we began the round of fall/winter gifty events this week with Z’s mom’s birthday. Most of our family’s big days fall between November and February with few stragglers. Our Christmas box to Colorado always included nine Christmas gifts, and four birthday gifts. This year we are way ahead of the curve with most of the shopping completed in the way I like – seeing items that we like for a specific person as we shop or travel, the first gifts being bought way back in the summer when we visited the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse and stashed in the closet.
We enjoyed a birthday dinner for Barb at Crabby Bill’s minus the waterfront view because thanks to daylight savings the sun had set.
