December Daily: Day 17 and 18

I came to the realization the other day that if I didn't finish this December Daily by the end of December it would never be finished. Since that time I have picked up my pace. Well, not in actuality, but in my head. Sometimes I can't make my head and actuality coincide. It's nothing serious. I am just lazy. Anyway with saying that, here is day 17 and 18:

Day 17 was the party for all the office tenants. It's potluck, so all I really have to do is show up and be social. That is hard. I'm really not a social person. Well, I am when I feel like it. The party went well. No fist fights or bloody noses, because I behaved myself. Yay me! However, some routiness would have made a more interesting layout. Maybe next year.

Day 18 was my sister's birthday. I have the luck of having both my sister and brother's birthdays in December. Growing up I felt ripped off. First, my mom misses Christmas eve festivities twice. Second, each time she does she comes home with a huge stocking with a dang baby that I have to love, protect and share all things precious with. Not good. I'm older now and realize they are here for good, so I am trying to accept that and get on with my life. LOL! I was a little spoiled, don't you think?

I am now working on 19 and 20, but have to take a time out to go visit the Falls - Minnehaha Falls, which means laughing waters. It is hard for me to believe that an American Indian language actually used the word ha ha for laugh. I am betting it was some pioneer that thought it sounded Indian and pretended and then convinced all it was. If I learn differently, I will certainly let you know.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope Saturday is good to you!

OMG, your book is turning out just as great as the cover suggests! I love love page 13 and the making stuff page. I'm watching your progress girl, closely, very closely. I'm checking in on you tonight, in fact. I'm cracking on mine - you better be too.
