It's not that I don't like the Christmas season -- I do enjoy it. I like the candy, and I like the concerts (especially the Lyric's sing-along Messiah), and I really like the Christkindlmarkt in Daley Plaza. I just wish it didn't begin quite so early. Oh, well. As long as I can find a box of Chanukah candles in the next few days, all will be well. CVS doesn't have them, but Walgreens might.
Apropos of nothing at all, Lexi the begonia looks like she's starting to bloom again. All her flowers frizzled off in the heat wave this summer, and then I trimmed her back severely for the move. But she's been growing and thriving on my living-room windowsill. I recently repotted her, and I think she's going to have lovely peach-colored flowers again soon. Yay Lexi!
