Today I got the last of my items that I ordered for friends for Christmas. I cheated a little for one friend and used credit card points to purchase a gift card for a home store. She recently redid her bathroom so I thought she could buy something useful for the house. Plus I can just tuck it into her Christmas card. I made coasters for a friend with a picture of the Santa House in Victoria Park. She is incredibly homesick so I thought that would be appropriate. Now to get it in the mail since it’s going a long ways!
That’s one of the things that I’m going to miss the most this year is seeing someone open their gift. There won’t be hot chocolate and gift exchange with my friend this year.
Anticipation is a good work for the year 2020 because we always seem to be waiting for the other shoe to drop. We are waiting to see what the numbers are if families will even be able to celebrate together. I don’t know whether I will put up a tree this year. I think it will depend on how I feel in December. I’ll certainly put up decorations.
I’m hoping I can maybe Facetime with my friend in Australia. Maybe a phone call with my coffee buddy. Just making the best of it.
