Am watching the Packer/Seahawk game, and I'm more of a Packer fan. Rats is the summary.

We only got a couple of inches in Seattle, so off to work I went. The commute was pretty light because everyone north of us was snowed in. Tonight I did a crazy thing and did my 8th Ave NW walk. Crazy because it was snowing a bit, there was plenty of ice and I was watching cars slip and slide around. I took it slow and discovered that my balance was much, much better than it had been in a long time. I'm never going to ice skate, but at least I'm not going to be as afraid of ice as I used to be. Tomorrow morning will be the acid test though. Everything will have frozen up good and solid and since I live on a ridge, its downhill no matter how I go.

But at work today I found that I'm in command for the rest of the week. My boss was going to come back today from the East Coast but was detained.

Giving my sister 8 months of a fruit of the month club for Christmas. Sounds silly but the fruit was fantastic. I knew I wouldn't have time to participate in cyber Monday, so I ordered Sunday night.

Not much saving today.
Spending - 1.37$ coffee (no milk in the deli) + 11$ chirashi (figured I needed the brain food this week).

    My inlaws got the fruit as a gift. They loved it!

    I've been just salivating over the Henry (or is it Harry?) and David's catalogs that they've been sending out. Not over the prices, though. The fruit looks amazing.

    I agree; the fruit is a very good gift.

    Have you heard of Yaktrax? You strap them onto your shoes and they are supposed to prevent you from falling on ice. Some people around here rave about them. I bought a pair but have yet to try them out.

    Packers fans here, too! (In Vikings country, yikes!)

    Yeah, I know what you mean about the H&D prices. I will tell you that we received the 5 month fruit deal (light). The fruit we received was picture perfect and appropriately ripe, packed in tissue paper, and came with a recipe, etc. And the boxes will be the right size for recycling - ie shipping stuff. That disappearing gift prospect looks pretty good if you've been in my sister's house. Clean and artfully cluttered (sister and her partner are both artists), but cluttered nonetheless.

    kashi - I'll have to check out those yaktrax-es. They sound fantastic. Good luck with your MN alternative lifestyle! Big Grin
