We've been busy and sick, so we haven't gotten to make Christmas cookies yet, and our small box of Christmas decorations is still at our old house. All the same though . . . it's only thirteen days until Christmas and that is quite exciting. Today I helped Mom with some of her online Christmas shopping. I've done horribly with my own Christmas shopping done. In fact, I only have one Christmas present purchased: a doodletop for Jason. Have you ever noticed that guys are hard to shop for? I have four of them. Jason is still easy, but Ben has reached an awkward in-between stage and Sam and Dad are fairly impossible. But hey, if all else fails, I know what candy they like best ;)
I haven't been reading much lately. Today I finished Among the Shadows by L.M. Montgomery and I'm still working on A Long, Long Time Ago and Essentially True. I've been stuck on it for several days, but it's not the book's fault, because the book is quite nice. It's just a mood or a cycle that I'm in. I only have fifty pages though, so I think that I can finish it today.
Tomorrow Sam and I have a driving session. I'm not really looking forward to it. I'll be glad when driving school is over. I don't like having my nighttime eaten up. Night is when I feel most alive and creative. I like night very much, and I like to have freedom when it's nighttime. I understand that early mornings are inspiring, and it even feels right that early morning should be best. But I've always liked night. I can't help it.
