I actually started some of my Christmas shopping on the weekend. It's a nice defense mechanism against Halloween weekend 'cause I do love Christmas! And throw in the fact that it's also Younger Daughter's birthday on Christmas Day so an early start is pretty essential for me to keep me sane. I couldn't believe all the people who had the same idea as me. The Christmas aisle at Costco and the Toys 'R Us were full of people literally loading their buggies with Christmas items and gifts. I have to wonder if they were out to avoid Halloween too. I was out to find hubby a birthday gift also because it's his birthday in November but this year I have no clue what to get him. I saw some radar detectors at Costco which I thought he'd want for sure, but he shot the idea down, as he did the GPS idea. Two things I thought he'd really like. Sigh.
I finished the book "The Help" this last weekend. What a great read. I'm really glad I finally got around to it. If you want to read my review of it it's up here at my book blog. Just scroll down to #39. Holy smokes, I've actually read 39 books this year. That's a record for me. And I have to say I've pretty much enjoyed every minute of it. I don't know how I went through those couple of years in the '80's where I didn't read anything unless it was a heavy duty Christian teaching book. Now, looking back, it doesn't even sound like me. Interesting.
And speaking of book blog, is anybody else having trouble with Blogger and adding colored text? Since they brought in the newly revised posting test, I'm having a heck of a time on the regular version getting colors to work. My book blog's gone from cheerfully colored to boring black text. Anyhoo, if anyone's figured it out, let me know.
So that's about a wrap from my exciting weekend. How about you guys? How was your weekend?
