Happy Tuesday Everyone! it's a rainy, dreary, dismal day here today. It isn't light rain and it isn't pouring either just a constant rain. I have all the lights on as it's just too dark without them. My daughter in law was supposed to have her surgery at 10:30 and she was all prepped and ready to go. Seems she's still waiting and the doctor is running behind. I imagine she's anxious having to just wait until they wheel her into the operating room. That's the latest text I got from my son. Yesterday I got a huge box delivered from my Aunt and Uncle for Christmas. It's filled with all sorts of breakfast goodies (pancake mix, Vermont maple syrup, sorted jams and other stuff). I called her this morning to say thanks and how much I appreciate their thoughtfulness. After we hung up from our phone chat, coffee and catching up I felt guilty that she beat me in sending off a gift. Every year we send each other something but I had only online shopped for some ideas without making a decision or purchase. Time to take action and I ordered them a gift basket from Harry & David and it's says it's ready to ship. Hopefully they'll get it in about a week. Right after I hit check-out cart our internet went out. What a stroke of luck that it didn't go out while I was in the middle of my purchase. It's back on now There's so many options to choose from when looking for a gift basket. Do you ever send gift baskets?

No, I don't send gift baskets. And it's dreary and damp here today, too, but not outright raining at the moment. As if the weather isn't enough to give me a headache, I awoke with a nosebleed, and of course, the roofers are making quiite a racket.

When I was working three jobs and didn't have time to stop to think, I sent gift baskets to everyone... I only slowed down on the weekend. I worked as a night clerk in a motel on Friday and Saturday from 6 pm to 6 am. I took Pretty to work with me. She and I played board games or cards until time for her to go to bed and then I had time between customers to do what I wanted. (Mostly, that meant I slept for around five hours...) I've never gotten a gift basket for myself. I always hoped people really did enjoy them.
I hope that the surgery is over and your daughter-in-law is healing. Even if it is only a minute or two waiting in the hallway to be wheeled in is nerve wracking. I do not send alot of gift baskets anymore. I did find a nice place here in this city, but they do not delivery outside of the city, and before we moved we sent alot from a nice fruit place, they had great fruit baskets.
