Getting ready

I'm getting ready to go on a trip.  A quilting cruise.  It's at an odd time of year which means I've got a lot of holiday prep to do before I leave as well as packing.  We celebrate Yule (the winter solstice) here which means I have to have everything done by 12/20.  I get home from the trip on the 15th.  Sooooo.  My gift shopping is done but now there's furniture moving, house cleaning, tree decorating, wrapping, making meringues  and........ whew!  Luckily I do have this whole week.  I am looking forward to this trip, though.  It's 12 days and it's where it's warm.  And sunny, I hope.  I need to get away where there's no phone, no newspaper, no TV (not that there's much on it anyway) no drama.  My cabin mate has never done a cruise before so I'm hoping to show her how much fun it can be.
Now it's off to get a couple of table top trees.   Y'all have a Merry Chrismahanukwanzakah.
But before that.....Happy Thanksgiving.

I haven't written in a while.  I haven't had anything to say.  Don't really have much to say this morning except I'll be glad when these bloody elections are over.  The ads make me want to vomit.  I don't think any of the candidates will do as they promise.  I'm glad I got rid of my land line.  At least I didn't have to put up with all those annoying calls.  When are TPTB going to realize that the government needs to be run like a business?  You and I can't spend money we don't have why should it?  WE live on a budget, so should TPTB. 
I'm glad to see our Marine was released.  He should never have spent any time in jail in Mexico.  His spending that much time only shows what little respect the man in the White House has for American citizens. Yes, I know, we never get the whole story. 
As for what's going on in Ferguson?  Enough is enough.  And the mom giving a speech to the UN?  Really?  The future does not look bright.  I think I just may start storing dry goods (like hell it's hoarding!).
Okay, enough rant for today. Y'all have a good day and remember:  Believe nothing of what you hear and only half of what you see.
