Lump of coal, no ideas and finishing up

- From Mr C's sign:  Santa's Main Coal Drop Off.  (Click to enlarge.)  I'll bet it is!

 - I'll be spending Christmas with my sister and her family at the farm in northern Florida, as usual.  Normally I know exactly what I'm giving my sister for Christmas, but this year, nothing has presented itself. (The rest of the family are easy.)  I asked her for suggestions and she said (apologetically) that she can't think of a thing (but please, no pottery or anything to hang on the wall.)  Sigh.  I told her that she might just get something crazy then!  So I've made a game of texting crazy photos of things spotted in shops to her, such as the cat necklace above, with the message "This might be what you're getting if you don't give me a clue!"  :).

- Or this monkey hat!  :)  This texting crazy things game has been fun.  Looking forward to more of that tomorrow, as I finish my shopping with everyone else. 

It's the weekend!  There's much to do, but I'm looking forward to it.  Hope your weekend is merry and bright!

Love Mr C's sign, the hat - and could see someone giving me that cat.
Have a great weekend.

A monkey hat? What a silly idea. Of course it would be more appropriate to go with the yellow duck hat. I can see it on the stand just behind the monkey.

I think "crazy" is the way to go...make it fun....we need more of that in the world today. :)

Apparently I'm difficult to shop for as well. My mother wanted to get me a jacket and couldn't find anything in the stores, so I gave her the Duluth Trading Co. catalog and pointed out the jacket that I wanted.

Although a monkey hat would work for me too. :D
