Has anybody gone Christmas shopping? Helen? The streets and shops in town are already looking like we are going to have a white Christmas, and the sparkling lights and festive decorations try hard to make us forget it is constantly raining. I have not bought any presents yet.

“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace.” Milan Kundera.
My sis and I are just giving some Christmas money to our nieces, so we don't buy any gifts. Oh...I'll get something for my sister that I live with. The number of relatives we have has really dwindled down. We always give a present to "Miss Jean," a longtime family friend. I just remembered her. I always anticipate some small "Christmas miracles" in my life this time of year---already experienced a small one tonight, and I'm grateful. Oh...we'll give presents to "the rugrats" some black kids in town I've been giving things to, for several years. Four kids in that family. I'm on the outs with my other sister right now but expect we'll figuratively shake hands and make up, as has happened before. Our brother, unfortunately, has very little to do with us, with my sister I live with and me. He keeps his distance. He says it's because it makes him too sad to visit the house we all grew up in now that our parents have passed away. That's where we live now. It makes me sad to visit where he lives out in the country across from where the old family home place farm house was torn down. To see it's no longer there. Or the mobile home and the barn I decorated, which burned down.

I'll get a few things for the grandkids and that is about all.  

I'm trying to get rid of most everything except necessities so I want nothing. A gift to me is merely an annoyance that I have to throw away or give away.  I'm making a small donation to an animal shelter here. And that is about it!
