Friday morning mom and dad and the dog and I walked downtown to Saints Rest for coffee. Of course we had to stop about once a block for my parents to chat with people out doing yard work, going for walks, driving past in cars.
Grinnell! It always does me good. I mean, maybe I don't know much else, but it really is the coziest place in my world.
But now I'm back in the real, non-cozy world, coming into a fast approaching December. I have declared numerous times in the past week that I've decided not to buy any Christmas presents this year. I also hope to receive no presents. I still want to do all the Christmas stuff: listening to sufjan stevens, eating cookies for breakfast, going to advent services by myself and pondering a lot. I just don't really feel like purchasing anything. So yeah, we'll see how all of it goes.
