If we were having coffee I’d tell you all about the drive I took last night! When I was growing up my family had a tradition, we’d all pile into our big old van and drive around looking at the Christmas lights while listening (and often singing along with) Christmas music.
It had been years since I’d gone out for a Christmas Lights drive. When I lived in Vermont and when I lived in Maine I did the occasional walks to look at the lights, but not a drive. Yesterday, though I took mom out to dinner and then drove her around a while in various neighborhoods to admire all the lights. It was such fun (and the weather cooperated with just light drizzle!)
I’d also share my excitement about the first in a few prizes I’ll be receiving over the next week or so! The Nerd-Block was part of my prize for winning the October Challenge co-hosted by Nerd In The Brain and Part Time Monster!
It had some cool stuff in it! A few things have been earmarked (or already given) as presents to those who will appreciate them more than me, but I am super-extra-excited about my special Ghostbusters Wallet that was included!!
I’ve also been doing some real reflecting on my writing, blogging, and reading, thinking about my plans for the coming year. I’m excited about some of the plans that are coming together and some of the writing resolutions I’m starting to settle on — I’ll share them all soon!
How has your week been?
Today’s post is a part of the Weekend Coffee Share, graciously hosted by Part Time Monster every weekend. A time for us to come together, share a cup of coffee (or our beverage of choice) to share some of what is going on in our lives. It’s a lovely check-in!
