For those who don't know, today is the shortest day of the year! Tomorrow will be longer, and slowly we'll get back to those nice long sunny days we like so much, unless you're a vampire. As with most of the country, there will be no white Christmas here in central PA. In fact, on December 26 the temps are predicted to climb into the upper 50s (F). If these temps keep up, my roses will soon be blooming in January.
I was going to stay in today, but as I was getting my breakfast together, I realized I was low on cereal. The thought did cross my mind that I could cook up some oatmeal instead, however I realized I've become rather spoiled with my morning cereal with fruit and nuts. So, after I take my morning shower, I'll head on over to my local Giant supermarket before it gets busy. I'm also thinking about baking sticky buns for Christmas morning, that will mean stocking up on brown sugar.
Both tomorrow and Sunday afternoon I'll be putting in some hours at the store. Believe me, it's not going to be busy. I may sneak a book in and read. Yes, an actual book... one with pages and a cover. This one to be precise. It's all about the research, you know?
