It’s the first day of December, so that means American Thanksgiving is over and we lived through another November. For the more religious of us, that means we’re now firmly in Advent. There are only 24 shopping days til Yule. Are you ready?
I used to joke that it’s a good thing the Husbeast is five years younger than me. After all, men often die an average of five years before their same-aged spouse, so I should have companionship all the way to the end, right?
This week’s Sunday Post feels a little sparse to me. Or maybe repetitive. I’m just surprised it’s Sunday again! I thought we just had one last week…
