Retread: Weekly Wrap-Up December 21
Stuff that happened during the week of December 15-21, 2014
What’s Goin’ On
Friday was my last day of work until the New Year. As you might imagine, I’m a happy camper. I’ve been drinking beer, running, riding my motorcycle and sleeping until 7:30 (not all at the same time). I’m a lady of leisure!
Tomorrow I might actually go to a store to buy a Christmas present. Unless I wake up in the morning and come to my senses. But how often does that ever happen?
Much better than going to some stupid store (I’m not a shopper) tomorrow the days will start getting longer again. Today marked the winter solstice. We’re up and over the hump. You’ll get like 4 minutes of extra daylight tomorrow. Make sure you use it wisely.
It’s about time to start planning those road trips you’re going to take in 2015. Do you have your sights on any place in particular?
Hope you had an excellent weekend, friends!
This Weeks Favorite Tweets
I’m a chronic tweeter. When I have down time like being a passenger in a car or when I’m in slug-mode, Twitter is my go to fix for idle chatter. The amount of funny, interesting or beautiful things that zip through my timeline each day is pretty amazing.
These were some of my favorite tweets this week:
