-4 (The temperature AND number of Christmas gifts purchased)
My husband and I are up in Vermont for a long weekend when I should be home getting ready for the holidays! I have -4 (yes, that’s negative 4) Christmas presents purchased and no ideas for anyone. I came up with -4 because while shopping up here yesterday, I bought MYSELF four gifts when I should have been buying for others. We spent several hours in our favorite indie bookstore, The Northshire Bookstore, and we bought lots of stocking stuffers!
Today we’re off to some used bookstores in Brattleboro where I hope to pick up some books I’ve seen around the blogs–The Day the Falls Stood Still–comes to mind. Maybe I’ll just give everyone on my list a book for Christmas! It’s nice and snowy up here–a real winter wonderland–and the Taylor Farm in Londonderry does sleigh rides. When we stopped by yesterday, the owner was kind enough to let us take some photos.
I hope these put you in a festive mood. Enjoy the weekend and Happy Chanukah to those who celebrate! (13 days until Christmas for the rest of you!)
