So there are a few benefits to getting up in the dark. One is, now that I'm adjusted, having time to run all kinds of errands and things at the end of the day. This week I successfully attended two yoga classes, made unusually good banana bread, went to the library, got a haircut, and went to Costco, all things I would have failed at in the first months of this job. So that's good. I am almost stocked up for the holiday party, so this weekend I can start making candy.
Except, this weekend I have three parties and a concert. Argh! The concert was this afternoon, and it was fun, if not totally stylish:
I had to add a little bling to save myself from dying of boredom. But I do love playing good Christmas music!
The parties are ALL on Sunday. The first one is my next-door neighbor's 90th birthday, followed by my best friend's gingerbread house making party. And then we are going to dinner in Berkeley for my sister's birthday. So it is going to be a tight schedule.
