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 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.
Cute website here.
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!
