Booksie's Shelves, December 16, 2016

It's almost Christmas so very busy everywhere.  I've been shopping, wrapping, and harrying a vendor who lost my husband's big gift for Christmas.  It finally arrived late yesterday after multiple delivery promises, daily or twice daily calls, getting the supervisor in California's personal phone number and tons of angst.  My daughter is now home with a first college semester under her belt.  The dog has been having health issues and its still unsure exactly what the diagnosis is but at least she seems to feel better with her new medicine.  All in all, ready for a good holiday with the family here and then a trip to visit the grandkids.
