What have I learned today?
hmmm, that when you child says something over & over to you like..."Mama I want to have a lemon party". Do it. Even though it sounds completely odd & I had other things planned. What a wonderful completely special Lemon Party it was....it is lemon season y'no & we had just picked a bunch of them.
Can't believe Christmas is right around the corner!
Of coarse I can't forget Thanksgiving! What a wonderful time to reflect on all that we should more often.
I guess we are about 5 weeks out for the big HoHoHo!
It kinda bugs me that Thanksgiving just gets skipped. I mean I know why because...well, money. Stores just want your money & there is no better way to do that than remind you that you NEED to remember Christmas shopping. Promoting Thanksgiving is really done by the grocers I guess. Because well, we are suppose to eat turkey & dressing right?
Isn't it odd that Christmas has become all about obsene shopping & gift giving. How did that happen? Wasn't it about a baby that was born & some people just brought some baby gifts?
