I made a few donations that I had been putting off. It gave me the illusion that I might be doing something right in this awfully wrong twisting world. One of my charities sent me an annual report...much better than a stupid calendar! I have a dozen of those 12 months graphics for next year already and I am of the age that I try not to look that far ahead!
Some of the items on the list are first-world luxuries, such as checking the weather for the Month of October in China...so that I can see if need to make a shopping trip for additions to the wardrobe.
Others are a bit more tedious such as sorting and working on the four photos for our Master Gardener's Facebook page update, and re-scheduling volunteers for our final month of working with the art camp kids.
I will get the two grand-boys at the end of next week for about 4 days as a surprise change in schedule. But hubby is already scheduling them for an overnight fishing trip, so not sure if I will squeeze in any passive time with them.
I splurged on two original works of art that I have wanted to have framed for years. One is something my eldest grandson did while he was in grade school and I stole it from his mother's kitchen wall to frame as a surprise for her, and the other is something my son did when he was around thirteen or fourteen just before we had our tempest-tossed relationship. I will give it as a surprise holiday gift. They both have a lot of emotion attached and would only be framed by someone who loved them.
Thanks for loyally stopping by and extra thanks if you leave a word or two.
