Christmas is a time for being with family and friends. You may have moved to a new city for work or other obligations. Airports are full , airlines are booked out; the pandemic is still around but this year people are stepping out getting vaccinated if needs be just to see their loved ones whom they have not seen since the pandemic or longer.
I went on a few errands yesterday and while exiting the local Walmart I saw two teenagers around 14/15 smoking pot or what smelled like pot mixed with something else. It wasn’t the smell of pot or even worst that they were smoking at such a young age it’s the smell of what they mixed the pot with.
The weather wasn’t bad today. I was able to get much needed shopping done. I haven’t started wrapping my gifts as yet. Have you started? How is the Christmas shopping going?
I made my list, I’m checking it twice just so that I haven’t missed anyone. Making a list helps in that regard as well as keeping me on my toes when it comes to budgeting. It’s important to make a list for shopping as well as sticking to your budget. One big plus is if you can browse for coupons and sales before hand so that you can get the best bang for your buck.
I would love if we all went into the new year with our financials in order.
Ok so this has not worked out as I hoped. The internet service where I’m at is out of pocket. What I’ll do is make the posts and then once service allows I will publish.
I moved to a different location. My family is way up north. The weather is what I’d call bipolar. Last night it was so Windy, trees fell into the road, the officers and firefighters were kept busy. Today, it’s Sunny Sunday with no evidence of what happened last night.
We went shopping at the store just to pick up a few essentials and lots of bottled water. I’m not liking the water here. I met some of my Dad’s friends and we got a chance to catch up.
I saw the most interesting thing in my Dad’s makeshift garden or what’s left of it. A baby squirrel, I’ve never seen one so up close. It moved so fast into the bush I couldn’t get a good picture.
We are going sightseeing. I’m hoping to see as many attractions as possible. The last time I was here I didn’t get a chance to do. I will be here for a few weeks.
I hope that you all are okay and having the best time with your family and friends. Christmas is the time for rekindling friendships and spending time with the ones who matters the most. Catch up with you all on Day 13.
I’ve decided to share not one but five days of Blogmas with you. I am in a different timezone as expected and getting settled was a little challenging getting the cell service or Wi-Fi to post.
Things are a little better and I’m hoping I’ll get to share daily posts.
On Day one of Blogmas I participated in my first virtual Carol Service at work. The pandemic is pretty much atill around and gathering are limited so most events are virtual. The production was well pur together and I was super proud of all the team members that participated. The speaker gave us a charge , fed our aspirations and drive to be better and do better. It was refreshing seeing him in that capacity and so too others that gave him a standing ovation. I was given the opportunity to offer the vote of thanks on behalf the team. Christmas is for family and friends, the pandemic has proven that we need to be around our loved ones more so than ever.
I packed for my 5 week trip. Spending Christmas 🎄 with my family whom I haven’t seen or been with in a few years. I’m excited and looking forward to New memories.
I traveled for the first time on Southwest Airlines. The team was very professional and friendly. My only hiccup was being seated beside a rather hyperactive family. Traveling with kids? a hard pass, unless I’m in first class like Kevin’s parents ( Home Alone)
Went to the mall sand window shopped 🛍. I’ve made my budget and so far so good. I’m excited for Christmas shopping 🛍.
It’s my favorite season of the year, I’m looking forward to sharing with you all.
Blogmas this year is expecting to be different as I hope all being well I will be blogging from a different time zone. I’m looking forward to sharing my experiences on this new journey that I am ready to embark.
You are welcome to join in on the fun. Share your stories using the #BlogmaswithDee. Blogmas officially starts December 1st right up to Christmas Day. 🎄
Are you excited for Blogmas? What are you looking forward to doing?
It’s funny as things seemed to be going great for my blog weird things starts to happen. I finally got some time to check out my favorite blogs, engage and check out the latest happenings.
I’m shocked to learn that I’m no longer able to view my followers. I am not sure if anyone is still here. If you’re still around I’d appreciate it if you not only liked this post but also comment.
I’m just going to take this as an opportunity to start over. Life happens I guess. I have so many things planned out for this blog/website. I’m currently working on my logo and the whole look and feel of it. I’m excited and I can’t wait for you all to see it.
