I am about 90% DONE with my Hanukkah shopping! This is YUGE for me in October. I have also gone out of my way to snatch up stocking stuffers and gifts for extended family when I see them instead of waiting until the December rush. December me is going to be THRILLED, but, as you can tell from the caps and the exclamation points, October me is also pretty effing stoked.
It got C O L D here this weekend, and I LOVED it. We had the coziest weekend I could possibly imagine with lots of baking and cooking and general togetherness. My one complaint is that it was too wet to have a fire either night and also that The Righteous Gemstones is over. What will I do without that delight half hour of full frontal nudity every Sunday night?
First grade! Not tool old for a themed Thanksgiving jumper, but old enough to choose her own book from the school library and read it. Is anything in this entire planet better than a first-grader?
