. :)


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
