Today, people will be spending madly, spending far more than they can afford, a few weeks before Christmas. Crazy. What is it that makes folk want to take part in such madness ? Why the yearning for "stuff" that they don't need ? Here, I'm trying my best to be rid of " stuff ", trying not to be bound by it, a slave to it. I must be getting old. I'm beginning to sound like my parents.
On a lighter note, I haven't been able to access my blog dashboard for a couple of days. It was quite frustrating as I had thoughts in my head that I wanted to share, and which I have now forgotten. That's the way it is these days. If I don't act immediately, the thought disappears.
Today will be a quiet, sensible day. I won't be spending money, I'll be earning it. My ebay sales are mounting up, who would have thought it ? People are buying my old "stuff", and I'm encouraging them with low prices and cheerful descriptions. I am a black Friday vendor. Hypocrisy !
I will swish a feather duster over the furniture this morning, run the vacuum gently over the carpets, list a few more items on ebay, and potter about. I've just finished my book, Flesh and Blood by Patricia Cornwell. I was disappointed towards the end of it. I lost interest, but soldiered on to the finish. I have so many books on my kindle, so will settle down with something different for a few hours this afternoon. Mother is going to bake for the weekend. She's good at it, so I leave her to it. It keeps her busy and she feels useful. Hubby is attending a breakfast meeting and will be back mid morning. It looks cold outside...I haven't put my nose out the door yet. The sky is clear though, so maybe we'll have some sunshine after the last few miserable grey days. That's our day so I'd better get it started.
