    I went to a Christmas craft show this morning with a friend from work; I bought a new wreath and some ornaments for gifts for my mom and sister. It's a gloomy day; I'll spend the rest finishing my book and working on report cards.

    Working at school! I'm getting things ready for the rest of the semester as far as planning goes so that I I can start getting ready for next semester. That way I can take the entire Christmas break off and not worry about school!

    Browsed in bookstore & got 2 more coloring books & a word search book. Grocery shopped & that's about it. I'll probably do some work on the computer, then relax for the rest of the night.

    This Saturday I am taking a bunch of pupils from my school to a hockey game. For the majority of them it will be their first ever game. They will be in for a shock when the first check goes in!

    Slept late, breakfast in bed.
    Then we went to post office for holiday stamps for Christmas cards, other in town errands...I love my small town. Holiday lighs in the stores, strolling Broadway with a cup of coffee, stopping in the hardware store where the family members who own the store are incredibly knowledgeable and so helpful...
    Spontaneous stop by a local restaurant with dh for a lunchtime margarita and appies...
    Put up our Christmas lights and pine roping on the porch. I emptied the fall plantings out of the large pots and refilled with white branches, holly and pine clippings from our gardens. So pretty.
    Getting ready for date night! Going to see Mannheim Steamroller tonight. My anniversary gift to dh....
    Hope you are all enjoying the joys this season has to offer.

    I had a free Sat & saw the movies Krampus and The Night Before. They were good. Krampus got got a little bit cheesy before the very end. I won't say anymore in case someone else wants to watch it.

    Went to pick out our Christmas tree yesterday and I decorated it today. It always takes me a long time--every ornament has a memory!

    Good luck, Mrs. C! I love to read, so maybe I should keep track, but I think I have already read 3 books this year but don't have the titles.

    I seem to be on a movie-going kick lately! Last weekend, I saw Triple 9 & The Boy & this past weekend, I saw The Other Side of the Door and London Has Fallen. They were all good!

    Last Wed., I spent the day in Santa Monica & went to my favorite FM (farmer's market) & got my pesto sauces again, veggies for salads, & some dried fruit. Then, had a nice lunch at Burger Lounge, & walked the shopping areas.

    This summer I started crossfit and I found out I was really good at weight lifting. This Saturday my gym had a clinic on deadlift with a power lifting coach. I got a new PR of 325lbs! It was amazing. I'm still kind of on a high from it. When I got home I took a long nap. then watched "Captain Phillips" and drank my home brewed beer.

    Well it is a nice sunny morning here in the UK. With luck I can get out in the garden in a while and tidy it a bit while it is dry. Then we need to get out to the local shops to try and find a suitable birthday present for my brother. Later England are taking on Wales in the 6 nations rugby tournament. This is always a grudge game and so I have a box of ale and a curry ready to enhance the experience. Hopefully England will continue their winning streak. Mrs B is having a spring clean but I will insist the hoover is put away before the game starts!

    First day of our March Break! My sister and I are going to visit my mom (about 5 hours away) for a couple of days. She's had some health struggles lately and needs some help with some things around the house. It's supposed to be a beautiful day--record-setting highs!

    It finally looks and feels like spring today! I'm going to run some errands and then I'm going to go for an actual run! I moved over the winter and live near some beautiful parks now. The weather is finally warm enough to enjoy them!!

    Yay, England win although Wales run them close at the end. Now it all goes down to the next weekend and England must beat France to take the championship.

    Not very glamorous, but it was a great day to hang out the laundry! I love the smell of fresh clothing.
