Book Shopping at Borders

Marilyn mistressmarilyn and I went shopping at the Gresham Borders book store, to get our presents for our Writing Circle Christmas gift exchange, for this coming Monday night.

We all agreed to get something writing-oriented -- so it will be interesting to see what people come up with, I think!

I'm not saying what I got, but I'm really happy with it.

I also bought the book "The Miracles of Archangel Michael," by Doreen Virtue. I couldn't put it down when I saw it. (I used to always pray to Michael, so I can't wait to read it.)

So now I have "The Shack" and this to read! I tried to start "The Shack" when we got home last night, but I didn't get very far. I was just too tired and fell fast asleep!

In not-so-happy news, we got a phone call from our neighbor Jim telling us that a package had been stolen off our front porch. (sigh) The empty box addressed to me was discovered down the street. This is the second package recently that's been taken, and it's a bit upsetting. It's really not about replacing the item, so much, as the idea that we've got a thief somewhere in our neighborhood. We used to be able to leave things on the porch with no issues, so this seems a real shame...

Jim said that Chuck (another neighbor) has seen the person who is probably doing it. He follows the UPS truck around on his bike! Hopefully he'll be caught soon, so this can stop.

No baking or decorating yet, but maybe later tonight. Or tomorrow. We're not putting any pressure on ourselves about it. We'll want the tree done and some decorations up for Monday night, but the cookies can wait if need be. Anyway, we're relaxed and enjoying time off, I can tell you that!

On that note, I'm taking a nap now...
