For my dear friends in North Carolina, I wanted to let you know that if you are still desperately looking for health insurance coverage, my good friend Julie found insurance here that took care of her needs. You don’t have to spend much more time looking around and asking all of your friends and family what to do. Thank goodness for the Internet – it certainly is making a lot of things in life a lot easier to accomplish!
Although I admit I stayed up too late last night and didn’t get much sleep, I am having a bad case of the Blues today. Never have been a big fan of Mondays, and the alarm clock was not my friend this morning when it jarred me awake. It was still dark outside when I got dressed and left the house, and the day is so overcast and grey that I don’t think the sun is going to come out today at all. So it is a dark and gloomy day, a boring day at work doing inventory, and I’m just not a perky girl today.
Poking around the cable on demand, I found a cool feature that I did not know about. Comcast has a channel at Christmas that is a video of burning yule logs. They play soft Christmas music in the background and there are no commercials. This was really nice to find – I hope they do it again next year.
Seem like in the winter time I am craving beef. I want pot roasts, chili, steaks, swiss steak, beef stew. It all sounds very comforting and the taste is so much more satisfying in the cold weather and shorter days than the fish and chicken that is featured on my dinner menus during the summer. There used to be a commercial narrated by a deep, Texas drawl that says, “Beef. It’s what’s for dinner.” That is so true for me this week!
The Postal Service says that today is the deadline for getting first class mail delivered by Christmas. So I have to hurry up and get the last of my Christmas cards signed and addressed. I only have about 5 or 6 left to do, but I was so tired last night I could barely keep my eyes open, so I did not get to finish.
Thank goodness the post office is only a few miles from my house and they accept mail up until 9:00 pm. So I will make the deadline and my friends will get their cards on time.
