Today Harm asked if she could have Britney's new album "Circus" (yeah she likes her music, even though she thinks she's a bit of an idiot). I said no because we had already finished the shopping, but then I turned around and ordered a copy. Now she'll have something under the tree she is not expecting to be there.

About halfway through The Time of Singing, and realizing how much I am enjoying it.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

My best thing today (last night) was the annual Christmas dinner for my husband's flying club. Besides being a wonderful evening, the dh announced that he will be leaving the club (we willl still keep in touch with the people, of course).

Not that flying isn't nice, but there are only so many airports within a reasonable range of us, and in 20 years he's flown all the club planes and seen all those airports a gazillion times. Beyond a certain distance, it's more economical to go commercial.

With Aviation gas prices going through the roof (no, they didn't come down when the rest did) there are simply more important ways to use the $$.

I love a good christmas party. My husband works for a large company and their company parties are always such fun, good food, live bands, and such nice people to talk with, not to mention door prizes that would make Santa smile.

a lady on a horse and a knight walking beside her, it's a painting that I saw and fell in love with but with a hefty price tag I had to settle.

I got to duck out of my fiance's Christmas party last night!! I can't stand those affairs and his boss's wife is just really awful...add in alcohol and she's even worse! It's a pretty small company so everyone is always in each others faces and there's no PC way to avoid her if I wanted to. Honestly I did feel well enough to go but I decided to milk the fact that I've been sick all week as an excuse to stay home and bake fruitcakes! It worked beautifully! :D
