Day 22: Maybe Christmas... Random Thoughts on a Rainy Sunday

Sunday, December 22, 2019

-"Maybe Christmas" he thought, "doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more!"-
~ Dr. Seuss

What are your plans for Christmas Eve?
And what about Christmas Day?
How are you celebrating Christmas? Big? Small? Alone? Family? Friends?
What are you feeling? Hopeful? Joyous? Sentimental? Sad? Lonely?

Today is a rainy day; it's supposed to rain all day.
I love rainy days. However, I feel like I'm not well equipped any more to spend an entire day at home productively. I'm at a loss for ideas for things to do.

With the internet invading everybody's lives, somehow, over the years, I seem to have forgotten how to keep myself busy without staring at my monitor. Where have all my hobbies gone? What were all my hobbies?

We hosted a Christmas party this past Friday night. It was a blast. We don't host often, but when we do, we throw awesome parties. Good friends, good neighbors, good food, no hard liquor, and live music.

Well, I really don't want to spend my day in front of that screen. Instead I'll grab the puppy (as in 11 year old Dutch shepherd) and go for a walk. Supposed to be stormy later on so I best get going soon.

Afterwards, I think I'll go shopping but not. I have no shopping to do. It'll be fun to go to the stores and just browse and take in the pre Christmas craziness. No waiting in any checkout lines. That'll get me out of the house and moving for a little bit.

Grabbing my rain boots and umbrella now.
Happy Sunday everyone!

    Sounds like a fun way to spend a rainy day. Does your dog like walking in the rain?

    Not really celebrating Christmas this year so soon after Mum passed. But we are invited by friends on Boxing Day. Also a girlfriend gave me a beautiful handbag last week as an early Christmas present

    I am working Xmas Eve, Xmas Day and Boxing Day - so I have planned my week to include nice things around those days.

    I know what you mean about the internet, and our hobbies/pastimes. I'm the same, I turn the phone/computer/tablet on and spend a lot of time on them. I do manage to read a bit, exercise a bit, knit a bit - but too often the internet will take my time when I could be doing something else.
