I pretty well refuse to think about Christmas before the beginning of November, but we're here, so I begin — with teensy weensy baby steps only, of course. One doesn't wish to go overboard just yet, after all. With regards to my wish list, it rather behooves me to get on the ball early because my ladies are usually at pains to get me to give them some clues. In the event, I have sent my Christmas list to Thesha and Cuppa. It's a list of two items. What can I say? I don't lack for much.
So, that's one Christmas todo item taken care of, and the other is getting my music in order. Last year, nearer to Christmas than it is now, my iPod lost touch with my iTunes, and I was forced to be without some of my Christmas music. So it was that I spent many hours yesterday, moving many tunes from the lost tunes folder to the normal iTunes folder.
Once that was done, I updated my iPod and discovered that I have almost 300 songs in my Christmas playlist. Good grief. That does represent many years and even a few decades of accumulation, but still ...
Included on the list are 12 versions of Silent Night, 7 of What Child is This?, 5 White Christmases and so on and so forth. Maybe I need to spend another day whittling down the list just a little, eh?
Otherwise, don't become unduly alarmed about me rushing the season. I just want to get the music ready; I don't really wish to play it yet. No, not yet.
