Still recuperating from a very busy week and so spent most of the day reading in bed again. I don't know if it's the weather or tiredness or what but my pain levels are back up too, especially in my hands, which makes working on the Xmas stuff not really happen so much. And my right hand has been going numb just from holding a paperback book, so I think I'll give it a bit more rest.
Anyway, we did go and get our Xmas tree last night from Home Depot. I rode around on one of the courtesy scooter thingies because spasms plus pain plus tired plus giant-ass store does not make for a good mix. This one was nice enough but very slow. Very reminiscent of the Seinfeld episode when George winds up in the low-speed chase on the scooters.
Our tree is very nice - a Douglas fir this year - and it smells wonderful. And we found wintergreen plants for sale and scored one. I was very excited - there's a part in Farmer Boy about collecting wintergreen berries and leaves to eat and use for flavorings, so extra nerd coolness. They should do well in our window - the need indirect light which is perfect.
