Drawing a Blank

I’ve been a bit…ah, tongue-tied lately, hence the blog silence. Birthday/Christmas/New Years tends to do that to me. Oy vey.

I get one thing in mind (like Christmas), and that’s about all I can think of. So, until the holidays are over and the winter gloom settles in, I don’t think much will be happening at the Overmyer household.

…besides tea-drinking. There will ALWAYS be tea-drinking.

Randomosity from today:

  • Had a writer friend over today and, well, WROTE

Before that happened, I:

  • Baked scones
  • Cleaned

After that I:

  • Washed dishes
  • Wrote more

Can’t you just IMAGINE how exciting my life is right now? Huh? Can you? CAN YOU?!?!??!?!??!?!?

Okay, backing off now…

The Cat has been waking me up at 3:30 in the morning by trying to open gifts. Seriously, Cat, NOT YOURS. Naughty. Coal for you this year!

Well, that’s all I’ve got. Off to think about Christmas probably.

Keep your pen on the page and share the egg nog,

“Gesundheit!” you say? WRONG. I did not sneeze.Ā Jolabokaflod, the word that has been circulating the web is the Icelandic tradition translated as “the Christmas Book Flood.”

What is the phenom? It is GLORIOUS! On Christmas Eve, people give each other BOOKS! Squeee! So, I may or may not have bought a bunch of books for friends and family to be given on the day before Christmas šŸ˜€

I am soooo excited! I’m even going to include chocolate (taking the book to bed with chocolate is part of the tradition, btw.) I hope to make this a new tradition.

Every year, my mom gives my sister and me each an ornament that has something to do with what has gone on during the year. Example: last year I “finished” writing “Scotch” (now under a new title.) So she got me a bottle of booze…ornament. Hehe.

What are some of your traditions? Think you’ll participate inĀ Jolabokaflod?

Whatever you do, keep that pen on the page!
