Long time no see, huh?
I’m sorry for the lack of updates for the past 2 weeks. I’ve been settling into my new apartments, which until now, did not have internet. I tried to log on and post via my phone, but it’s been slow going.
So, now that internet has been restored to me, I will be able to post a bit more frequently.
Friday afternoon, I got out of work a little bit early, and went for a hike with my Auntie. She picked me up from work and drove us to a farm on the outskirts of Sleepy Hallow. We walked for about 2 hours (until well after the sun went down) before heading home for the night. It was all really fun.
Saturday, I went down to the city with Mom, to do a bit of shopping. We ate lunch out and then visited a bunch of stores in search of heavy sweaters and snow boots. We found the boots, but unfortunately not the sweaters. It seems that the offerings in women’s wear this year are a bit… lacking.
Today, I continued my Christmas shopping. I was able to find a few things I think Mom would like, and something that I was looking at for Brother, but I am having a hard time of it this year. I have no idea what to get anyone… everything makes me wonder, “does XX really need this?” or “Will XX ever have a chance to actually use this?” or “Is there something XX can use more?”
I am loath to buy anyone on my list some stupid little gift set or the like. Most of my friends are men, who have no use for scented shower gels or jewelry. The three ladies on my list don’t care for that sort of thing either. To be honest, video games used to be my go-to gift in the past, but none of us have time or energy to play them much anymore. That leaves clothes, food, or money.
Due to some events out of my control, I will be taking a short break from updating this blog. Don’t worry, I’m not abandoning it, but I simply have too much on my plate at the current moment. Thanks for your understanding.
Last night my phone (with the broken camera) died for good. Brother was able to set me up with a temp phone until April, when I renew my contract and plan to upgrade to an iPhone. Because of this, I now have a mobile camera, from which I can continue taking photos for this blog. Expect more updates soon.
Happy New Year, everyone. I hope it’s a good one thus far. I am hoping to return to regular activity after the hols and after I get the camera in my phone repaired. So, until then, please continue to be patient while updates are sporatic. To keep this blog from suffering a long hiatus, I will be posting some pictures taken since my last post using other sources, such as my camera (when it decides to work) and my brother’s iphone. Thank you for your understanding.
