|Marilyn Monroe and Marilyn Meringue|
This morning I had to wrestle with myself to go out walking with the Fairhaven ladies, but I went, even though it was raining. Not hard enough to convince myself that I should stay inside, and what if it stopped while I was sitting around wishing I had gone? Well, it rained lightly for the entire seven-mile walk, so I didn't stick around for coffee afterwards, realizing that as soon as my feet figured out that I'd stopped, they would decide to get cold (they were squishy wet). Now I am home, warm and toasty, and very glad I went.
This afternoon Judy and I will go to the Bellingham Chamber Chorale to hear their annual Christmas concert. My friend Al sings in it, as he reminded us in an email last week. It should help to get me in the holiday mood. Plus I saw that my community food co-op has just put Christmas wreaths out for sale. When I walked by them this morning (on my way to a latte) the delightful smell was also another reminder that Christmas is not that far away!
