This seems early to me. Far too early.
It hasn't been thanksgiving yet! Who's already thinking of Christmas?
But, every year, someone asks me what I want for Christmas, and when I don't answer on time because I haven't though of it yet, they give me wool socks.
Don't get me wrong. I love wool socks! I wear them all the time! They keep my toesies warm!
But my socks-drawer runneth over.
So this year, I introduce the pre-emptive Christmas-List-Strike!
I could use:
Thermal underwear bottoms. My favorite is falling to pieces, it's a Duofold Women's Small. I like them because they are designed for a human being and not someone with a 14" waist somewhere in the vicinity of their armpits.
A fun winter hat with earflaps.
A petco gift card (what? grain-free dogfood is expensive!)
And of course: books. This is my current list.
Build Your Own Earth Oven, 3rd Edition: A Low-Cost Wood-Fired Mud Oven; Simple Sourdough Bread; Perfect Loaves
Kiko Denzer, Hannah Field
Handmade Houseboats: Independent Living Afloat
The Hand-Sculpted House: A Practical and Philosophical Guide to Building a Cob Cottage: The Real Goods Solar Living Book
Ianto Evans, Michael G. Smith, Linda Smiley
Wild Fermentation: The Flavor, Nutrition, and Craft of Live-Culture Foods
Sandor Ellix Katz
The Just Bento Cookbook: Everyday Lunches To Go
Tyler could use:
Shirts or Pants. He wears a men's medium shirt, and a 32/30 pant.
A bookstore gift card. (his favorite bookstore is betterworldbooks.com)
Convertible Gloves (fingerless gloves that convert into mittens)
Thank you, and Merry Christmas or something.
(it is too early for Christmas.)
*Disclaimer! By making this list I am not begging for any of the stuff on it. I am perfectly ok without any of it. I just wanted it out there because... socks.
