     Christmas was quiet, and I'm grateful the weather was nice enough so that I could swing my Hastings on my way to the Towners to give Cindy one of my single-page calendars. A good time at the Towners, and also good progress on my verbal edits of the first Geren book.

     So Christmas Day was barely-white, but that night we were blessed with a couple inches of snow, the wonderful windless sort that stacks up on tree branches and makes the world look magnificent. That was a treat, as well as the fact that driving wasn't as bad on Saturday as I'd feared.

     Happiness is getting Christmas stuff at Cub, Michael's, and Gertens majorly discounted! I got a door spray and a wreath to make up for the one Shado destroyed, among other things.

     My reason to be out on Saturday was for a platelet donation. Very happy that my iron was high enough and the donation went well. Then afterward I got to enjoy the wonderful Panera gift card my parents gave me for Christmas, so I could pick up a late lunch and not have to deal with cooking.

     Sunday was special. Because it brings me to one month since Shado was rushed to the emergency vet, the day after Thanksgiving. I'm so blessed that he is doing so well, and that I got to have one more Christmas with him. He is obviously feeling a bit better, as he's been more playful lately than I usually see him in the winter.

     Very glad that with Geren book 1 almost done, I could start focusing on DWoT writing. Got chapter 11 finished Sunday evening, and now it's a mad rush to see how much more I can cram in under the wire before 2015 is over...
