You know the "Today I..." lists, right? They're always so quaint and fun. Well. My "today I" list is just weird.
Today I... sawed two 6 ft+ banana plants down to the ground. Took 45 minutes from start to end. Contemplated yelling timber. Did not.
Today I... went to a Cajun store to buy 18 pounds of rice. Tried to not gawk at the Confederate flag hanging above the checkout.
Today I... discovered I might be the only person who doesn't know the book/song The Christmas Shoes, and was informed that this actually means I lead a charmed life.
Today I... packaged up an order of photographs for the base museum in Wyoming and dreamed of a white Christmas.
Today I... wore sandals. Cursed the weather.
Today I... tasked Matt with finding me a list of not-sandal shoe possibilities to buy with my birthday gift card.
Today I... obsessively checked the 10 day forecast again and discovered with glee that it's supposed to get cold and nasty this weekend. I might be the only person in Louisiana to react with glee to this news.
Today I... put off grocery shopping at the commissary on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving weekend. Am engaging in a full-on game of grocery shopping chicken. The cupboards are (almost completely) bare but I will make it work for one more day. And if it goes well, maybe even two.
