Holidy stuff

December 21st, 2013 at 12:37 pm

So I managed to get in a 40-hour work week this past week, but by Friday, the place was really quiet as half the people seem to have lots of PTO.

I got a few nice unexpected gifts from people, including an amaryllis bulb from my boss, an ornament filled with loose tea and a $5 Dunkin' Donuts gift card, as well as a bag of holiday chocolates.

At the office party Secret Santa, I got a $20 barnes & noble gift card...perfect.

Today I had a long list of errands to make and did most of them before the craziness of the traffic and other shoppers got to me. I washed off most of the road salt from my car.

I'm working Monday and Tuesday of next week (it will be dead) and then will have off til the following Monday.

There is an interesting workshop in town I'd like to do during the time I'm off from work....it's an introductory workshop on Chinese and Korean style brushwork. Just a $5 fee and you learn to paint four classic plants: bamboo, orchid, cherry blossom and chrysanthemum. Being held at the church on my street....how convenient is that?

I decided to make a chocolate cheese cake and three nut pie for Xmas dinner.

I was feeling kind of dizzy for a while so just lay in bed and read the paper. Got through the one-year anniversary of 12/14 okay. There are so many groups doing healing things in town. The arts workshop mentioned above is just one example.

    Oh, you have me wanting to experience airbrush art now. I've always wanted to go to the glass factory in downtown Louisville to blow up a vase.

    The workshop sounds neat ... will supplies be provided? If so, well worth the price!
