Five Things Friday: just five things I’m thinking about or things that made my week, or things that I otherwise feel like sharing.
I don’t think I have not mentioned it here yet, but I got my booster shot last week (woot!). I was so excited when I was able to make an appointment at my PCP. I am especially stoked now that yet another variant (Omicron) has made its appearance on the world stage. Sigh. Do you think we’ll outpace the virus at some point? This is getting old.

I bought my first at-home Covid test yesterday. The fact that I’ve not had not one single Covid test since the pandemic started (I know!) should give you a pretty good idea about how much we’ve isolated ourselves the last 20+ months. But since I will be traveling next week for the first time in two years, I thought it might be wise to test before and after.

I think I received my first ‘mystery’ Christmas present yesterday. It was sent by Amazon, so I opened it, but there was no note or other useful hint on who had sent it. I use the same tactics for the holidays (ordering some gifts online and having them shipped directly to the recipient), but my trick usually is to put a (FROM SAN) line somewhere in the address if there is no option to leave a gift note. If you ordered something for me, can you kindly let me know so that I can thank you properly?

I am continuing to be a MudLOVE Wayfinder. I love supporting and promoting a small business with beautiful handmade items that support a greater cause, Water for Good. Every purchase provides one week of clean water to someone in the Central African Republic. If you’re still looking for some holiday gifts that make an impact, check them out!

I’ll start decorating – and baking! – for the holiday season this weekend, hoping that it will get me into the holiday spirit. It’s not quite here yet. How do you feel about the holiday season this year?
