Only two more weekends until Christmas! Have you finished all your shopping? Here at Chez R, we have not. Finances being what they are, we’re scraping up what we can to put together what will be a lean Christmas for our loved ones. Everyone should manage to get a little something, but it won’t be like it has been in years past.
Mr. R and I are last on the list, but that’s okay. We have what’s important anyway, the kind of thing that can’t be wrapped and put under a tree. And I’m perfectly content with that, as long as we get something out to the family.
I’m looking forward to Christmas Day itself. It should be calm and bright, no hustle or bustle. In fact, it will be the first day I can plan on sleeping late for the foreseeable future.
As content as I am, I’m still in the mood for a little Christmas blues, so I’m starting out with the incomparable B.B. King. There are many versions of Merry Christmas Baby, but his is the best.
The second helping (the B-side, LOL) is Jon Bon Jovi with Please Come Home for Christmas.
I hope you’re snuggled warm and safe with those you love. Be sure to give them a hug. Happy Saturday night!
