This week I’m taking my “summer vacation” (it’s a long story), and while it’s not exactly bikini weather anymore, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

Instead of reading by a pool with iced tea, I’m reading curled on the couch under a fluffy blanket with hot tea. I’m composing a “baking wish list” while watching Holiday Inn. I still have to get Little Guy to school, and cook and clean…but maybe I’ll indulge in a little nap first. And tomorrow, I will tackle the Mall again so I don’t have to do it on the remaining Saturdays with the rest of the walking dead.

Happy Wednesday!
