The yummy food left at my door last evening, was from my neighbour/friend K. I wish you could have shared some with me, not just because I would have enjoyed some companionship, but because it tasted so-o good! No, it didn't last until suppertime tonight, because I tasted some last night and finished it off for breakfast, this morning. Mmmm....! Thank you, K.

Today, was a 'work-on-Christmas' day.

Like the good realtor that I am, I continued to work on my contact list and have now begun addressing Christmas card envelopes. Tonight, about 10:15 pm, I had to stop for the evening, because I'm becoming exhausted!

Not surprising, because earlier today, I went Christmas shopping for our four great-grandchildren. Don't have heart failure! Between Gordon and I (it was a 2nd marriage for us), we had 3 children, 10 grandchildren and 4 (and 1/2) great-grandchildren. This means a lot of gifts to shop for! It wears me out, so I try to shop as early as I can; this way, it's not such a strain on the pocketbook, either! Hopefully, I will be done shopping, soon.

While out and about, I ran into a co-worker/friend of mine, M. Together, we went to Shoppers Drug Mart to buy stamps that were on sale for 10% off. It may not seem important to some people, but if you're like me, a person who sends out over 300 cards (not all mailed), any savings is appreciated!

Tonight, I splurged and bought Indian food, for supper. A past client/now friend owns and operates, with his wife, a restaurant here in Windsor. Wow! Can he cook! Love it! Anyway, while there, I realized that they didn't know my husband died in October. English is not their first language, so it didn't surprise me that they didn't know and certainly, I felt bad that I had neglected to tell them. There are probably other people who also aren't aware and I'm sure I'll come across them, at some point in time. To be honest, it depresses me having to tell people, because it brings up all the hurt I am feeling. Still, I realize it will happen and I will just have to deal with it, when this happens.

No, I didn't eat it all, although it was tasty enough that I wanted to! I have some plated for tomorrow's supper and even froze some for another meal.

Hopefully, you are working on your Christmas preparations and enjoying it more than I am, this year. If you have any ideas on how I can feel better about being alone this Christmas, feel free to offer some suggestions. I'm open to ideas.

So, for now, I'll say, "Goodnight". Sleep tight. Don't let the bedbugs bite!

Until next time...
