A Day Of Fasting
I've been eyeballing the cookies I baked all last week but I'm not allowed food so suffer I will.
We'd been thinking of a quick trip to Vegas over Christmas but all of a sudden prices have gone up substantially. I heard on the news that sixty percent of Canadians were traveling this holiday so maybe that's why. We will be alone this year, just the two of us rambling around our abode trying not to be sad. I always envy my friends who have siblings and parents still alive at this time of the year.
I will keep myself busy knitting and eating those darn cookies. I still want to buy a spinning wheel but first I would like to learn how to spin. There are no classes offered in my part of town and my only way of learning are through watching Youtube videos. Can you really learn that way? Do I take a chance and purchase an expensive wheel on the chance that I can learn? Tough decision but I suppose I'll make it soon. There is also the matter of which wheel to get that is the most economical and will do the job.
By the way, Leonard Cohen was absolutely amazing. For a 78 year old man, he put on an absolutely fantastic show. He spent almost 4 hours on stage with 3 encores. It was a performance not to be missed and I thank my offspring for the tickets.
If I don't get back here I want to wish whoever still reads this stuff a Very Merry Christmas and an amazing New Year to all...ciao
