I have tried not to consume in a way. I have bought christmas gifts to each and everyone, but things that actually are smarter than regular christmas gifts. I bought things we use in everyday life. Put them all to a nice bag and it looks like expensive “spa kits” even though they are regular stuff just put together into a nice package. It don’t cost that much and everything is something we use quite often. Perfect to give away to really anyone. Just adapt the things to the person. This I have bought today.
I hope my sibling enjoys the kit. I will also give other things, I bought already during the summer on summer sales. Also for usage, at least 6 months per year and for many years to come. Well most things I bought are everyday things. I don’t like getting non usable stuff. I usually just say “movie tickets” and then I am really happy. I like going to the movies.
Our kid started crying when we went to the car, so I left the kid at the neighbours. The kid would rather play with the neighbour and the kids visiting the neighbour. So I am glad I could do the shopping without a crying semi tired kid. It was a joy to go and get the kid. It was happy and is now sitting with me in the living room watching TV and enjoying itself.
My spouse left us and went off buying food. I am here at home. Blogging some. Not really having the need to blog about the world. I have had two articles published in the paper lately. Nice in fact. My work out there for everyone to enjoy.
Only 2 working days left of this year. That is not that much. I wonder what next year has for me. Perhaps unemployment? Perhaps a fun job? Perhaps a boring job? Who knows. Perhaps it is better I do not know. So the world didn’t end today. This I already knew. I wonder why people make these “doomsday” prophecies about the end of the world? The world will not end any time soon.
I haven’t decorated for christmas that much. A Christmas tree, fake of course. I am allergic to the natural one I think, I sneeze a lot around real Christmas trees. The pet has made the tree fall four times I think. It even broke one time. But I cut off the broken part and made it complete again.
I am glad I have the door to the living room now, so I can keep the pet out when I am not seeing what the pet does.
The snow is still heavy outside. The snow is still adding on every now and then. The cold is rather cold. I have decorated the outside some, but not in any way the American way. I just have a few decorations that give away the fact that we celebrate Christmas. Inside the living room I have the Christmas tree and some Santa Clauses. I also have an “adventsljusstake” (for candles lit at advent and Christmas). That is about it. I am not much for over decorating for holidays like Christmas. It is enough with these things I think.
Well, all christmas gifts are ready. Now the house must be cleaned, but not today. I am to tired after a week of work. Now I have to see what has happend in the world.
