I promised y'all pictures from our trip, and I haven't forgotten. I'll try to do that later today when I have extricated myself from the garland and Christmas lights that will be surrounding me today.
Having been out of town for Thanksgiving has put me days behind on my decorating. I've still got scarecrows sitting around my house, for goodness' sakes.
Having no real coherent thoughts to share, I figured it was time for a list of random things about me. Here are seven:
1. I cannot go to bed the night I return from a trip unless my entire toiletry bag is unpacked and my vanity is restored to its pre-trip order. I left the rest of the BIG suitcase until yesterday, but all my personal stuff must be in its rightful place before I can rest my head.
2. Once Friday after Thanksgiving hits, it must be Christmas music all the time for me. I adore Christmas music and must be playing it from the moment I wake until my iPod lulls me to sleep at night. I play Christmas music all year long, but non stop throughout the holidays. The soundtrack from Polar Express accompanies me this morning.
3. My heart has been filled almost painfully full with thoughts of adoption again. God has used numerous ways over the past three weeks to assure me that the longing He has put in my heart for another child is not in vain. His timing is perfect, and He will fulfill that longing when He chooses.
4. I adore Lindt chocolate truffles, but I rarely bite into them. I usually put them in my mouth and let them melt there. My favorites are the dark chocolate and the mint.
5. My favorite thing about Thanksgiving is the cranberry orange salad I always had growing up. I must have it at Thanksgiving or Christmas, or my holiday is not complete. I made some Saturday night for a potluck Sunday so I wouldn't miss out on the experience this year.
6. Ragg socks make me itch, even if they are made out of cotton. I love how they feel as slippers in the winter, so I put smooth cotton socks on inside of them and scuff away in my cool ragg socks from here.
7. I always sing "egg shell sees" when singing Angels We Have Heard on High. I learned it in second grade and have never been able to change it.
So there you have it. Seven oddities that make me who I am. If you just have nothing better to do, go here for 200 more : )
