Collin and I are going to have an exceptionally good Christmas this year. I started my shopping early, since I got my first Social Security check and a healthy royalty check in the same week last month. I expect to finish my end of things early next week. I doubt Collin will be very far behind.
We did decide, out of necessity, that we would each get one of our gifts early. Collin needs a new winter coat, and I have a feeling that, even though the fall weather has been mild so far, he'll need it before Christmas morning. I found a great deal on a coat I knew he'd love. It's water-resistant, wind-resistant, and will keep him warm even in the lowest temperatures (the customer review from the guy in Norway convinced me of that).
It arrived yesterday. He wore it to work today. See?
I get my early gift today--because he's at work and it's due to be delivered at any time now. He got me a big-screen Roku TV. The worse my eyesight gets, the larger a screen I need, even in our small living room. I love streaming--I binge-watch a lot (last weekend, it was The Librarians), so a Roku TV is the perfect choice.
I can't wait--even though it's going to mean doing some furniture rearranging tonight!
PS For the next five days, the ebook edition of The Unicorn's Daughter will be on sale at Amazon. If you haven't yet read it but would like to, now's the best time to buy it!
