When I was going crazy, trying to think of stocking stuffer gift ideas for the adults in the extended family, I remembered that Cousin Steve plays the bass. So I think that the next time I’m at the mall, I’m going to make a point to buy some Bass Strings to put into his stocking! Won’t he be surprised to see something like that instead of a candy bar or an orange!
In today’s economy, people are trying to save money everywhere they can. So when Sophie told me that her daughter wants to learn how to play the violin, I suggested that she check out different places to buy used instruments for orchestra
Thanksgiving is when we’re suppose to give thanks for the blessings of the year. Well that’s something we all need to do every day. I sure do. I’m so thankful for my daughter and my wonderful family. I just don’t know what I would do without them and don’t want to find out either any time soon.
As I’m sure you have figured out, my grandmother is my most special person in the world (after my daughter.) She’s my rock and life just wouldn’t be the same without her so I am so thankful she’s still in my life and hope and pray she will be for many, many more years.
Sometimes I wonder if I’m the only one that buys a lot of things for myself during the Christmas season. During the course of the year, when people try to buy me gifts I usually ask them for a gift card. I hold on to them until the next Christmas Holiday shopping season, then I use them to buy things for myself! Naturally I do Christmas shopping to buy gifts for other people too, but it just seems smart to take advantage of the best sale prices when they are out there!
I guess that I’m not the only one that does that, however, because I saw on Facebook last night that Brenda was bragging that she has finished her ukulele classes and is planning to check out the good deals on ukuleles and buy herself a new ukulele! I hope she posts a YouTube video of herself playing a song so I can see her play! We live too far from each other for me to be able to visit with her in person.

This is the first year I have been old enough to vote and I DID IT!! I hope you did too. My grandmother told me that this is one of the most important things I can do to help our country. It doesn’t matter if the person I voted for wins or loses, my voice was heard either way. That’s a pretty empowering feeling to know that my one tiny voice will be heard. I just hope the best man wins no matter which one it is. I just hope they help all of us and not a select few.
