And we have the decorations out, but no tree yet. I think we have most of the presents for the kids.
Another weekend over. Pretty quiet-Fri. was home, S to bed, very tired. Asleep early. Sat., up, school meeting, E to hairdresser’s, S to friends’ and the Nutcracker. Libe, sat and read, get E, lunch at Pizzicato, browse, shop, bins, pick up S, dinner, S to bed, watch drone racing. Up Sun., skipped church, cleaned the house, watched more drone racing. E and S home, clean more-wash, vacuum, tidy, dishes, dinner, fold clothes, S to bed, and here we are. To bed late, up on time, to work, work, one of the people in our group is leaving. I discovered that E’s reading glasses work for my right eye only (my left eye is fine up close, bad long, and the right one is fine long), so I took out the left lens, and now reading, phone and computer screens are super crisp.
So, home, sis got us a Christmas gift that got recalled, dinner, S to bed, check out the Mirage (working great), laundry and dishes, bed. Up, missed bus, alternate route, work. Gonna snow tomorrow afternoon. Home, dinner, S to bed, laundry-really the same ‘ol…
And Weds. was awfully fun. Got to work, work, started snowing about 1ish. Left about 2:30, thought taking a different route home. Big. Mistake. When Portland gets snow, everything locks up, and in this case, everyone left for home at the same time-the map was a sea of red. I sat on a bus for an hour to get to downtown. Another hour to get to another bus. That bus went onto snow route, so I got off and walked to get another bus. Waited, and waited, so I walked. 3 miles in a snowstorm. Nice to have those crampons. The 3 mile walk was the shortest bit of the trip. It was nice, though, quiet, and I was properly dressed. Brought back memories of walking back from the Jadrych’s in high school. M likes it too. Saw one big crash at the bottom of a closed hill. And a jackknifed truck at the bottom of the hill by our apartment.
Working from home Thu., got the car from a friends’, shopped, home, work. The usual work from home. Going out to get a laptop for E-failed. It’s getting slushy. More work, dinner, S to bed. Woke up early, E was snoring, so no sleep. Easy in, snowy and icy, but crampons rock. Work.
I have a big list of things to do, and a gamelan party tonight.
