Greetings and good morning one & all. I hope & trust everyone had a good weekend preparing us all for the adventures of the week.
Pondering: whether I'll send Christmas cards this year other than those I can hand deliver. Canada Post workers are engaged in rotating strikes across the country which has several retailers worried about sales for the Christmas season of gifts & cards. Amazon.ca has even spoken to the government about loss of sales. SO, our federal government has been debating in parliament whether they should legislate the workers back to work - oh that makes the postal workers very angry! I think this is a situation with no winners & I don't want my cards caught up in the dispute of no delivery or work to rule banter, especially since making cards is a lot of work, a labour of love yes but to be lost in the mail ...
Receiving: lots of emails reminding me about picking One Little Word for 2019. After I get over the shock that it's going to be 2019, I realize I haven't given any thought (yet) to picking OLW. I've liked this year's choice of Focus - I may just keep it & re-use next year. What about you? Given any thoughts to picking one little word for the year?
Watched: we recently saw two movies at home on the TV movie network; Christopher Robin & Crazy Rich Asians. We liked both, there was no violence, no swearing. Christopher Robin was our favourite of the two, a really sweet movie.
TV Watching: While folding laundry, I've watched a few back to back episodes of the Christmas Cookie Challenge, which is most appropriate as I've been assigned to baking a few dozen cookies for our church Christmas Bazaar this weekend. I'll be making nothing as fancy as the bakers on this show. Some of the cookies are works of art & I would hesitate to eat them. I don't like to try anything new when I'm baking on this scale - tried & true is my motto; Lemon Chocolate Chip & Eggnog Cinnamon Bar (cut into shapes).
