Wednesday was my last day of work for the year. The last day of work before Christmas break is always rather quiet and this Wednesday was no exception. Usually I eschew the last regular day of work and take a vacation day just to avoid it, but not this time. It was deadly dull though. 🙄
On Thursday, Anne and I walked up to downtown Clayton. We met Edie at First Watch for breakfast. Anne presented Edie with the sweater that she had added edging. The sweater is to be a gift to one of Edie’s nieces. It was pouring after breakfast, so we asked Edie for a ride home. We would have gotten soaked otherwise. On the way out I snapped the picture for today’s header, of a row of Quaker Oats containers.
After we got home we quickly turned around and this time drove to a new big box computer store near the house. I got an enclosure for the old computer’s hard drive. As I was walking towards the back of the store, I walked by a guy on a step ladder. At first I thought he was working on wire chases in the ceiling, but as it turned out he was trying to fix the store’s model train setup. Then I recognized him. He is the same guy that I blogged about a few day’s ago. His name is Dan and this is the guy that has turned his front yard into an elaborate model railroad diorama. Saint Louis really is a small town. Speaking of which, we bumped into Joanie at our next stop, the grocery store. We finished the day watching, It’s a Wonderful Life.
Friday, Christmas Day brought the most snow that we have seen so far this season, about half an inch. According to Cindy, the weather girl, a White Christmas requires a minimum of one inch of snow. So we had a White Christmas, sort of. The picture with this post is of some chocolates that I got Anne. They are Christopher Elbow’s Artisanal Chocolates. They almost look too good to eat.
When someone suggested that they were too pretty to eat, I immediately said, “No, we’ll take a picture, and then we can eat them.”
Pooh the pragmatist
