But then Tito was in California for 2 months when his father was sick and died, then the holidays came. All of a sudden it was January and we still had 2 seasons to finish. We began to get serious and would watch three to five episodes at a time.
We finished today! We watched the last four episodes today and are ready for the final season to begin on Tuesday. And the way the finale from the last season ended, I am glad I didn't have to wait 6 months to see what comes next.

I have 2 perfectly good colanders. The green Tupperware I have had since the early 70's and is the one I use most of the time. I have had the other one for at least 15 years and use it most often for bringing veggies in from the garden.
But I have saw a new brushed stainless steel one that the holes are in the pattern of a leaf and I want it. Whenever I go into that store and see it, I think about what I can use it for - it is so pretty I could just leave the grapes in it after they are rinsed off instead of in a bowl. It is that good looking. Not that my family would notice because I leave the grapes in the green colander all the time. I haven't even looked at the price because that would be one step closer to buying something I don't need.
I also have completely functional measuring spoons and cups, but I have seen a sets of ceramic measuring spoons and cups. Each one is a different color. How beautiful would they be with my Fiesta dishes? Do I need them? No. Would they be practical? No. But yet, I want them.
I am always cleaning closets and drawers and getting rid of things. I am always telling Tito we don't need anything else. I always roll my eyes when he brings home one more treasure. I cringe when I go into the basement and see all the stuff we have. I have never been one who considers shopping therapy. I shop for things I need. A few years ago, Tito and I decided to not buy anything except food for 2 months. We did not think that one through - we had 3 birthdays in those 2 months - but we did it.
So why am I wanting these things so much? I really don't know. I don't think I am trying to fill some void in my life with things. I am content with my life most of the time. Maybe, I just feel like a need a little treat, a little pick me up.
But aren't you supposed to want a new dress, new shoes or jewelry? Who is tempted by kitchen utensils?

I am not going to get out of bed until I want to. I might stay in my pj's and watch TV. I might work on organizing pictures on the computer and adding more to my digital picture frame. I might organize my wrapping supplies. I might clean out a couple of drawers. (I like to organize and sort through things.) I might work on a sewing project. I might go to the library. I might take my sweetie to coffee. I cook a new recipe. I might work on the new jigsaw puzzle I got for Christmas. I might see Kaiden.
Of course if Kaiden comes over, he will bring his parents and if I have the jigsaw puzzle out a puzzle fight might break out.

Cold is a relative term. You see people all winter long in shorts and no coats. Our UPS man is one of them. I very seldom wear my winter coat, especially when I go shopping. It is easier to be a little chilly going to and from the car than carrying the coat in a hot store. My in-laws in California tell us how cold it is "it is only got up to 60". We tell them "it is so nice here, it got up to 60". I read follow a couple of blogs written by women who live in the South and they have been talking about the 2 inches of snow and cold that has shut schools and canceled church services. We would be shut down every week!
I wore my winter coat today and socks. I was cold waiting in the wind and snow for my bus. I wish I had my camera with me, because I saw a man in a T-shirt and shorts riding his bike. A crazy man in a T-shirt and shorts riding his bike.
Since I didn't have my camera, I had to post this picture again. He looks like he is ready to go to the stock show.

Everyone visited - some of us hadn't seen each other in awhile
